The Affair of the Arts is a Fine Art & Artisan Gift Show held at The Shores of Turtle Creek , a picturesque venue located in Spring Grove, IL. The spacious lodge will be filled with 10,000 sq. ft of original artwork and artisan crafts for one day only: Sunday, March 11.
Visitors are able to purchase beverages and enjoy complimentary snacks during the Affair of the Arts event. Wine, mixed drinks and other beverages can be purchased on the first floor, past the central fireplace. Hors d’ oeuvres and light snacks will be available. Admission to the show is free.
The first floor of Turtle Creek accommodates about half of the participating artists, with plenty of room for browsers to mingle and shop. Just a few steps away downstairs, you will find another full level of inspiring fine art & crafts to purchase. All items for sale are handcrafted. There will be something for everyone’s budget, from affordable small gifts to collector pieces.
**Although there are 2 full floors of fine art shopping, both levels are handicapped-accessible. There is a ramp to the upper level along the west side of the building, and also a ramp sloping down to the lower level entrance. The staircase to the lower level is located immediately to the right after you enter the main entrance doorway.
The lodge is situated on 32 scenic acres. Inside, there is seating along the large windows overlooking beautifully landscaped grounds. Inside the lodge, you will find 40+ artists…some of them familiar faces and some new. We hope you can join us!
