QUINCY (WGEM) - The Quincy Art Center welcomed area artists in a local showcase.
The showcase highlighted works of artists within a 50-mile radius of Quincy.
Artists 18 and over could enter with up to three works for a short fee.
“I love this event, and this exhibit because it brings together all of our local artists and the community. It connects those artists to our community,” said Quincy Art Center Executive Director Jennifer Teter. “Its just wonderful to see that interaction. Its just a wonderful exhibit to come and enjoy and talk to the artists. Just experience it on their own when there is an opening.”
