Great Art at Great Prices!

Highwood, Illinois • September 23 & 24, 2017 • Saturday & Sunday 10a-5p

Great Art at Great Prices!

The Starving Artists Show is a wonderful change of pace; a different type of show. Artists will sell their odd pieces and clear their art inventory at this end-of-season outdoor show. This is a show where artists can discount, reduce, and generally sell off extra art inventory. Visitors can come looking for bargains on everything from jewelry to ceramics to fine art. This unique art fair offers artists the opportunity to sell off their inventory at the end of the season; great art at great prices!

Free and open to the public, the Starving Artists Show will showcase the work of up to 120 juried artists from around the world in a variety of mediums, including ceramics, fiber, glass, jewelry, painting, sculpture and more. In addition to the incredible artwork available for purchase, attendees will be able to interact with artists through demonstrations and booth chats.  Live music, kid-friendly activities, and tasty treats also will be available for visitors to enjoy.
