Old Business

Fair awards provided by Jackson County Arts went to Rosalie Wilkerson, Jacob Thornburg, Kathleen Cobb, and Kelsie Matousek.

New Business

Fall Fest is Saturday October 8th. We briefly discussed the scarecrow contest but have not heard details yet. David will need help the day before to get tables set up at the Courthouse for the Art show. We will use tables and easels for display and decided to keep the guidelines the same as our Glory Days Show: must be or become a member of Jackson County Arts to show up to two pieces of Art.

Show and Tell

Kathleen and David both showed acrylic landscape paintings. Sarah showed some mixed media work. Mary showed a watercolor painting. Nelson showed some graphic design projects and sang a song.


Katie presented a program on Altered Books. She showed an altered book that she finished and showed at the fair in Open Class and shared other ideas and techniques with the group. You can view examples of Altered Books on Katie’s Pinterest board:
