2018 Summer Art Exhibit & Auction *** UPDATE ***
In January 2018, we ordered, and paid, for 25 Monet Rocking Chairs for our 2018 Summer Art Exhibit & Auction. These were scheduled for March delivery. Our initial plan was to have the rocking chairs painted and ready to showcase by Memorial Day. On May 16th, we received 5 rocking chairs with the balance to be shipping that week. On June 7th with no indication of when the balance would be received, we made the decision to offer an Adirondack Chair as a substitute for those who would still like to participate. The chairs will be available on a first come first serve basis for a sponsor fee of $50.00. If you would like to continue to participate, please give us a call at 815-568-6680 or send us an email. Our hope is to begin the auction on or around the week of July 16th. Thank you for your understanding.
Gemma’s Paint with Color (Formerly Andy’s Paint) located at 21714 W. Grant Hwy. has graciously offered a selection of mismatched paint at a discounted price if you mention you are participating in the Summer Art Exhibit & Auction.
