Bucktown Arts Fest 2017

Kristine Campbell

Bucktown Arts Fest was my first art show. I was over the moon at the opportunity to showcase my work and bring the 'medley of mediums' if you will all together. One of the first things I did was sit down and visualize/sketch out what I wanted the booth as a whole to look like. I knew I really wanted to create and experience when someone stepped into my booth, for it to feel comfortable like you were stepping into someone's living room. With a minimal budget and a little elbow grease, the making of this booth has been hands down one of my most personally and professionally rewarding experiences to date!

 Fun fact: I was having trouble coming up with signage for my booth, I looked up and saw my great-grandma's embroidery wheel hang on my workspace wall and it's one of my favorite things about this. Her husband(my great-grandpa Charlie) made the newspaper/magazine rack next to the chair!

 Fun Fact: I cut off the leftover selvage from the backing fabric to my handmade pillows  to add a pop of color to these otherwise uninspiring glass containers for my buttons!
