Linn County Arts Guild will be celebrating our 11th year as a group and our 5th year as a gallery location this year. We are a dynamic group, constantly in flux. Many artists have come and gone over those years. We look forward to being a part of our community for years to come. Please take a moment to fill out a small survey and let us know what you think. We appreciate your feedback.
Thanks from your friends at the Linn County Arts Guild.
After a nice rest and a bit of rearrangement of the store, we are back up and running. Some artists were only here for the holidays. Look for them again come November. We said goodbye to our longtime friends Nemo Laine Art. They have promised to come back for classes and Meet the Artist events, so watch this space if you are a fan of their art. We also said goodbye to Kathy Jones and her beautiful stained glass and jewelry art, but not before buying up some of her pieces for personal enjoyment. We wish both of these artists well in their new endeavors.
What does this mean for the gallery? Well, for one, we have space. If you are an artist who has been wondering about showcasing your art in a public forum, come see us. We have a jury committee, but don’t be intimidated by that. We consider ourselves an approachable gallery and our store is a great place for you to get your start. Having a jury committee ensures that we don’t duplicate art that’s already in the store and that pieces are finished and ready for the buyer to hang or use immediately upon purchase. We are discussing some short term display options as well, so watch this space if that’s of interest to you.
Are you an artist who loves to teach? We have space for you. We have tables and chairs, a small classroom setting (or the ability to set up in the main gallery), and miscellaneous other items you might need to hold a small class. Inquire at the gallery if this might be something you are interested in.
Above all else, we want our community to know how much we appreciate your support. Whether it’s just a brief stop to appreciate our art, joining us for one of our fun art classes, a suggestion to a friend to stop in, a vote for a window display, or a decision to purchase one of our handmade items (which really warms our heart), we are so glad to have you as a part of our experience. Here’s to you!
See you at the gallery!
We would like to wish everyone a merry Christmas and a happy new year. Thank you for your patronage. We couldn’t do this without you.
We will be closed through the new year for some housekeeping and general rest and relaxation. We look forward to seeing what 2020 brings. We’ll see you again starting January 2nd.
Did you know that the Linn County Arts Guild Gifts and Gallery store began as a holiday store only? In 2009 the Linn County Arts Guild opened our first holiday store in downtown Lebanon. It was a temporary event at different downtown locations until we opened in our permanent location at 605 Main St. in April, 2015. However, we still operate a holiday store, where we invite local artists to display and sell their art in the months of November and December. That holiday store is currently open! Come on down and see us.
