The Buchanan Center for the Arts is embarking on a search for a new Executive Director.
Monmouth, Illinois is the home of the BCA, serving all of Warren County and surrounding counties in west central Illinois and Iowa.
This progressive community understands and embraces the arts as an important component in our lives.
Local artist Mary Schuytema is proud to bring us her brand new Spirit Houses.
Every spirit house starts out by being thrown on the wheel from stoneware or porcelain clay. From there, the forms are altered. Hand built additions are added, and most are equipped with a small twig ladder. These “spirit” houses have evolved over the years to include windows, curtains, birds, nests, copper patches on the roof, copper wire and even leather. The traditional glazes are joined with oil and acrylic paints and stains.
Get ready to say "Cheese"! The Annual Security Savings Bank Photo Competition is ready to begin.
