It is not the forms and shapes that are most important to my work, or rather the shadows they cast, the color that resonates from a cherished experience, a piece of paper; strong but, as light as air; or a shard of stain glass cast aside from imperfects, but, prized for it's contribution in light to my overall image."

The first Holiday Market in the Historic Johnsonburg Community Center was full of energy with the different flow brought to them by the artists, historians and culinary experiences. This is a formula that is perfect for the building and the town with the 'Community House' having it all.
Pictured above is Colton Delong with his 'live art' piece featuring his ever flowing random styling paired with a designer sense of color, texture and movement.

The French Club of Johnsonburg Area High School will be conducting a fundraiser at Saturday's event to help with the cost of their trip to Quebec in April 2008. $5 will buy you a bowl of whole grain soup, home made bread, coffee and a dessert, which will really hit the spot on a crisp, fall day. Orders will also be taken for the packaged soups, which are all natural and whole grain. These soups make a perfect addition to any pantry and also a perfect Christmas gift. Plan to have your lunch on Saturday at the Historic Johnsonburg Community Center and help out the French Club, too.
Two foreign exchange students will be present at the community center on Saturday to talk about their country and culture. Sanja from Montenegro attends Kane Area High School, and Noman from Afghanistan attends Johnsonburg Area High School. Both students are in the United States through the organization American Councils for International Education,whose purpose is to promote international and cultural understanding through one on one exchanges with the youth of each country.
This is just the beginning of many wonderful happenings in the future with the The Town, Johnsonburg Community Center and Gallery!
Thank-you for all of your support!
