Juried Artists

With more than 60 juried artists' work displayed, delight in distinctive, unique pieces including oil, acrylic, watercolor, jewelry, sculpture, photography, wood, fiber, glass, paper, metal, and mixed media, all available for purchase on Archer Road.

Fun for the Whole Family

For family fun, Be a Part of the Art and join in Long Grove's Art-A-Palooza featuring interactive art activities for the whole crowd, including: dart art; face painting; henna art; recycled music featuring instruments made from recyclable products; help paint an oversized drawing of historic Long Grove; see a Long Grove Confectionery artist demo painting in chocolate, and so much more.

Emerging Artists & Budding Artists

Part of the LGBCP's mission is to reach out to artists of all ages and caliber. In addition to the professional juried artists, emerging artists (including high school students and adults ages 18 and older) will showcase and sell their work in an oversized tent on Robert Parker Coffin Road, near the historic covered bridge. Budding artists (Children Grades 2- 8) will have the opportunity to exhibit their artwork in The Gallery studio on Old McHenry Rd. for public viewing, with school recognition.

For the first time, the Long Grove Business and Community Partners has collaborated with business and marketing students from Stevenson High School. The students have assisted in designing the Village Art Market event logo, provided creative input and volunteered to be on-site, the weekend of the event.
