High in the Sky...

Good morning!

We're busy working away at our various studios as we prepare for Fashion @ 101 and the Peoria Riverfront Market... but that isn't all we're doing this week. (More on that in a bit.)

Relax, nothing is under control.

So, we're all entering into a hectic time of year. Summer is as hectic as it is relaxing. Case in point: How can four people print out invitations to a fashion event, check them for errors over and over again, and not even notice that they got the address wrong???

Not that this happened to us at The Sheared Edge.


OKAY, it totally happened to us at The Sheared Edge. As we blush, we ask you to remember that Fashion @ 101 is at 101 NE ROANOKE, not one street over at RANDOLPH.

The only thing left to do at this point is laugh about it. And we have. A lot.



So, relax. Nothing is under control!

Celebrating ArtPop Peoria!

In case you haven't heard yet, our very own amazing Dana Baldwin is one of the five winners of ArtPop Peoria 2016!!

We are ELATED.

This means she'll have her artwork displayed for an entire year on a gigantic 48'x18' Adams Outdoor billboard.

Dana Baldwin's 2016 Winning Entry


Dana was one of 4 artists who were handpicked by an excellent jury. Five other artists were part of a People's Choice contest (click here to see all of the images)... and the winner will be announced on Thursday.

So, here's the information on Thursday:

ArtsPartners of Central Illinois is hosting a big celebration for Dana and the other ArtPop artists. 

The featured speaker, Wendy Hickey, is the national organizer of ArtPop (check out the national page here and look at other participating cities)... and she loves public art. If you want to find out more about this program and celebrate public art and the ArtPop artists, then we encourage you to attend!

Seating is limited--click here to find out how you can get a paperless invitation! You MUST RSVP by following the instructions carefully.

So, congratulations to Dana... the Sheared Edge in the Skies over Central Illinois! How cool is that?

Until tomorrow...
