The Arlington Heights Art Guild will host their 52nd annual A Walk in the Park fine art fair on Sunday, August 27, 2023. We typically have over 80 artists displaying a variety of unique and creative works. The art fair is located in North School Park at 410 N. Arlington Heights Road in Arlington Heights, just north of Northwest Hwy. The fair hours are 10:00am to 5:00pm. Admission is free and there is plenty of free parking on the street as well as in the parking garage located south of the park which is free on Sunday. A talented member of the Art Guild, Lynell Ingram, will be offering free art demonstrations. She will be in the park all day so you can observe how she creates in mixed media. Lynell will be happy to answer any questions and many of her art pieces are for sale. Several Art Guild artists will also be displaying and selling their fine art in their Guild Tent at the north end of the park so make sure stop by. The money collected from the booth fees goes directly to our scholarship program. Each year the art guild awards three scholarships to senior art students in High School District 214. District 214 will also have their own tent and several students will have their work on display and for sale. See what these talented students are creating in their art classes. The art guild will award a deserving artist the “People’s Choice Award”. This award is voted on by show attendees. Who do you think has the most unique art or who is the most creative? You can vote for your favorite at the art guild information table where there will be ballots and a ballot box. The winner will be announced at 4:00pm. As usual, there will be food available for purchase in the park. We will also have a musician for your listening enjoyment. Each year we strive to make the fair a unique event for the whole family. We hope you can stay a while. Linger under the many shade trees in the beautifully landscaped park. Enjoy a treat or stay for lunch and listen to the music while you appreciate the variety of creative artists who want to share their talent with us. The Arlington Heights Art Guild is always welcoming new members. Stop by our information table at the north end of the park while attending the fair. Guild members will be there to answer your questions. Sign up sheets will be available. Membership is open to all art enthusiasts.
