Upcoming LCAL Meetings​​

June 14 at Viking Park, Gurnee

LCAL June/July live show at

Starline Factory in Harvard, IL

For the last decade Starline Factory has held a very popular Fourth Friday opening event for a pair of 3-week shows. A juried show is held as a first-floor exhibit of established and emerging regional artists, while a second floor becomes a Featured Artists Gallery. Open Starline artist studios and live music will be found on both floors, as well as a cash bar. A long-anticipated June 25 Fourth Friday kicks off the first pair of shows since the Covid-19 pandemic, and the Lake County Art League was invited to occupy the Featured Artists Gallery through July 16. This much was announced to our membership in a May 27 Save-The-Date notice. Broad details are below, and a timelinewith final details will soon follow.

The Starline Factory facility is located in Harvard, IL, 40 minutes west of Antioch in IL 173. Our show committee will arrange for you to drop off your work in Antioch and perhaps elsewhere, and we will transport to and from Starline Factory. All work must be available to our show committee by June 16, with no exceptions. The show committee will also curate and hang the work with assistance from a Starline Fourth Friday representative. Physicalhanging requirements will be similar to what we use at the Jack Benny Center.

There are no entry fees or commissions, and Starline Factory will handle all sales during the Fourth Friday event.During the remainder of the show any purchase inquiries will be forwarded to LCAL for us to contact the artist. Sales tax will be collected by Starline during the Fourth Friday event, and after that Friday it’ll be up to the artist to collecttaxes on any sales.

The purpose of this League is to create more interest in art in Lake County, Illinois and to develop a higher appreciation of visual art. It shall do this through art exhibitions, festivals, demonstrations of art techniques, lectures, critiques and sharing of ideas, inspiration and encouragement between members.
