The 3rd Annual Kaneland Community Fine Arts Festival Juried Art Show runs from April 1st – April 30th at the Sugar Grove Public Library during regular library hours. The Festival has partnered with the library for a second year, because the library is an outstanding space in which to showcase art and they are a part of the Kaneland Community. It is one way the Festival tries to unite the many communities of Kaneland by working with the many public and visual entities within the school's boundary.
The reception and awards ceremony for the juried art show is on Thursday, April 14th at 6:30 pm at the library. The show displays over 50 works of art from 18 artists. Returning to the show are artists such as Philip Soosloff (Rockford College art teacher) as well as Teresa Baber who does infrared photography. Mary-Glynn Boies is an oil painter and a Sycamore native. Her painting subjects are usually of children. A new artist to the show is Greta Bell from Batavia. She is an oil painter whose work is whimsical with lots of color.
The Sugar Grove Public Library is located at 125 S. Municipal Drive in Sugar Grove and is open from Tuesday – Thursday from 9am – 9pm and Friday – Saturday from 9am – 1pm.
