October To Be A Busy Month at the OCG!

The Owl Project: An Art Exhibit sponsored by the Owl Creek Gazette will be held at Adam Bros Coffeehouse, at 110 South Second Street in downtown Greenville, IL and will be open to the public (free of charge) from Thursday evening, October 11th (at 7pm) through Saturday afternoon, October 13th (until 2pm). The project is inspired by this year's OCG Autumn Dinner theme featuring Louisa May Alcott and her ever-popular book, Little Women (with a nod to the owl paintings her sister, May, painted for her).
The Owl Project Art Exhibit is seeking artwork with an owl theme including paintings, photographs, needlework, sculptures, and other mediums. There are two categories for entries: 1) A Teen Division (ages 13-19) and 2) an Adult Division (20 and up). To have artwork shown in the exhibit, there is an exhibitor's fee of $5 (which permits up to 3 entries per person). Entry is not limited to individuals in a particular geographic location, but instead is open to anyone who is able to submit their artwork in person the week prior to the event (entry dates/time to be announced) and meet the additional criteria described above. Prizes will be awarded (and are TBA as well).

Join us for our 5th Annual Owl Creek Gazette Autumn Dinner on Saturday, October 13th from 6pm-8:30pn at Adam Bros Coffeehouse, 110 S. Second St. in downtown Greenville, IL This Year’s Dinner Theme is Louisa May Alcott with our menu inspired by meals featured in Alcott’s book, Little Women.
