Art Hive 835 holding HandMades Sale in Springfield this weekend

In this age of filter bubbles and hyperlocal content, we decided to go against the grain and launch a regional website because we wanted to draw connections between Central Illinois communities. And it’s been fascinating to not only bump into some of the same artists at fairs and events across the region, but to see them collaborate on collective exhibitions and projects.

And it’s happening again this weekend as Art Hive 835 hosts its third and final art show of the year, The HandMade Sale 2019. The event is in Springfield, which is the Art Hive’s homebase, but we can tell you by looking at the list of participating artists that many are coming from Champaign-Urbana, Bloomington and beyond.

Here are some of things you’ll find at the event:

There will also be an art raffle benefiting the Helping Paws Project, and some art created on the spot: Impromptu personal poems by James Escher and blind contour portraits by Kristin Diehl.
