The Northfield Arts Guild is pleased to announce that the recent You Make Our Light Shine event secured funds that were above and beyond our expectation, exceeding our $50,000 goal by over $20,000 dollars! We are so grateful to our committed and engaged community for this outstanding show of support. The Guild is able to work toward its mission to inspire, connect, and grow because of your generosity.
We are eagerly and gingerly planning a more robust opening of all Guild activities as we continue to navigate Minnesota COVID-19 guidelines, and we are looking forward to adding new and additional staff back into our operations. Your gifts will fully sponsor and make those things possible. With that, we are poised and ready to serve our community with art-making, education, and engagement for all.
Please stop by the Guild and visit our gift shop and galleries. The Northfield High School Honors Art show, Uncover the Beauty, continues in the Main Gallery and the Up Gallery is newly adorned with A Garden Seen, gouache paintings by our own Jennie Autonoë. Our summer classes are listed on our website and we are looking forward to gathering for in-person learning again soon.
The virtual fundraising event was loaded with local talent, entertaining acts, and heartfelt testimonials from all across our community and beyond. If you would still like to watch the virtual event and/or make a gift to the Guild, please visit this webpage for access at any time.
You really do make our light shine in so many ways. Your time, your talent, and your resources sustain us daily. Thank you for giving.
