Thanks so much to everyone who came out for the 2019 Holiday Art Sale by Oak Street Art and Friends.
We had a fantastic time in the Logan Historic Arts Neighborhood of Murphysboro, Illinois, and loved meeting so many nice people last weekend (November 16-17, 2019). What a great turnout! Please see artist list, photos, and Murphysboro Times story below.
Special thanks to Michael Jones and the General John A. Logan Museum for use of the building and for so much great support throughout the year!
A photograph by Oak Street Art member Ann R. Fischer has been accepted for the Detox exhibit at the New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art in New Harmony, Indiana.
Detox includes both visual and literary art "based around the aspects of conservation of natural resources, climate change, recycling, and carbon footprints," according to the call for entries. Ann's piece Cicada Wing Mandala (below) highlights the beauty and symbolism of cicadas, a group of species whose behavior is changing in response to climate change.
The exhibit will be up from December 7, 2019, through January 25, 2020. Everyone is welcome for the opening reception on Saturday, December 7, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. (Facebook event RSVP here.) Opening day is a great time to be in town, as it coincides with the popular Christmas in New Harmony events, including a fine art fair at The Rapp-Owen Granary.
