NIA Memories

NIA summer show

Today being the summer solstice, I can’t help but reminisce about last year’s NIA art show, which took place on the summer solstice. Art of the Solstice featured work by Natalie Walser, Jerry Sacher, Christina Bosco, Dean Johnson, and Terrie Byrne (shown l-to-r in the photo above). Great memories!

This anniversary also gets me thinking about our next show, NIA Fine Art Friday, which will take place on Friday, December 2, 2016. We look forward to exhibiting with Christopher Berry, with whom we have been working all year on various NIA fundraisers.

Our Indiegogo campaign has officially closed, but stay tuned for news about more fundraising efforts from NIA, including a Summer Wine Tasting!

Class Cancelled

Unfortunately, the first NIA workshop, You Be The Artist Night, has been cancelled due to low registration. I blame the beautiful weather we’re having in Chicago! Who wants to be stuck indoors?

We will hopefully be able to bring you this class again in the future. If you’d like to receive announcements regarding NIA events, please send a brief request to our e-mail address:

In other news, there are just a few hours left in our Indiegogo fundraising campaign for NIA Fine Art Friday, and we’re still a long way off from our goal! We could really use your help, so please bounce over to our campaign using this link.

2 Days Left!

NIA Fine Art Friday Two DaysThere are only 2 days left in our fundraiser campaign! We’re so grateful to the 2 people who have donated so far, but it’s not enough. If you have just one dollar to spare, please help us fund our exhibit, NIA Fine Art Friday. We cannot do this without your support.

Here is the URL for our Indiegogo campaign: Click on the link, or copy and paste it into your browser. If you read our campaign page, you will learn about the history of NIA, our plans for the exhibit, and reasons why you should consider making a donation.

If you can’t contribute even a dollar, we understand. You can still do us a solid by sharing our campaign URL on your social media! Please stress the fact that time is running out….

From all of us NIA participants, Thank You!
