OSAGE — The application deadline for exhibitors in the third annual Cedar Arts Fest, which will showcase the works of Mitchell County and area artists, is fast approaching.

Deadline for application is Aug. 11. The arts festival will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 16, at the Leeman Education Center in Osage. The event, sponsored by the Fine Arts Council of Mitchell County, is held in conjunction with Autumn Artistry. The FACMC this year is partnering with the Cedar Valley Seminary, who operates the Leeman Center.

The event features both those artists who do not care to sell works, and vendors.
