The Fort Wayne Artists Guild would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the participants in our Kekionga Plein Air Event in conjunction with the Taste of the Arts Festival in Fort Wayne. We had a great time with 55 registrants painting in Allen County. We were featured on the front page of the Journal Gazette on Friday and the front page of the metro section on Sunday. It was a beautiful three days of painting. Thank you again for joining us.
