On the first Saturday in June, you can celebrate the works of more than 85 artists at 17 venues in St. Charles, Geneva, Batavia and Aurora at a collaborative event called the Fox River Arts Ramble.
“The public is invited to ‘ramble’ through these communities to enjoy and experience the abundance of talent we possess right here in our own back yard,” said Kathryn Hill, executive director of the St. Charles Arts Council. “I’m thrilled with the participation level and excitement that our area artists bring to the table!”
The event takes place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 5, at all 17 locations.
The Arts Ramble is a collaborative effort among Fine Line Creative Arts Center, the St. Charles Arts Council and Water Street Studio and was created to make artists and their studios/galleries accessible to the public.

The St. Charles Arts Council will host artists at Kava Diem Coffee Shop and will host an artist reception from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. The public is welcome to attend.
