This year's artwalk is going to be bigger and better than ever. Check out the website, ocgart.org for all the details.

We have Jennifer Angus, fiber artist from University of Wisconsin doing quilt patterns on the walls of the Maves Art Center using bugs. They are truly beautiful.

We have Adam Long of St. Charles, MO doing amazing nature sculptures in the Kaskaskia College building.

We have Eleanor Pennington, Lynn Reznick, and Lorraine White in the Old Firehouse Emporium.

We have Keith Buchholz, Mary Ratcliff Harnetiaux and a group of ex-patriots coming home to show in the Northcott House, with music and entertainment by Stephanie Plant.

And in the Bradford Community Building we have demonstrations by Mississippi Mud Pottery, weaving by Craig and Carolyn Hart of Vandalia, tatting by Mark Myers and maybe more.
