Free and open to the public, the 26th Annual North Shore Festival of Art will showcase the work of more than 100-juried artists from across the country in a variety of mediums, specializing in painting, photography, ceramics, glass, jewelry, sculpture, furniture, and more. Art enthusiasts can look forward to viewing the works of fine art photographers such as James Cole, who draws inspiration from European architecture and dramatic landscapes, as well as photographer John Galbo, whose internationally acclaimed imagery features well-known landscapes of Europe.  North Shore Festival of Art also welcomes the return of custom fine jewelers, Randy and Kitsana Polk who are enjoyed for their blend of contemporary southwestern flair to exotic and familiar colored gems. South Florida native Jennifer Ardolino will share her vibrantly-colored, abstract watercolor and acrylic paintings.

In addition to the incredible artwork available for purchase, attendees will be able to interact with artists through demonstrations and booth chats.  There also is the opportunity to partake in interactive art experiences, including Art Bingo for kids.

Complementing the European artwork, French vocalist, Michelet, will be performing throughout the weekend’s festivities. Festivalgoers will also enjoy tasty local fare from Old Orchard restaurants, including Uncle Julio’s, Maggiano’s and Johnny Rocket’s. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Skokie Chamber of Commerce.
