On Saturday, June 22, and Sunday, June 23, 2024 The Morton Arboretum will hold a Wood Slab Sale. Woodworkers and fabricators will have the opportunity to purchase rare and beautiful slabs of wood. Turning salvaged wood into long-lasting furniture is a highly effective and beautiful way to sequester carbon.

At the Wood Slab Sale, ticket holders can purchase large, high-quality slabs cut from a variety of deciduous and coniferous tree species. The Wood Slab Inventory includes 413 wood slabs cut from 56 species in a wide range of colors and grain patterns, perfect for furniture and other fine woodworking projects. A limited number of slabs are highly figured, spalted, or contain burls for one-of-a-kind projects.

Arboretum members receive a 10% discount on wood slabs.

Wood Slab Sale
June 22 through June 23, 2024
7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m

Tickets $100

REMINDER TO RESERVE YOUR SEATS!
IAC Board Member Lecture:
Finding Purpose Through Intersectional Student Activism at the Chicago History Museum , Saturday, June 8, 2024, 1-3PM

Join Pemon Rami, a Chicago native and Black culture advocate, shares about his decades-long and multifaceted activism for Black lives. During this engaging and informative talk, hear about organizing methods, photographic history, reviewing FBI student files, and more. Rami’s legacy of activism sits uniquely at the confluence of the Civil Rights Movement, the Chicago Public Schools student movements, and the Black Arts movement of the 1960s–70s, and continues today.

The Chicago History Museum is located at 1601 N. Clark St., Chicago, IL 60614

Hello EAG Members. Art needs to be picked up on scheduled days. This time we had 12 pieces of art in our wee closet. Your work is not bubble wrapped. They are lined up next to each other. Do you know how difficult it is to enforce a $10 storage fee to art friends?

It is also not fair to the gals at the front desk. They work for the museum and not the guild. 12 trips to the closet removes them from the entrance to the museum and the gift shop and their jobs.

The photo are 3 works that have been in the closet for months. If need be we will reinstate the fee. Thank you for understanding.

Elmhurst Artist’s Guild

EAG Mission Founded in 1946 by 11 artists from the Elmhurst community, the mission of the Elmhurst Artists' Guild continues as "the charitable and not-for-profit functions of shows and exhibitions, workshops, lectures, classes and other similar activities which further the purpose of encouraging, promoting, advancing, and assisting art education and instruction, and the advancement of and development of the arts."

Membership in the guild is not limited to residents of Elmhurst, but is open to “any artist or lover of art in sympathy with and willing to work for the promotion of the objectives of the Elmhurst Artists’ Guild” with full participation “not to be denied to any person on account of race, color, religion, s*x, age, national origin, or disability.”

Our History The Elmhurst Artists' Guild, one of the oldest and foremost guilds in Chicago's western suburbs, was incorporated in 1946. The first Guild meeting was held in Ms. Jane Duncan's Art & Gift Shop at 551 Spring Road in Elmhurst.

From this humble beginning, the Guild has continued to grow through monthly meetings, artist demonstrations, and local exhibits.
