I wanted to share that my daughter Jessica will be one of the 12 artists who will be a part of the Sculpture on Campus 2016 at SIUE. I wanted to include a poster here, but I can't figure out how to do it. Durp. You know taking it off Facebook--for me can be a bit tricky.
So here is the info:
Afruz Amighi: Visting Artist and Juror
This Friday, October 7 (yes, that'd be tomorrow)
4:00 PM Sculpture Walk
Departs from Art and Design West
6:00 PM Awards Ceremony and Reception
In addition there is an Exhibition Opening
Sculpture on Campus Revisited
SIUE Art Gallery, Art & Design West Building
And if I'm not mistaken, or if it was the same place as last year when I attended as Jessica's friends were in the Sculpture on Campus, the gallery will be just across from the reception area.
Art & Design Building at SIUE - doesn't really have a numbered address, other than it's on Circle Drive.
Here's how I go:
I take 270 North to exit 9 which is IL-Route 157, go left and then that takes you right into the campus, and the Art & Design is on your left, so you have to go to the first place where you can turn left, and then head back the opposite way—you're kind of making a Uturn so to speak because as soon as you turn, then the road to Art & Design is the next one (Circle Drive). Go to Parking Lot B (on your right). Parking is free.
Take the sidewalk (by the parking kiosk) at the edge of the parking lot and you'll see a dome-like building (on your left) that you will pass. You kind of go down a bit of a hill and the first building past the dome building is the Art and Design building - and people should be hanging out in front of that building.
You can text me or call me if you get lost and need further direction. I'll keep my phone handy.
And my younger sister is going to be in a few craft shows and here is her info:
Fiber Arts House (that's the name of her business) will have a booth at the Florissant Old Town Fall Festival on
Below is a flyer with the details of the festival.
Unfortunately they do not assign booth locations until that morning, so I can't tell you exactly where to find her.
Fiber Arts House will be at the North County Community Church Craft and Vendor Fair on
