About the Show

The Deer Path Art League presents
Art Fair on the Square
Market Square – Lake Forest, Illinois

61st Annual Outdoor,
Juried Fine Art Show

Sunday, September 6 &
Monday, September 7, 2015
Labor Day Weekend
10 am -5 pm

"Art Fair on the Square" is the Deer Path Art League's signature annual event and our gift to the community. The Art Fair, which attracts visitors from Chicago, Milwaukee and over 22 suburban communities, helps to fulfill the Art League’s mission to "spark, nurture and enhance creativity as well as raise community awareness and appreciation of the arts". The mission is as true today as it was in 1954.

Last year nearly 500 national and international artists applied to participate in this event. The selected exhibitors work in a variety of disciplines including: ceramics, digital art, drawing/pastels, fiber, glass, graphics/printmaking, jewelry, metal, mixed media, painting, photography, sculpture & wood. Silhouetted against classical architecture and stately mature trees, the artists set up their outdoor galleries around historic Market Square in downtown Lake Forest. This centralized arrangement makes it easy for visitors to walk the entire show. "Not too big and not too small", the show is the perfect size to comfortably visit and interact with the artists.

Featured specialty booths will include Creation Station an interactive children’s art tent, the entrepreneurial Young Artists area with artisanal crafts and the Information Tent, which highlights opportunities the Deer Path Art League has to offer.

Please feel free to contact the Deer Path Art League for more information, sponsorship inquiry or to volunteer. Be sure to "like" us on Facebook for up-to-date show information. Find our event listing at Sunshine Artist.
