— March brings our Town and Country Art Show, which includes the Sharon Schmitz Regional Open Art Competition. As many know, this is a show that has been at the Village Mall for years and is now at the Danville Art League. All works of art need to be brought to the DAL from 2-6 p.m. March 1. Every year brings new artists and glorious new works of art in many styles. Please feel free to come see this show from March 5-27.
— The general meeting for March will have a representative from the wonderful Idea Store from Champaign speaking about its Creative Reuse Art Festival. This is called HATCH and is the first creative-reuse festival produced by the Idea Store, a Champaign-based creative-reuse marketplace. The festival features a juried fair and a juried art exhibition. HATCH is online; for a complete schedule of times, check it out.
We try to keep you in the know as far as what goes on with the Danville Art League. I have to say that my after-school classes are doing wonderfully. I have students who love art as much as we (the adults) do, as well as children who are well advanced in their talents and imaginations. We love art and would like to instill this love in everyone reading this.
Come visit us, let us show you around the place, take a class, or challenge yourself creatively. We’d love to see you.
