Art in the Country – Old Sandstone Gallery

Every Saturday
Saturday, September 8, 2018 - Saturday, September 29, 2018

Encore! Mt. Morris announces its September events for 2018. The new art show opens in the Old Sandstone gallery Sept 8, 5-8pm with opening night activities including refreshments (cider and cider donut holes), opportunities to meet the artists for the “Art in the Country” new show, and gentle music.

This show continues the September tradition of displaying a variety of fine art in several media. Many of the pieces are available for purchase, as well as additional prints supplied by the artists. In addition to opening night, the gallery will also be open on Saturday afternoons 2-4pm.

Also in September, several fiber art classes will be offered for those inspired by seeing the fiber art during the Straw Sculpting Competition activities and Artful Threads art show in the gallery. Those who signed up in the gallery during August will be contacted by phone or email with class details. If anyone else is interested in taking a class on weaving, making God’s Eyes or dying fibers for your fiber art projects, please contact Molly Baker, or Village Hall 815-734-6425 for details or to signup. The class schedule will also be published on the Encore! web site as soon as class details are finalized this week: Most classes will be held in the Old Sandstone gallery.

Encore! Mt. Morris is composed of volunteers committed to developing Mt. Morris, IL into a unique, thriving rural and cultural arts destination in northwest Illinois. Volunteers and donations are welcome. Learn more at
