25 Juried artisans sell & display their fine craft.

Featuring Juried Illinois Artisans. Including Dennis O'Malley, Wilmette, IL 

"O'Malley's work evokes the iron and concrete soul of the city with colorful swathes of life along the lake. His prints are a remarkable study of the "Big Shoulders" of the Midwest, and a breathtaking window into the dreams of the architects, engineers, urban planners, and citizens that made it happen.

Printmaking can be in intaglio printing, monotypes, or Polaroid transfer. He prefers the etching process, a form of intaglio printmaking, which began in the Middle Ages and was popularized by Durer, Rembrandt and James Whistler. Etching produces special aesthetic results because of the various choices of papers, inks, and printing techniques."
