The artists who participated in the Plein Air Event on April 24 will be showing their artwork at The Public Library for Union County from June 1, 2016 through June 30, 2016.

The opening reception for the show will be on June 2nd at The Public Library for Union County from 6pm – 8pm in Gallery 255. You are invited to join the artists, representatives of the Linn Conservancy and Lewisburg Arts Council members in celebrating these preserved lands and our local artists. If you can’t come to the reception June 2nd, please stop by the Library to see the wonderful artwork (which is for sale!!)
