40 North is thrilled to announce - Those Who Teach, Can - a new exhibition at 40 Point One art space, 1300 S. Neil St. (inside Consolidated Communications and across the street from Meatheads). Champaign Unit 4 Art Teachers are displaying their personal artworks in this annual exhibition from May 20th through August 11th.

The opening reception will take place on Saturday, May 20th, from 5-9 p.m. at 40 Point One.

A group of accomplished art teachers set out to dispel a common myth about the abilities of teachers with their show. The artwork, from Champaign Unit 4 School District Art Teachers, represents the diverse talents of its faculty, working in a range of media. These artists/teachers prove that they CAN with their creative, inspirational and thoughtful works of art.

Cunningham Children's Home Spiritual Life Center, 1301 N. Cunningham Avenue

Cunningham Children’s Home’s signature fundraiser, the Festival of Quilts, joins the Boneyard Arts Festival as one of more than 90 galleries showcasing the arts in Central Illinois. This year Cunningham is excited to present a collection of show quilts that creatively blur the lines between conventional quilt making and fine art. The 14th annual Festival of Quilts will also include a quilt auction and quilt boutique as well as a gift shop, bake sale and the Patchwork Café.

The Boneyard is a four-day event which brings together area businesses, organizations, and artists while promoting the cultural vibrancy of our community. As the Festival of Quilts has grown and the quilts submitted for viewing have evolved it became obvious to all who help with the event that many of our local artists are sharing their artwork through quilts.

This year’s Festival features two guest speakers. Friday at 11 a.m., Marie Samuel will present A Trunk Show of Eco-Art Collage Quilts. On Saturday at 11 a.m., Cynthia Cossu and Harris Gosselin, owners of Threads of Time in Danville, Ill., will present Threads and Needles and Machines. Oh My!

Event Cost: $5 donation
