May Art Fairs 2010

 May 1 is this Saturday and  May is the unofficial kick off for art fair season in the Midwest.  Here are three good fairs you shouldn't miss. 
Oak Park, Art in the Park 15-16, Mills Park, 217 S. Home Ave.
The hometown of Frank Lloyd Wright is the setting. You can tour his studio and the neighborhood, which is the location of some of his early work. The West Suburban Art Guild organizes this event.

Riverside Arts Festival, May 22-23, 
35 E. Quincy Ave
The entire town of Riverside is a national landmark, as it was  planned by Fredrick Olmsted, the nineteenth-century landscape architect who designed Central Park in New York. Beautiful homes and city buildings are hallmarks of this town. A walking tour, conducted by the Olmstead Society, starts off at 2 pm.

  Barrington Art Fair, May 29-30, downtown Barrington
Friendly little restaurants and an old-fashioned downtown area are two of the attractions of Barrington, long known to be the home of the horsey set. Barrington is a pleasant town to visit and the art should be fabulous. This is the newest Amy Amdur-produced art fair. If you are familiar with Chicago-area art fairs, you know that she conducts a fine show with high quality art and professional organization.
