I have a thing for old windows and love it when creative people use them as a canvas for their artwork. Last year my favorite windows were from Marla Fry who unfortunately passed away this year. She will always be missed. Her husband has posted a final tribute on her web-site which reminds us all to live our passion. I still enjoy visiting and seeing all her happy customers with their windows.
My two favorites this year were again local artisans. Alison’s Stained Glass from Naperville makes gorgeous stained glass windows using vintage glass. I adore the planters with the colored flowers and the trees are outstanding. The next group of windows were created by Emmy Star Brown from Chicago who has an appealing fresh style. The black speaks to me. There were a ton of other talented artists and the show runs through Sunday. If you have the time, go, it is a not to be missed event.
