One of the country’s premier fine craft shows, the American Craft Exposition, presented by The Auxiliary of NorthShore University HealthSystem, brings together 164 superior artisans exhibiting one-of-a-kind, museum quality work.

This important art event is also a major fundraiser supporting critical breast and ovarian cancer research and care at NorthShore University HealthSystem. Artists support ACE's funding goal by participating in the voluntary Craft for a Cure program and donating a percentage of a designated sale.

A highly competitive juried show, ACE features hand-crafted work in 12 media—baskets, ceramics, fiber decorative, fiber wearable, furniture, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media, paper and wood.

The Auxiliary of NorthShore invites you to join us at the 30th American Craft Exposition. Enjoy the beauty and creativity, talk with the artists who live by their craft and support promising medical research with your admission donation.

Your admission ticket serves as a three-day pass to the Exposition.

Be among the first to appreciate the artistry and attend the Benefit Preview Party.
