MICA: Art Market

As I’ve mentioned, MICA’s Holiday Art Market is right around the corner. If you’re around Baltimore, come to MICA’s Campus, Leidy Atrium in the Brown Center, this week to explore the ultimate holiday shopping ground. There will be 250 vendors consisting of students, staff, and alumni selling everything from jewelry  and pottery to handmade books and fine art prints. I will also be there, selling delightful handwoven gifts to tickle the fancies of book worms and textile lovers young and old. Come check out the sale, Wednesday December 9 to Saturday December 12, 10 am to 6 pm. And check back here to see more examples of what I’ll be selling leading up to the Wednesday sale.
