Fall is just around the corner and The Schoolhouse Shop is preparing for the
25th annual Celebration of the Arts, set for Saturday, September 21, from 10
a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, September 22, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the
historical grounds in Furnessville, the quaint village near Chesterton next
to the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Park.
There will be 12 new artists joining past favorites in displaying mediums of
all varieties, including a range of watercolor and oil painting,
metalworking, pottery, and jewelry. Also displayed will be sculpture,
weaving and photography. Forty plus exhibitors will be participating in the
event on the beautifully landscaped grounds,
As a celebration of this, the 25th year, exhibitors and attendees will enjoy
the talents of Jane DeVries, who will play the harp from 1-4 p.m. both days.
Known as “your hidden treasure”, the 1886 brick Schoolhouse houses over
6,500 square feet for one-stop, refined shopping. The Magic Pantry offers
carefully chosen gourmet food specialties, along with Dunes Clothiers, a
boutique for both men and women of discriminating taste, and Lake Effect
Florals, offering flower arrangements for every occasion.
The Art Fair has no charge for admission or parking. Santiago’s of Porter
will cater lunch on the patio. Mark your calendars for a truly wonderful
weekend with a short excursion to the nearby Schoolhouse Shop.
