This show is the oldest juried art fair in the Midwest, inspiring many imitators. One of the reasons this event maintains such a strong group of artists is that most of the artists are re-invited to return each year, and return they do. You will find the newest of beginners here but mostly some of Chicagoland's best artists who return year after year to a loyal clientele.
