Skill and imagination come to life mid-August every year at the Green Lake Fine Arts Show. Artists and art lovers will gather again August 10 and 11 to express and appreciate a variety of art forms at Playground Park in downtown Green Lake.

Art of every medium—oil paintings, watercolors, acrylics, drawings, photography, digital art, mixed media, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics, glass, and wood—is exhibited under white tents along Dartford Mill Pond. A walk through the art on these summer days stimulates thinking; aesthetic aware-ness; cultural exposure; creativity; emotional expression; an appreciation of diversity; and, most importantly, originality. Each piece is an original design crafted by the artist exhibiting, and all artists’ pieces are for sale.

A renowned juried show, it’s one of the Midwest’s best! Its quality, diversity, and 40 percent vendor switchover rate guarantee a unique show every year. “The Green Lake Fine Arts Show continues its tradition of excellence by showcasing returning award-winning artists and welcoming new outstanding artists,” says show organizer Ali Rae Rossburg.
