The Landscape in Art

Friday, July 15-Wednesday, September 14

Artist: Multiple Artists • Sponsored by Amdur Productions

For over thirty years, Amdur Productions, a nationally acclaimed arts festival production company, has organized and directed many of the Midwest’s most prestigious juried art festivals, including the annual ART AT THE GLEN FESTIVAL. Nothing speaks of the spirit of summer more than a leisurely afternoon stroll through a community art festival.

The Glenview Public Library will be privileged to showcase artists from the ART AT THE GLEN FESTIVAL (August 6-7) during late spring and summer Art in the Library exhibit program. Preview the vibrant art scene, then soak in a contemplative selection of landscape artists in two exhibits specially curated for the Glenview Library.

The Mission of Amdur Productions
Expresses a Deep Belief in Community Art
Art is our passion. It enriches life and feeds the soul. From art festivals to a global e-commerce network, we seek to mentor, educate and inspire the world through art. By giving artists the ability to showcase their original work across multiple platforms, we bring people together to cultivate an atmosphere in which passion drives business and opens minds. It is our mission to encourage artists to pursue their creativity and individuality, support our staff in all that they do, and provide unique experiences for the public. Art makes our world a richer and more beautiful place to live.

The Glenview Public Library shares this vision for community art and welcomes this talented group of artists to the Art in the Library exhibit program.
