The 31st Annual American Craft Exposition

One of the country’s premier fine craft shows, the American Craft Exposition (ACE), presented by The Auxiliary of NorthShore University HealthSystem, bringing together over 150 superior artisans exhibiting one-of-a-kind pieces, luxury collections and uniquely creative, museum quality artwork.

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.

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 fundraising goal by participating in the voluntary Craft for a Cure program and donating a percentage of a designated sale.

The 31st annual American Craft Exposition will be organized by ACE Co-Chairs Liz Dauten and Debbie Kerr and their volunteer Committee.
