One of my favorite local events is this weekend in Evanston. The American Craft Expo will run August 23-25 with the benefit preview party on August 22.
For those who have never been, this is a highly competitive juried show featuring hand-crafted work in various media including glass, jewelry, and furniture. The event is presented by The Auxiliary of NorthShore University HealthSystem and supports breast and ovarian cancer research and care. The show is at The Henry Crown Sports Pavilion Northwestern University, 2311 N. Campus Drive in Evanston.
It’s really a fabulous show; I highly recommend attending.
