Artists and art patrons enjoyed beautiful weather and a new location for the Glenview Art League’s 68th Annual Summer Art Fair. Forty-five artists shared handmade paintings, photographs, sculptures and ceramics, jewelry, mixed media artwork and more. Live music, kids activities, and food trucks rounded out the community event.

2022 Summer Art Fair Chair Tom Pope adapted to many changes in cooperation with experts from the Village of Glenview, Glenview School District 34, and the Glenview Park District and more than many Glenview Art League volunteers.

Food was provided by Buona Beef on Saturday, Culinary Gangster on Sunday, and an ice cream truck. Musicians included Emily Patt, Reva Goodwin, Saffer Court Two, Nancy Kabat, Tofu Fighters, Terminally Hip and students from Twelve Tone Music School. 

Thanks to community sponsors: Abt (Silver Sponsor), Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Keonig Rublof Realty Group – The Doetsch Team, Del Vasey State Farm Insurance Agent, and Yoga Six.

Many thanks to the volunteers, including: Kimberly Schlarman, Cynthia Gitter, Hana Choi, Barb Kirpluk, Ray Piskule, Delayne Rittmueller, Carrie Pizarro, Tom Sheagren, Peggy Kullman, Howard Frank, Nancy Halliday, Christiane Bouret, Kerri Mangold, Bob Leopold, Laurie Walker, Iris Jutovsky, Eric Lee, Joanne Varga Tatge, Julia Miller, Jim Lavengood, Delayne Rittmueller, Kittie Yohe, Sara Patt, Adele Aaronson, and Hana Mohammed Raffi.

Thanks to our fearless chair, Tom Pope! And to longstanding SAF royalty, Sandy Sheagren and her family. Thanks to Renata Maliszewski, the GAL Administrative Assistant. Thanks to Deb Anderson and Patty Marfiss-Patt, who served on the SAF committee. The Summer Art Fair is our biggest event. It takes a lot of effort, creativity and planning to carry this tradition forward, but together we made it great!




A great comeback for the Summer Art Fair July 24-25, 2021!

A great comeback year and another successful fair thanks co-chairs Sandy Sheagren and Tom Pope, many
volunteers, community sponsors, and more (see below)! Visitors and artists alike are ever grateful for your
kindness, friendliness, and eagerness to assist. In general, the community was ecstatic that we were BACK!
The YAF winner, Maia Palomar, and Scholarship winner, Gretchen Bock were quite popular, selling some work and getting commissions! Congratulations to them! Balloon artists were a big hit with the kids joining
the other kids activities.

Bershire Hathaway Home Services Chicago – the Doetsch Team

Their generous donations have been greatly appreciated as we come back with a lower number of artists and no Silent Auction to raise funds.
Rather successful on short notice and first try. Run via a web-based fundraising company they randomly selected a winner from all of the entries. Congratulations to Tom Pope, the winner.


Mary Foster, Best of Show

Amy Taylor and Lee Colpi Award of Excellence

Seung Jae Kim and Jeff Chiu Award of Merit

1st place: Ray Piskule

Our Summer Art Fair is volunteer run and helps support area art programs for adults and children through the Glenview Art League. We are extremely grateful for our sponsors, artists, members, volunteers and those that made donations and bid up raffle items. We’ve spent 66 years devoted to focusing on the support of area arts and thanks to you we will continue our mission!
