"Artoberfest" Brings Awareness of the Arts in Quincy

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Face painting, ceramics, t-shirt screening, and graffiti art!

All of them were on display on Saturday at the Quincy Art Center's "Artoberfest" - their annual fundraiser for art programs in area schools.

Visitors could take in the latest gallery, and learned a little bit about how a raku - or special kiln - works.

Director Julie Nelson says many are surprised with everything the Quincy Art Center has to offer. "That they want to come back and visit again, and we've seen a lot of new people today and in the galleries too - so folks know that we're here, and come sign up for a class or a workshops, and you know - take part," she said.

The event also sold hand-crafted ceramic bowls by local artists, and the proceeds went to benefit the art center's programs.
