A lively line-up of artists and crafters will be exhibiting at Architectural Artifacts’ curated Spring Show this Sunday, April 19, from 10–5. Sixty-plus, as a matter of fact, and with all that jewelry, handmade paper, ceramics, textiles, and glassware on display it should be a cinch to find a standout Mother’s Day gift. I’m intrigued by these Olive Kraus hand-carved doorknobs set in sterling silver, and there’s nothing crunchy about the kiln-formed fused glass pieces of Sandra Schwarzbeck. (Or you could always splurge on some Fer Forgé ironwork from Stuart’s inventory-it’s all good.) Vella Café will be onsite with sammys and snacks, there’s no admission charge, and you’ll find ample free parking along Ravenswood.
