The 2017 Chicago Art Girls pop-up covers a wide range of handmade art, including jewelry, ceramics, felted accessories, glass, clothing, painting, and photography. In addition to core Chicago Art Girls members, there will be guest artists so shoppers can visit their favorite artists and meet some who are new to this show.

ABOUT CHICAGO ART GIRLS: Chicago Art Girls began as a small group of local, independent women artists who met and bonded while exhibiting their work at various regional and national art fairs. In the late 90’s, they established an informal support group that meets for monthly potlucks where both networking for the business of art takes place, as well as valuable social interaction and a place to let go and LAUGH. In 2012, emboldened by many years of positive local camaraderie, the group decided to pool their strengths to host their own pop-up shops, showcasing their talents while promoting local handmade art and craft.
