KVAL is proud to bring its Annual Northern Illinois Art Show to the public. Held each spring in Sycamore, Illinois on the DeKalb County Courthouse lawn and now in its 47th year, the Northern Illinois Art Show features the work of artists in fine arts and fine crafts from across the Midwest.
This show is an outstanding opportunity for fine artists to reach a wide audience and a great place for shoppers to find unique gifts. Easily accessible and highly publicized, the Northern Illinois Art Show attracts artists, residents, and tourists from across Northern Illinois and beyond.
Celebrating 47 years on the beautiful courthouse lawn in historic Sycamore, Illinois, the Kishwaukee Valley Art League will hold its annual Northern Illinois Art Show on June 2nd and 3rd of 2018. This two day juried show features 60 to 70 artisans exhibiting fine arts and crafts in a variety of mediums including watercolor, oil painting, pencil sketching, fabric art, woodworking, pastels, photography, ceramics, garden art, jewelry, fused glass and other three-dimensional media. KVAL member artists also offer a group exhibit with all media. The show is advertised in local and suburban newspapers, and local radio as well as online and website calendars. The Art of Giving raffle is a popular part of the show. Customers can win original pieces of artwork donated by KVAL members. The proceeds from the raffle supports KVAL’s philanthropy program. Each year, art students from the local schools receive monetary awards and are invited to exhibit and sell their work at the show. Admission to the show is free to the public. Musical entertainment adds to the show’s relaxing atmosphere and food is provided by the local Boy Scout Troop 33. Setup begins at 5:30 on Saturday morning. Refreshments are complimentary for vendors. KVAL members are available to provide breaks.
