- Welcome to the League Of Arts - Log Cabin 

 

A little about our organization and it's inception to present day - - - -

 

THE START

 

From the 1960's to the early 1970's, a small group of artists and craft persons formed an organization called the "Country Arts and Crafts". This group met monthly at the studio of artist Marilyn Rea located, at that time, in Burrell Township, Armstrong County, PA. The members were from surrounding townships of Armstrong and Westmoreland. In 1974, the group disbanded and allocated its treasury monies for the formation and incorporation of the present day organization known as the "Armstrong County League of Arts".

 

The new organization was initially formed and guided by a Board of Directors consisting of four couples which drafted the by-laws and were then legally completed by an attorney as a non-profit incorporation. Ford Cliff Elementary School in Ford City, PA. became the Arts Center for the first five years of incorporation. In 1974, William Rea donated the land which the League of Arts is now located on. Carl and Marilyn Rea sold their home and financed  building the present League of Arts building. Carl and Marilyn built their private home adjacent to the Log Art Center.

 

The promotion of "arts, crafts and music" is the goal of the organization.

 

THE PRESENT

 

The Armstrong County League of Arts Log Center is located on approximately 7 acres of  land

donated by William Rea in 1974 and continues to promote arts, crafts and music for it's members and the community.

 

Governed by a Board of Directors, the Arts Council meets only when events are scheduled.

This may be an art or craft special presentation, festival show or a specially requested class. Members are notified by mail or in the bi-annual newsletter of such events. 

 

Classes are held when an interest is voiced. Through the years, classes in painting, drawing, various types of crafts and music have been held.  Arts weekends have consisted of art shows and contests, music competitions (both indoor and outdoor), music and dance presentations, craft shows, antique car shows and music concerts.
