FEATURED ARTIST: Wynter Harrington Peguero
Sculptor, Painter: Masks, sculptures, dragons
Freelance Professional Photographer
Now living in St. Joseph, IL, born & raised in Phoenix, AZ, Wynter
moved to the midwest in 1999 and began taking classes within a few years
at Danville Community College,
where her sculptures immediately began
taking 1st prize honors.
Her passion for art and keen eye have also led
her into the realm of professional photography, where babies/children
and outdoor shoots have become a specialty.
With a rich tapestry of
Irish and Cherokee Indian heritage,
her subject matter and creations are
varied and creative,
making them excellent collection and decorating
pieces for home décor or for gifts.
To truly appreciate her
sculptures, you need to view them in person.
For the Boneyard Arts
Festival, her work will be on display Friday, April 12, 11am to 6pm;
Saturday, April 13, 10am to 5pm (Meet the Artist from 3 to 4pm (or

The Trikhala Bellydance Troupe,
made up of University of Illinois undergraduate
and graduate students,
will perform their style of tribal fusion dance--
a mixture of American
tribal-style bellydance, traditional ethnic bellydance and
dance styles such as hip-hop.
Come watch them dance and dance with them.

Beads Trunk Show
at Beads N Botanicals in downtown Urbana, IL will
offer seed beads in Size 15, 11, 11 hex, 10, 8, 8 hex, 6, triangles,
bugles, teardrops and squares. ChaCha travelled to Hiroshima, Japan and
Murano, Italy to find new and unusual beads in Fancy Finishes and Great
Colors to spark your creative imagination!
Japanese seed beads
are precision cut to enable you to make precise designs in woven
beadwork. The newest finishes are permanent metallic and anodized beads.
For example, you will find Size 6 and size 8 beads for your kumihimo necklaces and bracelets in hard-to-find colors and finishes.
The Italian beads are different when compared to Japanese or Czech
beads. The color you see is the actual color of the glass, not dyed or
coated. The Pinks and Purples have real Gold in the glass, causing it to
'strike' different colors when it is made into beads. They are made in
small handmade batches, not by machine like the other seed beads, making
them unique. These are not available anywhere else but ChaCha Beads
The show will take place April 26, 27 & 28 and May 3, 4, & 5 in our classroom at the shop.
If you've never participated in a bead trunk show, the concept is
pretty simple. Think of a traveling bead show where you can find all
sorts of treasures, but for a limited time. Cha Cha Beads will ship a
huge selection to our shop. When the show is finished, we return
whatever beads remain back to Cha Cha.
This enables us to
offer you a much larger selection of beads. In the Champaign-Urbana
area, you will not find a larger, more complete, or fantastic selection
of seed beads than you will find at this show. We hope you will enjoy
ChaCha Beads as much as we do.
