David Heino, in what he hopes will be an annual affair, has organized a two-day event in the galleries of the Kunzelmann-Esser Lofts, 710 W. Historic Mitchell St. A bohemian enclave of sorts, the Kunzelmann-Esser Lofts building is populated with many local aspiring and established artists.

“DanceCraftArt,” as Heino is billing it, will offer 40 booths of local artists and craftspeople offering unique items on the cheap, and will feature jazz and spoken-word performances in the second floor gallery.

The first floor gallery will host a new exhibit called “Winter.” Both spaces will be open on Friday, Dec. 11, from 6 to 10 p.m., and Saturday, Dec. 12, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Elsewhere, Blutstein Brondino Fine Art is exhibiting a collection of vintage artwork by Johanna and Addis Osborne, who designed the legendary Christmas window and store displays for the Chicago Marshall Field’s State Street store in the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s. The artwork is part of the 2009 Art Exchange, on display through Dec. 13, featuring works by Fred Stonehouse, Marc Sijan and Karl Priebe, among others, and poster lithography from Les Maitres de L'Affiche.
