Art at the Glen

Dozens of artists and artisans in all media are scheduled to exhibit and sell their work at Art at the Glen on Saturday and Sunday, July 30-31.

 

Located outdoors in The Glen Town Center, 2030 Tower Drive, the 19th Art at the Glen runs from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. both days.

A glimpse at the current roster of presenting artists includes paintings, fiber, jewelry, ceramics photography, creations in metal, glass, wood and stone, and other media.

Several artists are participating in promoter Amdur Productions' Green Ribbon Project, which donates 10% of sales on designated pieces to Make-A-Wish Illinois.

Also, attendees can bring lightly used wall art for donation to the Chicago Furniture Bank, a nonprofit that distributes furnishings to people leaving shelters to move into permanent housing.

Three stages near the art festival will offer live music, and children can take part in their own art projects at the show, which is handicap-accessible.

Food for thought

The Glenview Farmers Market, from 9 a.m.-noon every Saturday through Oct. 22 at Wagner Farm, 1510 Wagner Road, hosts a "Green Table" every week.

Staffed by a different entity or organization each week, the Green Table presents information to shoppers and residents on topics regarding sustainability, recycling and protecting the environment. Co-sponsored by the Village of Glenview and the Glenview Park District, the Green Table has been a feature at the farmers market since 2009.

This Friday, July 30, Friends of Downtown Glenview, a winner of one of the village's annual Sustainability Awards, will helm the Green Table.

Through August, other organizations or topics at the Green Table are schedule to be: the Forest Preserve District of Cook County (Aug. 6), Blue Star Recyclers (Aug. 13), Intrinsic Landscaping (Aug. 20) and The Grove (Aug. 27.)

Blue Star Recyclers and Intrinsic Landscaping also are Glenview Sustainability Award winners.

For information on the market and the Green Table, call (847) 657-1506.
