Quarry Hill features holiday art show

ROCHESTER, MN (FOX 47) -- Talented local artists gathered for the 5th Annual Art Show at Quarry Hill Nature Center in northeast Rochester this weekend.

The event is hosted by the South Eastern Minnesota Visual Artist. It gives local artists the opportunity to show off their work, and raise money for Quarry Hill.

Ten percent of the sales go toward the park.

The special event began five years ago when artists decided to give back to a place that has given them so much.
Sandy Hokanson, an organizer, says, "At that time Quarry Hill had a lot of funding problems, and we wanted to help them because we use the park for reference materials, and a lot of us come out here for inspiration because it's such a neat place."

Sunday afternoon, artists were painting on site, and a potter was making pots. The showcase also offered jewelry making, and photography.
