Let’s welcome Molly Walker from Dekalb, Illinois who’s brand-new to Greenwich Village Art Fair this year! She’s a talented printmaker, charcoal and acrylic artist. Molly is one of those rare artists who thrives in an organized space and her studio attests to that! She likes to keep everything in its place but still surrounds herself with the odd trinkets, collage projects, family photos and books for inspiration. Be sure to visit her greenwichvillageartfair.com page this weekend—find her (Molly Walker Studio 1601) in the printmaking category. @mollywhitmanwalker #greenwichvillageartfair #greenwichvillageartfairrockford

Say hello to Rockford’s own Chinacat (Manny Tang) and a peek at her workspace and art. In this first photo we see her work in progress which is a tribute to her heroin, Frida Kahlo titled “The Muse”. The next photo was a collaboration with artist Eamonn James (he painted the vibrant background) for Miss Carly’s, local charity, that helped raise $1500! The last two are a finished linoleum block ready for printing and ultimately the printed end-result with the artist herself. You can find Chinacat on GreenwichVillageartfair.com this weekend! Look for her in the printmaking and printmaking categories. And shop her fun print donation through our online silent auction at biddingforgood.com/rockfordart.@chinacat663 #greenwichvillageartfairrockford #greenwichvillageartfair

At first glance it's hard to believe that Kelly James' paintings aren't photographs but upon further inspection you see that they're in fact meticulously painted pieces of art. We're lucky to have her walk us through a brief process video of how she creates (if you're feeling ambitious you could even consider this a tutorial)! Click the link below to see her video and then hop over to greenwichvillageartfair.com to shop her beautiful work (find her in the painting category).https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Y_udYP-W08

Jessica Quam is a Rockford native who focuses on abstract expressionism with bold color and a unique perspective. She says that she believes in letting herself be completely submerged in her work, letting go, and not knowing where she may end up. It’s clear from these photographs of her painting in her studio that that is absolutely true! Check out Jessica M Quam this weekend at greenwichvillageartfair.com in the painting category. @jmaequam #greenwichvillageartfair #greenwichvillageartfairrockford
