Art in the Village, sponsored by the North Shore Art League will take place at Hubbard Woods Park (939 Green Bay Road) in Winnetka on June 22nd and 23rd, 2024 from 10 am – 5 pm. NSAL, the 100 year old arts organization located in the historic Community House, Winnetka is proud to promote this annual juried art show.
The park is a beautiful setting for a summer art fair - in the middle of the Village’s Hubbard Woods Design District. This boutique exhibition features artists from across the country showcasing their work, including oil paintings, mixed media, photography, sculpture, and more.
As an added attraction, on both Saturday and Sunday, NSAL faculty member and portrait artist Lisa DePinto will be on-site to paint quick oil portraits.
Welcome...The art community we have fostered here for over 99 years is alive and well! It is a community full of rich experiences, shared passions, creative conversations and special connections through the offering of art classes, exhibits, workshops, lectures and special arts events in Winnetka. Our community happens when we talk to each other at an exhibit; it happens when we get messy in a class; it happens when we sit around a table together to work on projects; it happens when we meet new friends at League events. Art endures - and so has the League! We invite you to explore our adult art classes and art classes for children.
We love our students & artists, so feel free to visit during office hours!
