“Quoting a friend of mine, Charlotte Jensen, ‘Anytime someone says something good about my paintings I thank the good Lord for the ability to bring a smile or evoke a memory for someone.’ I feel that way also. Excitement defines the emotion I feel when a white canvas evolves into a painting. I am thrilled when someone buys a painting and that painting shares a place in their home.”

Congratulations to these Winners of the Reinbeck Art Festival Drawings!

Standard

The 3rd Annual Reinbeck Art Festival on Saturday, September 27, drew people from all over Iowa. The weather cooperated, and for the first time artists were able to set up outside as well as inside. A few lucky art patrons were winners of art donated for the doorprize event and the Facebook drawing. Congratulations to these winners: John Kelsey of Gladbrook won watercolor painting “Winter Wonder” by Marion Boyer. Lisa Anderson of Reinbeck won watercolor painting “Hummingbird” by Joyce Wild. The winner of the Facebook contest was Royce Hickie of Marshalltown. She won “Pinwheel” a letterpress print by Julie Russell-Steuart. All the artists are volunteers with the Reinbeck Art Festival.

The Details on the 2014 Reinbeck Art Festival

Reinbeck Art Festival 2014 Poster
Standard

In it’s third year, the Reinbeck Art Festival has proven to be a fun, “down-home” event, with local and regional artists showcasing their expertise in a variety of mediums.

This juried festival will feature thirty-two artists, live music, door prizes, and children’s art activities. New this year is an art activity for grownups, a community painting. Participants paint one panel of a design that will make up the total image, which is Van Gogh’s “Irises.” The panels are ready for painting, so it’s a great way for anyone to “get their paint on.” The event and all activities are free to the public.
The event will be Saturday, September 27, 2014, from 9am-4pm. Outside booth locations will be on Main
Street down to the corner of Broad and Main Streets and up Broad Street to the Memorial Building at 208 Broad
Street, where the inside artist vendors are located. In the case of inclement weather, the rain location is the
United Church of Christ directly across from the Memorial Building.

Festival Chairperson Julie Russell-Steuart says, “It’s actually unusual for an art festival to offer a rain location. We like to take care of our artists and patrons who come expecting to have a great day.” She adds, “Many artists complimented us last year on how well they were treated!”

Community members were also very pleased to have a wonderful event that encourages so much creativity.
The children’s art activities this year are: Eric Carle Art Project, Ceramic Tile Decorating, Doodle Art, and Clay
Creations. Musicians playing will be: The eNablers, Chris Draffen, Aaron MacNally, Kirk Eastman, and Sugar &
Spice. A special CD compilation from UNI New Horizons Band will also play.

Local restuarants with specials plan to cater to festival patrons, and other downtown businesses will be open.
Becktoberfest at Broad Street Brewing Company will also be taking place in Reinbeck the same day. Check back here for highlights of our business donors.
The Reinbeck Art Festival is supported in part by a grant from the Grundy County Community Foundation -
General Fund, an affiliate of the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa.

Welcome to our new site

Standard

It’s 2014 and we are excited to be planning the third annual art festival in Reinbeck, Iowa.

If you are an artist interested in spending the day with us and having a fine time showing and selling your work to an appreciative audience, you can find our online application here. (this site is being developed and the application will be available mid-February)

Some comments on the experience from artists last year:

“Very friendly community, well-organized event. I would definitely come back!”

“Loved the live music!”
