In April, The Chesterton Art Center presents 

The Duneland Weaver’s Guild Style Show & Exhibit

and Our Children’s Art Education Show Called “Art, Sweet Art!”

The Duneland Weaver’s Guild will host their annual Fashion Show at the Chesterton Art Center on Sunday, April 7 at 2:00. This 70 year-old fiber group consists of approximately 60 members who are interested in not only weaving, but spinning, crocheting, knitting and felting. During the fashion show, guests will see a wide array of handmade, wearable art – much of it for sale. The event will be emcee’d by one of the members and guests are encouraged to arrive early since seating is limited. The doors will open at 1:00.

After the fashion show, the work will remain hanging at the Chesterton Art Center for the rest of April. The exhibit will consist of not only wearable work, but homegoods and tapestries as well. The Duneland Weaver’s Guild meets on the second Saturday of each month at the Westchester Public Library Baugher Center from 10-12 beginning in September and ending in May.

The Chesterton Art Center will host work by their children’s classes in an exhibit titled, “Art, Sweet Art” during the month of April. The exhibit will kick off with an Opening Reception on Sunday, April 14 from 2-4 p.m. The Chesterton Art Center offers (8) children’s classes each week from September to May. Classes include preschool, after school and home school children ages 3-16. Each month, Jennifer Martin selects a different artist to study and the children do projects that revolve around that artist’s style and subject matter. “Art, Sweet Art” will be a colorful collection of nearly an entire school year’s worth of artwork.
All are welcome to attend the Opening Reception for, “Art, Sweet Art” – it is a free event and open to the community. The exhibit will hang in the gallery through the end of April.


The Chesterton Art Center is excited about expanding our class offerings in 2019!
