Garfield Park Conservatory Market Place

Yesterday morning I spent a couple of hours at the Garfield Park Conservatory (above) on Chicago's west side. They have a seasonal market place there and the director Lavette Haynes, of the WSCAC Village Gallery asked me if I would put some of my wall hangings in the community gallery. There are artists/craft-persons from throughout so that there is a variety of different type of items (paintings, sculptures, candles, handmade bath salts, etc.)
There is also an exhibit of mosaic sculptures (left) by Niki de Saint Phalle in the conservatory titled " Niki In The Garden". These are just awesome and if you are in Chicago from May to October 2007 do come out and see them and what's going on at the market (right).
