Decatur Arts Festival 2013 Wraps

decatur-arts-festival-2013-webThe Decatur Arts Festival 2013 wrapped with the Last Call event at the Fine Arts Exhibition on June 2. The event was, as always, a great sendoff. Judy Parady, working with the Decatur Arts Alliance, invited a diverse selection of artists to talk about their work to an appreciative audience of arts supporters. The speakers included Best in Show collage artist Cynthia Frigon, photographer Elyse Defoor, painter John Cargile, encaustic artist Helen DeRamus, and woodturner John Madajewski.
