The Tarble Arts Center invited members and nonmembers to participate in this semester’s Tarble Trip for a tasting tour in southern Illinois.

The excursion group will leave 7:30 a.m. on Saturday from Tarble. It will return by 9:30 p.m. the same day.

From Tarble, the group will travel to the Cedarhurst Center for the Arts in Mount Vernon and be able to take guided tours of quilt exhibits on display or see the Goldman-Kuenz Sculpture Park. After the tours, everyone will be able to freely explore the museum.

From Mount Vernon, the group will travel south into wine country to Makanda. There, participants can sample wine at Blue Sky Vineyards and attend Colorfest. Colorfest is an annual festival celebrating harvest season featuring local music, artists and food.
