The Park Forest Art Fair is the second oldest juried fair in the Chicagoland area. It is a fine art fair that showcases artists who work in a variety of media including painting, printmaking, photography, jewelry, woodworking, stained and blown glass and fiber arts. Over the years, artists have participated who travel from as far away as Canada and California. While one jurying has already been held for the 2010 fair, a second, special jurying has been opened for subscribers to this website.
