WHAT:  The THE CHICAGO ART GIRLS POP UP SHOP is just before Mother’s Day, where shoppers can find OVER 35 artists who create one-of-a-kind, handmade, high-quality yet affordable items for all ages and genders, including jewelry of all types, clothing and t-shirts for adults and kids, bags and purses, stationery and paper products, housewares, ceramics, glassware and enamelware, fiber work and felted knitwear, photography, soaps, paintings, eco-friendly wood accessories, reclaimed wood furniture and body care products.  The CHICAGO ART GIRLS began as a group of independent artists who met while exhibiting at various art fairs in the Chicago area and established an informal support group where we could ask questions freely about upcoming shows and share information about the art business. Emboldened by this positive local camaraderie, we decided to pull all of our strengths together to put on a ONE DAY show to showcase our talents and support LOCAL HANDMADE ART & CRAFT.
