PRINCETON — The Prairie Arts Council will open its 2014 exhibit season with a group exhibit featuring pieces of art from collections of members of the Prairie Arts Council.

The Prairie Arts Council currently has more than 160 members who support the mission of the Arts Council by their annual membership support.

“We are excited to announce something a little different than what you normally see at the Prairie Arts Center’s gallery exhibits,” said Melody Best, director of the gallery at the Arts Center. “All members of the Prairie Arts Council are invited to share up to two pieces of their favorite art work. It could be a painting, a sculpture, photograph or even a child’s drawing.”

Each piece will be accompanied by a note on how it was acquired by the collector. All pieces of art will be on view during the month of February.

Any member of the Prairie Arts Council is invited to participate in this exhibit. The Arts Center will be open from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday to receive works of art for this exhibit.

The opening reception for this exhibit will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Feb. 7. The exhibit will run through Feb. 28. This event is open and free to the public. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to noon on Wednesdays, and 1 to 4 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

If you would like to become a member of the Prairie Arts Council, call 815-875-2787 or visit their website at theprairieartscouncil.org for a membership form. Any questions regarding the exhibit should be directed to Melody Best at 203-522-6805.
