Local artist holds “Pop Up Shop” event

Posted in Chatfield Arts & Culture

CHATFIELD, MN - Lanesboro artist Courtney Bergey will be featured at a “Pop Up Shop” holiday shopping event on Saturday, November 29 at Adourn in Chatfield, Minn. Bergey will be showcasing new ceramic and fiber artwork from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Ceramic work for purchase includes glass jewelry dishes, holiday ornaments, ceramic bead necklaces, and succulent planters. Her fiber art pieces feature needle-felted finger puppets for children and whimsical felted sculptures, such as anatomical human hearts in apothecary jars.

A “Pop Up Shop” is a one-day showcase of an artist within an established storefront space. The goal of these events is to bring attention to local makers and support small businesses.

Melissa Klema, owner of Adourn, specializes in rehabbing furniture and also creates handmade jewelry, pillows, and home decor. Adourn also features local soaps, candles, and vintage items.

“It’s so important to support the local businesses and the creative people of our region,” says Bergey. “Adourn is one of my favorite small businesses, and I have been a fan of Melissa’s work since she opened her shop in 2012. I hope this partnership event helps inspire people to do their holiday shopping locally, and support artists by purchasing handmade gifts.”

Adourn is located at 218 Main Street, Chatfield, Minn.

For further information on the event and Bergey’s work, visit www.courtneybergey.com or e-mail courtney.e.bergey@gmail.com.
