The Evanston Art Center is proud to present the 7th annual Winter Arts and Crafts Expo. Winter Expo features one-of-a-kind pieces of work by over 100 selected artisans. Arts and crafts offered include original, handmade works of jewelry, ceramics, fiber, metal, glass, painting, photography, mixed-media, and more. All proceeds from the Expo will benefit the ongoing exhibition, education, and outreach programs at the EAC. The Winter Expo is the perfect opportunity for families to shop for everyone on their holiday gift list.

Winter Expo will be held from November 21st - December 22nd, 2009 at the EAC, and is sponsored by Whole Foods Evanston South, Blick Art Supply, Fifth Third Bank, Pioneer Press, Schaefer’s, and First Community Bank and Trust.

In addition to the regular scheduled Winter Expo dates, the EAC will also host a number of special shopping events. On November 20th from 6:00– 9:00 p.m., there will be a preview party for patrons to shop before the public, along with a silent auction featuring art works donated by participating Expo artists that ends on November 22nd at 4:00 p.m. Tickets to the preview party cost $30 for early registration and $35 at the door. Winter Expo also includes a non-juried, adult student sale from December 5th –13th in the upstairs gallery. On December 3rd from 6:00-9:00p.m. the EAC will host a Girl's Night Out where shoppers can enjoy refreshments and "mocktails" with friends, while shopping for gifts. The Men's Shopping Day will feature free gift wrapping, hot wings, refreshments, and "helpers" to find the perfect gifts on December 19th from 10:00-4:00 p.m. Finally, come to Winter Expo for hot chocolate, cookies and some last minute shopping on December 21st and 22nd from 10 - 8 pm.
