The Show

The 38th Annual American Craft Exposition (ACE), a juried exhibition and sale of fine craft, was held at the Chicago Botanic Garden in Glencoe, Illinois from September 30 to October 2, 2022, with a Benefit Preview Party on September 29. The jury accepted approximately 100 craft artists.

Proceeds from ACE 2022 benefit an initiative aiming to help prevent maternal morbidity at NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore). These critical funds are raised through Benefit Preview Party tickets, general admission tickets, sponsorships and our voluntary Craft for a Cause program. ACE does not receive a portion of proceeds from artist sales.
