Art in the Barn
Saturday, September 28 and Sunday, September 29, 2013
(Always the fourth weekend in September on the campus of Good Shepherd Hospital)
Art in the Barn began in 1974 when a group of ten women and local artists met to develop a quality art event for the Barrington area. What began as an art show with 30 artists and 1,500 attendees has grown to one of the most unique and finest art festivals in the Chicago area with 185 artists exhibiting their work. Last year, over 6,500 people from the surrounding area attended Art in the Barn where they enjoyed not only the exhibition and sale of fine art, but also music and entertainment, food from a variety of vendors, children’s art, and pony rides. Art in the Barn is one of the major fund-raisers sponsored by the Auxiliary of Good Shepherd Hospital which has donated more than $7.3 million dollars to the hospital.
Art in the Barn is a juried fine art show and artists are invited to submit an application for this year’s event along with a CD containing four digital images of their work. Completed applications and a $20 jurying fee for each art medium for consideration must be postmarked by April 1st. For additional information, please contact the Artist Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org or 847.842.4496 (voicemail).
