Rollingstone Days are August 2-4 (07/28/2013)
On Saturday, August 3, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. and on Sunday, August 4, the museum at 98 Main Street in Rollingstone will be featuring an art show honoring local artists Tina Gile and Gary Spencer . Tina will be exhibiting a number of her paintings, including one of the Marian statue from Luxembourg which was donated to the parish in August 1993, and a recent painting of the Statue of Liberty. She has also completed the restoration of the Pieta Statue which was formerly in the Holy Trinity Church at Rollingstone. Gary will be showing a number of paintings including a picture of the present museum building before the restoration project started in 1992. The museum, which is the first Luxembourg museum in the U.S. , houses over one thousand acquisitions from Luxembourg and many more from local donors. These include a number of additional paintings by artists from Europe and America. The museum building was constructed in 1900 as the city hall, fire station, and jail. At first the museum project, which started in 1987, used rented space in the building until the purchase in 1992. It t is a 501(c) 3 non profit corporation registered with the State of Minnesota. Membership is welcomed from any interested person or family. Rollingstone was settled initially by over 90% of immigrants from the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, but today only about half of the citizens claim ancestry from Luxembourg. However, frequent individuals and tours come from Luxembourg, and a chorale group from there will be presenting a concert on August 12 at 7 p.m. in the chapel of the former St.Teresa College in Winona. On September 7 and 8 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. the work of John and Julie Kalmes will be featured , and on September 14 and 15 the paintings of local artist Rhonda Schell will be featured. For additional information or appointments daytime or evening call 689-2307 or 689-2096. The Treasured Recipes cookbook is available for purchase as well as magnets and other items. Admission is free of charge.
