It was show time for the Fine Arts League 25th Annual Fiesta Art Show.

The event started this last Friday and continued through Saturday, Oct. 1, 2016 at the Heritage Hall - 400 W. College.

The show included Refreshments and a raffle and of course featured some of the finest art ever displayed.  Proceeds from the preview will be used to help fund the 2017 Coleman Co. School Student scholarship.

The Fine arts league of Coleman county was organized in 1991 with shows held annually . There have been open, membership & juried shows since.
