The Marion County Arts and Humanities Council met Tuesday, July 8, at the Farm Bureau conference room.  The main topic on the agenda was the Arts camp, which began Monday, July 14.
We are so pleased to have each class full of eager students.  And we have several sponsors, to whom letters of thanks have been mailed along with an invitation to join us for the finale program at Lebanon Elementary School on Friday evening at 5 p.m. The culinary class will delight us with their food projects, art work will be displayed, and the young musicians will entertain.
Our next event will be getting artists to set up displays at The Heritage Center for Ham Days. With this display will be items for our annual art auction.
This year, we are planning an “event” for the art auction, with a tentative date set for Nov. 1, at Centre Square. We will be teaming with Kentucky Classic Theater to take you back to the 50s era – a little “retro” for your entertainment.  We are hoping many patrons will dress in period costume – not mandatory, just for fun.  So stay tuned as the plans are unveiled for this exciting event.
The only other item discussed at our meeting was the purchase of folding chairs for the art gallery at the Heritage Center, where we are having “open studio” each Monday evening. If anyone is interested in joining us for painting, laughter and conversation, you are welcome.
