Erik and Emily brewing up some fun at Spookwalk 2020
End of October updates
It's been a fun month at the Arts Center. Our October show with Traci Utley's Mosaic Quilts has been fun to look at. If you are a quilt fan and haven't checked it out yet you still have a chance on Wed November 4th if you get here at 1pm sharp!
Our next exhibit will be paintings of wildflowers of the upper Midwest by Lydia E. Curtis. We will have our live stream on facebook on Friday the 6th at 5pm cst. Brew up some herbal tea and join us!
New addition to the permanent collection
I am very pleased to announce that the Arts Center has purchased our annual addition to the permanent collection. We have chosen a piece from our September show by Anastasia Chloe.

After gazing into this mirror for a month we decided to give it a forever home here where the artist has spent so much time. Thanks to donations to the Memorial Fund we can continue to increase our Collection of fantastic art.
Not much about this year has been "normal", and the annual Charles City Spookwalk underwent some changes. The inverted parade was a great solution with businesses and community organizations decorating along Jackson St., and the Trick or Treaters being driven by. Being located on Jackson we had home field advantage(and bathrooms). The two hours of fun, and the week leading up to it, was just what I needed to get into the Halloween spirit. Thanks to Julie and Noah for joining us in some good times!
We even managed to win "Best Non Profit" in the decorating contest!
November and beyond is shaping up to be a busy month. Here are a few things we are working on besides the regular exhibits.
