2016’s ArtoberFest was amazing. Despite the huge storm, we had a good turnout – fewer people than usual but folks were serious about enjoying the art and buying. Visitors included folks from both Portland and Eugene who came down specifically for ArtoberFest. It was great to have artists in the juried show from Klamath Falls, Ashland, Medford, Jacksonville, Rogue River, Grants Pass, Brookings and Crescent City join the Illinois Valley artists. And, we now have six new members as a result of the show.
ArtoberFest 2016 was made possible by the participation of Kerby merchants – Yanase Jewelers, Its a Burl, Kerbyville Farm, and Kerbyville Museum – and the generous support of our event sponsors – Fire Mountain Gems, Evergreen Bank, Eye Care Group, Oregon Caves Chevron, Carlos Restaurante, Forest Edge Farm, IV Wellness Resources, and Out ‘n About Treesort. In-kind support came from Treehouse Florist, Coffee Heaven, Wendy Huber Design, Central Art Supply, Major Art Framing, and Guild members.
