A few weeks before the 2018 Oak Street Fine Arts Fair, we spent a fun morning talking with reporter Chanda Green as Byron Hetzler snapped photos.
We loved the new feature story, Collective Souls: Oak Street Artists Nurture the Connections between Art and Community. Pick up a copy of the (beautiful, full-color, glossy) magazine where The Southern Illinoisan is sold, and see Chanda's story and Byron's photos online at the Life & Style website here.
Be on the lookout for a feature (and some photos) in April. We'll let you know!
Jennifer will edit things down to about 6 minutes for a spot (in April) on her Morning Conversation series. Stay tuned!
Ceramic artist and Oak Street Art Group member Darby Ortolano is featured in the November 15 issue of "I Like Illinois" as the Artist of the Month!

Thanks to the Carbondale Times for publishing a piece about our recent fine arts fair, held September 23!
Two of the six founding members of the Oak St. Art Group (Rachel Malcolm Ensor and Sue Gindlesparger) were quoted as they spoke about their vision for the fair. Read the full story here: Oak Street Art Fair: Using Art to Revitalize the Community.
For us, one highlight of the article was the final paragraph:
