The Glen is home to an annual art fair called, as you can imagine, The Glen Art Fair. Fortunately, the artists who display their work here are a good bit more creative that whoever named the event. Anyway, it was held this past weekend, August 6 and 7, and as always it was a very big success. This fun event attracted scores of artists from throughout the United States to Tower Drive, Glen Town Center’s “main street”. Attendance was high, and as they say, a good time was had by all.
The Glen is the north shore’s premier lifestyle community, meaning it has beautiful homes, an outstanding array of restaurants, upscale shopping, jogging trails, golf courses, tennis courts, and a picturesque lake. It is located on the site of the former Glenview Naval Air Station in Glenview, Illinois, approximately 18 miles north of downtown Chicago.
Visitors to the fair were treated to art of many genres including paintings, photography, sculpture, glass works, folk art, crafts, cartooning, digital art, and even what is known as “wearable art”. In fact, as I’m typing this blog, I’m wearing a striking blouse that I purchased at last year’s fair. I live in the Glen’s Tower Crossing development only a block away from the fair!
This will all occur again next August. You might want to jot it down in your calendar. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as much as those of us who are fortunate homeowners and residents of The Glen. And if you may be interested in living in the Glen, please give me a call. I am a local realtor who specializes in Glen properties – single family homes, row homes, town homes, two flats, duplexes and condos.
