The 38th 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 100 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 14 media – baskets, ceramics, fiber decorative, fiber wearable, furniture, glass, jewelry: contemporary/semi-precious, jewelry: fine/precious, leather, metal, mixed media, paper and wood.

This important art event is also a major fundraiser supporting research and care at NorthShore University HealthSystem. Artists support ACE’s fundraising goal by participating in the voluntary Craft for a Cause program and donating a percentage of a designated sale.
