The Eagle’s Nest Art Group began in 1957 and continues to support the work of local artists with art shows, programs and classes.  Their studio is located on the second floor of Conover Square Mall, and the group welcomes all who are art-minded to participate in its full schedule of programs and art show opportunities.  Whether you are an experienced artist or a beginner or just interested in art, you will fit into this low-key, friendly group.

A variety of media are represented by many art forms, including oil, acrylic, watercolor, calligraphy, pencil, photography, fiber art and stained glass.  The group welcomes all forms of art.

Their offerings include art demonstrations, workshops, classes and visits to art related sites such as local galleries, foundries and museums.  During each spring, the group has a membership art show, and member art is also available for show and sale during Oregon’s Autumn on Parade Festival the first weekend of October.

A small group works in the studio most Thursdays throughout the year, from 11am to 3pm, as well as meeting outdoors during the summer months.

Membership for the year is $5, due each September.  If you are interested in learning more about the group or its offerings, call 815-732-7783.  They are happy to send out program information and membership forms to anyone who is interested.
