Carefully placed overlooking Quinsippi Bay, the rustic structures of Quincy’s Log Cabin Village chronicle the life of early area settlers. A wild and untamed frontier attracted visionaries and the county began to grow. Part of the charm, the simple design of the Lincoln-era log cabins invokes the optimistic pioneer spirit; out of humble beginnings through our own determination there is possible greatness.
Quincy Artists Guild members will display their artwork from August 12th through the 19th at the Cheryl Loatsch Studio, 334 South 48th, Quincy, IL. Regular viewing hours will be from 10 am-4 pm. Monday through Friday, 10 am-2 pm on Saturdays (closed on Sunday). The exhibition is free and open to the public.

During the year the Guild members share with each other new techniques and demonstrations. There are over 200 pieces of art submitted along with handmade jewelry, greeting cards and bookmarks. New this year is a “cash and carry” option.
