JAQUES ANNUAL HARVEST DINNER
The Jaques Art Center will be holding its annual Harvest Dinner Fundraising event at the Long Lake Conservation Center this year with a Minnesota flare. We are excited to also host that night a concert by Minnesota’s singing troubadour, Charlie Maguire.
“Charlie Maguire is something of a legend in the midwest. He commands a respect far beyond his years with his stories and songs of the heartland of America and the people who live there.” – Winnipeg Folk Festival
Next Year our Theme for the Annual Juried Show will be 'Wondrous World' so that just about covers anything and everything doesn't it? So get started on your art! You have until next December to complete it - no excuses!
