Spring and Summer Schedule, 2015
Starting in March, I work Wednesdays at The Art Shoppe at 920 E Lake Street, Minneapolis, MN, 55407. The Art Shoppe is a consignment shop for artists located in the Midtown Global Market. It is one stall down from the Children’s Play area which makes it a great location for me to provide face-painting services when I work there. They also sell my cards and Art Prints at The Art Shoppe. If there is a specific design or amount you wish to purchase, please contact me ahead of time so I can make sure it is in stock for you. I also try to face-paint as often as I can at the Friday Family Fun Nights in the Midtown Global Market next to the stage where live music is being played. The family-friendly bands such as The Roe Family Singers start performing at 5:30pm and usually end at 7:30. Please send me an e-mail if you are wondering if I will be at a specific Friday Family Fun Night.
Saturday, March 14th is the Green Craft Fair at the Midtown Global Market. I will have my table set up to sell art cards, prints, and face-painting from 10am to 5pm on that day.
Thursday evening, March 19th, from 5:30 to 7pm, I have a personal “Meet and Greet” scheduled for The Art Shoppe in the Midtown Global Market (the old Sears building at 2929 Chicago Ave. S, Minneapolis, MN, 55407) on the Lake Street Side.
Friday, May 1st I will be the “Superhero Face-Painter” for the McDonough Recreation Center for 3 to 6 pm and am super excited about being asked to come back there. 🙂
Saturday, May 2nd from 9am to 4pm we will kick-off the Eastside Open Market (our local farmer’s market) at the First Lutheran Church of St Paul, 463 Maria Avenue, St Paul, MN, 55106 with a Spring Boutique. We have given the neighborhood 2 years of Holiday Boutiques and now are going to try a Spring offering as well. Our farmer’s market will follow this event shortly.
Saturday, May 16th and Sunday May 17th I will be the “Superhero Face-Painter” in full costume at the Midwest Comic Book Associations MSP Comicon. The MSP Comicon will be held at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds Grandstand, 1265 Snelling Ave. N., Saint Paul, MN, 55108, and both days the doors will open at 10am and close at 5pm.
Thursday, May 21st from 4 to 8 pm I will be sponsoring a chalk art contest at the Eastside Open Market. The chalk is provided and anyone can enter. First prize is $25 and second prize is an assortment of art materials. The Eastside Open Market is our local farmer’s Market held every Thursday night at the First Lutheran Church of St Paul. Our tagline is, “We Make It Or Grow It.”
Saturday, June 6, I will have a booth at the Swede Hollow Art Festival down in picturesque Swede Hollow Park. This outdoor event will take place rain or shine and starts 10am. To gain entrance into this St Paul Park park go to Beaumont at Drewry Lane, which is one block south east of Payne and East Minnehaha Avenues (watch for the signs). In case of rain it will be held at the Hope Academy at the corner of Payne Avenue and Minnehaha.
Wednesday evening, June 17th I will be face-painting at the Community Picnic for Mounds Park United Methodist Church. This picnic will be held at the Indian Mounds Park next to their new playground unless it is raining. In that case it will be held inside the Mounds Park United Methodist Churches basement fellowship hall.
Wednesday, July 8, I will be face-painting at the Metropolitan State Library outdoors. Open Eye Theater will be performing “Tucker’s Robot” from 6-8pm. This event is free and open to the public. Hope to see you soon! Thank-you, Diane.
