And a good time was had by all

Numbers tell some of the story of the 2015 Aurora Colony Days Art Show.  55 artists from 18 locales submitting175 works of art.  There were 42 watercolor paintings — 25 acrylics — 25 oils — 23 photographs — 60 mixed and almost every other medium.  13 of the artists — 24% — with sales of their work.  50 volunteers to plan, set up/take down, cook, staff, entertain and more.  An estimated 500 people visiting the show, from the Friday evening reception through late Sunday afternoon.  40 children taking part in our week-long, first-ever art camp and Sunday printmaking workshop.  In another first, 15 “plein air” artists painting and sketching at the Museum and on streets filled with Colony Days celebrants.

But the larger story is one of community.  Aurorans and honorary Aurorans came together to  work, to celebrate and to appreciate each other, in this art show and in all the other Colony Days festivities.  Thank you.
