The Buchanan Center for the Arts

The West Central Illinois Arts Center in Macomb asked art collectors to contribute a piece for display in its new exhibit. The artwork is accompanied by short narratives that explain its significance to the owner.

The show is called A Few Of Our Favorite Things. More than 30 works are exhibited. They will remain on display through the end of July.

The show includes oil paintings, watercolors, a piece of fiber art and more. The stories explaining why art lovers bought the pieces are as varied as art itself.
