Art Exhibits in Winnetka

Welcome...The art community we have fostered here for 90 years is alive and well! It is a community full of rich experiences, shared passions, creative conversations and special connections through the offering of art exhibits in Winnetka.

​Our community doesn’t happen on a screen, it happens when we talk to each other at an exhibit; it happens when we get messy in a class; it happens when we sit around a table together to work on projects; it happens when we meet new friends at League events.  

​We welcome you to our studios and galleries anytime – we’d love to see you! We invite you to explore our adult art classes and art classes for children.
