Getting back in the outdoors summer festivals and fairs circuit at last



It’s nearly Father’s Day weekend. The first day of summer is June 21st. That’ll be the summer solstice and longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. 

And yet, I’ll be just getting to my first outdoor show of the year, now halfway over. In ordinary times, I would have tried to do spring shows, too, but these, as we know, haven’t been ordinary times. 

Nevertheless, I’m ready and eager to get back in the saddle! First up will be the upcoming Gold Coast Art Fair, June 18 & 19, 10 am-5 pm, in Chicago’s Grant Park. Come check me out in booth 452.


I’m doing at least two other shows this summer, including the Millennium Art Festival (July 15, 16 & 17) and the Printers Row Art Fest (August 13 & 14).

Come check out my latest, including fun, bright, colorful summer pieces, a few picks for the fellas and some select pieces in Pride rainbow 🌈 colors.

Use code WELOVEART22 at this link to obtain FREE tickets (otherwise, there’s a $10 admission fee on-site at the festival grounds).

Hope to see you there! 💕

    Jean, I absolutely adore your jewelry. Major talent has been released through your jewelry.

    My daughter Kim and I (lady who makes mosaics) stopped by your booth and really enjoyed talking with you and seeing your beautiful jewelry. I wasn’t prepared to buy pieces today but will definitely look for you at other art fairs. You are so delightful…keep working at your “therapy”…you are very talented.

    LOVE this artist!!! A true creative voice using abstract materials! My daughter and I purchased several pieces in Chicago today and admire them all! Thank you, Jean, for the great conversation and expressive art that will hold a memory for this trip! ‘Til we meet again, friend!
