I’m a self-taught artist; constantly looking for new ways to express my creativity.  If you would like to know more and join this exhibit, please let us know and come by the gallery and pick up a plate to work on.  Originally photographing nature, a new interest involves creating, fun, joyful images directly from the computer.  Free and open to the public.  I’ve discovered through my photography that creating art brings me joy and I’m truly blessed to be able to do what I love.  The Arts in Bartlett Artist Group will meet on Tuesday, September 15, 7:00 – 9:00pm at the Arts Center Community Room , 215 S.  There’s a loose, free feel to the images because I use my non-dominant hand when painting them.

Sugar Grove Corn Boil 2014 will start July 25

Corn Boil 2014 festival

Sugar Grove Corn Boil 2014
July 25, 26, and 27, 2014…where friends and family come together to have fun!

Top 10 reasons to check out the Corn Boil

A very important responsibility of the Corn Boil is giving back to the community. The three-day event provides local groups and vendors an opportunity to raise funds via the large audience. In addition, after our annual event is done and our books are balanced, we are able to share our profit with local not-for-profit organizations, e.g. Between Friends Food Pantry, West Town Human Services Network, Sugar Grove Park District, the Township Senior Center, Big Rock Park District, and many other important organizations. Over the years, many organizations have hosted the Sugar Grove Corn Boil beginning with neighbors, then the Community Club, the Village of Sugar Grove, the Sugar Grove Chamber of Commerce, and since 2004, the volunteer run Sugar Grove Corn Boil, NFP.
