Local artists featured at Cabin Fever Art Show and Sale this Sunday

By Elizabeth Sias

This Sunday, Cambridge Center for the Arts (CCFA) presents an opportunity to bring local artists and those who appreciate art together.

The Cabin Fever Art Show and Sale will be held at Mill Ridge Terrace on the GracePointe campus, 235 Fern St. North, on Sunday, Feb. 26, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“The goal is to make art accessible to all in the community,” Cambridge Center for the Arts Executive Director Susan Jacobus said. “It’s open to local artists, and it’s a good opportunity for people to come to a nice event and see the work that artists are doing in the local community.”

The local artists will be present to show and sell their work at the event, which is free and open to the public. A harpist will play for background music along with keyboards, and GracePointe Crossing will provide light refreshments and snacks.

The art show will be in the style of an open house, Jacobus said. She and GracePointe Crossing Community Relations Director Julie Tooker came up with the idea after local artists expressed in monthly meetings that one of the things they wanted from an art center was an opportunity to show their work.

“I think art is always important in our lives,” Jacobus said. “It’s important to see art directly in our community, making it accessible in our community and supporting local artists.”

The artists on Sunday will range from photographers to painters and potters to a fiber artist and a collage artist. The artists signed up to show work so far include Marilyn Cuellar, Wendy Wazzut Barret, Patricia Wagner, Linda Bergerson, Sharon Nelson, Jodie Briggs, Dave Knapp, George and Vonda Oaks (Triple J Creations), Barb Weidendorf, Shelley Odendahl, and Bill and Linda Sumner.

CCFA is still allowing people to sign up to show work at the show. If any artists are interested in signing up to show their work, contact CCFA at 763-691-9679.
