With 25 trees on display, guests found a particular tree to appeal to their tastes at the Janice Mason Art Museum’s seventh annual Festival of Trees. Trees presented by the Trigg County Quilters’ Guild and American Cancer Society Relay For Life remained popular with many visitors to the museum.

“It started originally at the bank before we had this space,” said Museum President Jean Martin. “I don’t really have a favorite tree, but I always love the quilters.”

“I like the purple one in there,” said Harvey Grasser, referring to the Relay tree. “That’s my favorite, but they are all nice. People took a lot of time to come in and decorate their trees. I think it is a plus for this town to put it in this building and have something to look at.”

Linda Horner visited Cadiz and the Janice Mason Museum from Cape May, New Jersey. “The trees are lovely and the museum is lovely. I am so happy Cadiz has this museum. Downtown has been transformed in the past 10 years, and I think it is wonderful. The museum is a real addition to town. Art is always good.”

Horner said that her favorite tree was assembled from canned goods by the Helping Hands Food Bank. “It’s thinking outside the box, but also symbolizes what is special about the holiday season-the giving aspect. It also looks really cool.”
