Pearl — a pop up art boutique — will materialize in Downers Grove during its Ladies Night Out on Thursday evening, Sept. 27.

Five artists belong to the artist collective, including Heather Klausa of Downers Grove, who says the group’s goal is “making unique, accessible and affordable art.”

The collective, which includes Liz Wolf, Robbie Deiters and Amy Desmon, was founded by Colleen Walsh, explains Klausa.

“We were a group of artists that all worked in creative fields, but were no longer showcasing our own artwork on a large scale,” she says. “Colleen pulled the group together, and brainstormed the unique gallery show that is today Pearl a pop up art boutique. Our boutique appears temporarily for a day or so, always in different locations for a brief amount of time. We have had several successful shows throughout the Chicagoland area, and are excited to appear in the suburbs.”

The event takes places from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27, at The Spice Merchants, 5225 Main St., in downtown Downers Grove.

“We hope to see people checking out the wonderful spices, blends and teas available at Spice Merchants, and checking the unique offerings of Pearl,” Klausa says.

Artist’s creations range from traditional prints and jewelry to terrariums and unusual, but practical, home goods.
