Jefferson County Art Guild

Jefferson County Art Guild

Jefferson County Art Guild held open house Friday evening, Dec. 6 at the studio in downtown Fairbury. Although the night was cold outside, inside was warm and exciting as the group displayed their latest show. December features winter scenes and Christmas motifs, tree ornaments for sale and decorated gift-bags to give away. New art was woodburning pieces and colorful wall hangings created by Phyllis McCown.

Guest artist for the evening was David Hunt with his gift of guitar-music and Amber Rogers with a display of her varied art forms and outstanding photography. She uses unlikely pieces of metal, wood, vegetation, or just plain junk and transforms it into beautiful and/or useful works of art. She will return next spring with her show.
