Art and Soul on the Fox 2011
The 3rd Annual Art and Soul on the Fox festival will be held this weekend on South Grove Avenue in downtown Elgin from 11am to 6pm Saturday and til 5pm Sunday.
Prices for art at the festival range from $5 to several thousand; Kaptain said there is something for everyone, including but not limited to watercolor, oil and pastel paintings.
Just like in years past, all the art has been selected by a jury and may be rewarded. The event will hand out $1,000 in cash awards; the Elgin Cultural Arts Commission, an organizer of the event, will award an additional $2,000 in purchase awards.
Another highlight of the festival will be the Thrones of Summer public auction…
Food and drink vendors, musical entertainment and kids activities will all be available. Kaptain said this year’s festivities look to be better than before.
