“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 over 175 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”
An important part of the mission of Barrington Fine Rug Gallery is support of charitable, educational and humanitarian causes. Please join Barrington Fine Rug Gallery to support this great cause.
