Taking the Show on the Road

Leaving monday for the mid coast, to show our new work at the wonderful

American Craft Exposition at the incredible Chicago Botanic Garden

in Glencoe Il.

Our booth is in the Greenhouse Gallery, right across from the succulents garden.

Come by if you are anywhere nearby, or book your plane ticket now!

I promise you won’t be disappointed in the creativity on display in

craft form and nature.

Antonio Lopez

Summer is the time to rejuvenate the body and the mind, and even though it was in the 90’s in Manhattan yesterday I slogged uptown to el museo for some inspiration, and was thrilled I did not put this trip off……

The Museum is gorgeous and very cool, and spending a few hours with this incredible artist’s work  pushed all my creative buttons and was a nostalgia trip as well.

You have until Nov 26

Spring Wrap Up

Wow this Spring has been a whirlwind, busy, and lots of fun!

Many of you have new coats to finish up this chilly spring, and start off your fall fresh.

We are off for some R & R, & designing new work, so stay tuned for that

New Year Inspiration

It is always refreshing to put our own work aside for a moment and take in something else visually to kick off the New Year, and living in the New York Metro area there are so many great opportunities.

I’m so lucky.

So last week I checked this one off my list at Moma.

Picasso Sculpture

here are some of my favorites that inspired me.

Thru Feb. 7th if you have the opportunity.

New Design, and Inspiration at Gallery North

This past weekend we attended the

Opening Celebration of Gallery North’s new Arts Center

What a great space to expand on this vibrant arts community on the

North shore of Long Island

Many were getting their artistic groove on with the instructors who were doing demonstrations, and attendees enthusiastically partipating

If you are in the neighborhood, check out the exhibitions and great gift shop at Gallery North

and sign up for a class in printmaking, batik, textiles or clay

And yea, it was COLD! I got to wear my new shearling vest, one of our new designs we worked on over the summer.

The Best Kept Secret in The Berkshires! #FineCraft!

We kick off our fall season, every year since 2001, in one of the most culturally rich areas in the North East,

Great Barrington, Massachusetts, in The Berkshires, at

The Berkshire Crafts Fair

The buzz at the show is the quality here is on par with The Smithsonian and The PMA Craft Show,

and there is some great work here you won’t find anywhere else!

So if you don’t know of this secret, plan a weekend, take in the show and maybe a concert at Tanglewood, a dance performance at Jacob’s Pillow, some of the great shopping and galleries in Lenox, such as Sienna Patti Contemporary,  The Norman Rockwell Museum, and so much more!   If you do know about the secret, see you soon!
