Great Family Outing

Fine art on display and ready for purchase to take home. Between visits to each of the over 170 artist tents and/or displays in one of the 3 barns, there are plenty of tasty treats to enjoy while viewing live entertainment on our main stage.

Kids can enjoy a petting zoo and feed the animals

or create their own art in the Children's Art Tent. 

This year a photographer will be present

to take family portraits in autumn settings. 

We have also added two other new events:

Chess Without Borders where you can test your skill and also "The Artist Speaks" where selected artists will explain and show how they approach their art medium.


Come enjoy the day, and be prepared to take home fine art to display in your home or as a gift or jewelry and clothing to wear or to share. 

Admission $5.00

Children 12 and under free

Sorry, no pets permitted.

Fine Art Show With So Much History

Art in the Barn began in 1974 when a group of ten women and local artists met to develop a quality art event for the Barrington community. What began as an art show with 30 artists and 1,500 attendees has grown to be one of the most unique and highest quality art festivals in the Chicagoland area with 170 juried artists exhibiting their work. Last year, over 6,500 people from the surrounding area attended Art in the Barn, where they enjoyed not only the exhibition and sale of fine art, but also music and entertainment, food from a variety of vendors, and children's art. Art in the Barn is one of the major fund-raisers sponsored by the Auxiliary of Good Shepherd Hospital, which has donated millions to the hospital. 

Visit Art in the Barn on September 27th and 28th, 2014 at Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington for Fine Art in Oil, Watercolor, Pastel, Drawing, Acrylics, Fiber, Glass, Photography, Digital Media, Jewelry, Printmaking, Ceramics, Sculpture, Scratchboard, Wood, and Mixed Media.
