34th Annual American Craft Exposition


Celebrating its 34th year, this highly competitive juried show and sale of fine craft features one-of-a-kind handcrafted artwork, museum quality pieces and luxury collections from the country's leading craftspeople. Meet some of the country’s top artists—along with selected emerging artists—in 12 media including jewelry, ceramics, fiber wearables, furniture, metal, glass, leather, and basketry. Peruse and purchase unique works of art before the exposition opens to the public. Enjoy an elegant evening with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and an exclusive sneak peek during the ACE Benefit Preview Party on Thursday, September 20. Funds raised at this year’s ACE will support important mental health initiatives at NorthShore University HealthSystem through the creation of a Psychiatric Urgent Care Program, vastly minimizing wait times for patients in need of immediate care, and a Collaborative Care Model, providing mental health services to families.
