The 65th Annual Art Fair on the Square is the signature event for the Deer Path Art League and our gift to the community. The two-day, juried fine art show, located in historic Lake Forest Market Square, attracts over 20,000 attendees, is free to the public, and celebrates the individual artisan.
Last year nearly 400 national and international artists applied to participate. The selected 180 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.
Featured specialty booths will include the entrepreneurial Young Artists area with artisanal crafts, the Lake Forest/Lake Bluff Artslink tent highlighting over 20 community arts not-for-profits and the Information Tent, which details Deer Path Art League programming.
For over 65 years, the not-for-profit Deer Path Art League has been dedicated to the creation and appreciation of art through a variety of classes and summer camps at Gorton Community Center, exhibitions of student and member work, and the awarding of a scholarship at Lake Forest High School.
Hosting Art Fair helps to fulfill the Art League 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. We hope to see you there to help us celebrate the tradition of supporting the arts on the North Shore.
