Morgan County Area Arts Council has new leaders, list of activities
By JOHN LA PORTE, Times News EditorWednesday, September 17, 2008
The Morgan County Area Arts Council is looking forward to several projects under new leadership.
Pat Knight, longtime president of the group, is resigning after 13 years on the council board.
Knight said she needed to find something else she could have a passion about, like art.
Ann Iungerich is the interim president and Bonnie Lieder the secretary.
The council is planning a leadership drive, Iungerich and Lieder said, welcoming both old and new members. Dues are $10.
“Our goal is to promote art and artists and partner with people to promote them,” said Iungerich.
One of the projects is barn quilts, under the leadership of Nancy Lauck.
Plans call for introducing them to the Wiggins area; so far, there are 25 to 30 of the barn quilts in the county, and one is planned near Jackson Lake.
The group will have a booth at the Fall Harvest Car Show on Saturday with member signup sheets.
Also coming up are:
• The Holiday Far, an arts and crafts show Oct. 11 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Mark Arndt Events Center at the Morgan County Fairgrounds.
• The CU in the Community Series, starting with Atomic Vision Oct. 10 at 7 p.m. at Morgan Community College.
