August 3 SPECIAL OUTING Independence Park Farmers' Market

This Sunday there is a special outing to the Independence Park Farmers' Market.

The market organizer writes as follows:

"Our Farmers Market runs from 8 am to noon. There's street parking or in the park lot (entrance on Springfield just north of the fieldhouse). The market is set up along Irving Park Road between Springfield and Hamlin. We've been promoting the artists and the response has been very good. Folks are looking forward to this. We have bluegrass musicians who come and play every market. Neighbors can join in their fun too. It think this is going to be just great. Plus you can get really good food, cut flowers, and baked goods."

Sounds awesome!

August 2 Andersonville

This Saturday meet in Andersonville at the Starbucks at 5300 N. Clark. Paintings done in the neighborhood will be needed for the show in Edgewater in the fall.

July 12 Bucktown Garden Walk

This Saturday is the Bucktown Garden Walk. Meet at Club Lucky, where the show will be.

More info from Stephanie W.'s email:

This weekend we will be painting in Bucktown as part of the Bucktown Garden Walk. We can paint on both Saturday and Sunday. You are welcome to start painting at our early start of 8:30 am but the garden walk is officially scheduled from 11 am to 5 pm both days. There will not be a critique.

The Bucktown Garden Walk information table will be set up at Club Lucky (1824 West Wabansia) and the PAPC art exhibit and sale will be hung in their party room. You can paint anywhere you like including inside the gardens on the list previously sent out by Stephanie. You may want to stop by the information table to get an official map of the garden walk. As a courtesy, always ask if you can set up in a garden if it is not a public parkway garden.

Also, please stop by the information table to pick up a sign to hang on your easel saying you are part of the garden walk and are with the PAPC. You are welcome to sell your paintings as you paint (bring a few other paintings to sell too). You can keep 100% of any sale proceeds from street sales. If you need to charge the sale, you can go to the information table but you will have to donate 25% of your sale to the Bucktown Commuity Organization.

There will be a trolley taking people around and making stops at key areas including Club Lucky.

Time: 8:30

No critique this Saturday. Have fun!
