The Garage Galleries art walk in Forest Park celebrated its fifth and largest year yet on Aug. 25, with 16 garages showcasing the work of some 40 artists. 

From painting to pottery to wearable art, the show highlighted the work of fine artists and artisans, including about 25 artists from Oak Park and River Forest, like Kimberly Adami-Hasegawa, who runs the Galaxie Safari homemade greeting card business. Adami-Hasegawa is a part-time employee at the Paper Source in Oak Park, and her cards can be found in the Oak Park Visitors Center. 

About 500 people were expected to attend the walk, with garages clustered from 122 Elgin to 1508 Marengo in Forest Park. 

"Thank you to all of our amazing artists and our wonderful garage hosts," organizers said in a statement.
