It might as well be in Spring Grove, Illinois. This Sunday us locals are putting on our annual art show, Affair of the Arts, at The Shores of Turtle Creek.
We started this show because we were wanted a quality show with a higher level of artistic ability than the typical “craft show”. We called it Art Market, and started to gather local talent.
We hooked up with another “home” show with Gabi Sparacio, who took steps to get us into a larger and more legitimate space, and began to host shows twice a year at a local wedding/event venue called The Shores of Turtle Creek.
This year we have a full house – over 35 artists on two levels. We actually have a waiting list and have to turn people away – something we only imagined when we began calling ourselves an Art Show. We have also grown to include the Spring Grove Area Art Walk – with local studios opening their doors and welcoming art lovers into their working spaces.
There is a great group of talented people coming to display their work. Many are regulars who have been with us since the beginning, but there are always new faces and new art to discover at each successive show.
