2016 Art in the Barn A Great Success!

On Saturday and Sunday, September 24 & 25, 2016 we celebrated 42 years of bringing fine art to our community. Held on the grounds of Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington, IL, more than 5,000 visitors enjoyed the 175 artists exhibiting in all art mediums.  See the 2016 award winning artists!   This beautiful fall festival continues to provide an ideal gathering place for a weekend of art, entertainment, food, and fun for the entire family. What a wonderful way to welcome the fall season.  

We thank the artists and vendors who donate a portion of their sales from this event, as well as our sponsors, and the more than 400 volunteers in our community who donate their time, experience and talent to Art in the Barn and Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital.  Because of you, we had another great art show!
