The Mount Vernon-Lisbon Sun reports that 32 artists will be featured at the free Lincoln Highway Arts Festival, 9 am – 4 pm on Saturday, Sept. 27, in Mount Vernon, Iowa.
Galen Lacey, a member of the Mount Vernon Area Arts Council, says that the offerings will include oil paint, acrylics, sculpture, wood, fiber, pottery, and jewelry. “This is not a craft show. It’s a wonderful opportunity to expose people to art who would not ordinarily go into an art gallery.” Paul Imholte of St. Cloud, Minn., will perform on dulcimer and other stringed instruments while strolling through the event. Food vendors will include the United Methodist Church, a kettle corn stand, and Vernon Inn-The Greek Place of Cedar Rapids. Events will be on First Street on the two blocks west of Hwy. 1 with artists set up in tents.
