The Art of Fine Furniture exhibit held at the Winona County History Center came to a close Sunday, August 11. The participation from the Winona community at this event was outstanding. The guest artists were impressed and amazed by the enthusiasm and sincere interest the attendees showed in their work. I want to say thanks to those who attended, and to all the sponsors who gave to help make the exhibit happen.
I want to give a special thank- you to the staff of visitwinona.com, who aggressively promoted this event as they do with all things Winona. This event was also made possible through grant support from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council (SEMAC) as well as the Winona Fine Arts Commission. Finally, I want to say thank you to the Winona County Historical Society and the great staff at the Winona County History Center for making this event a great success. I am excited to be part of the growing visual arts community in Winona and am looking forward to The Art of Fine Furniture exhibit in 2014. I hope to see you all there!
