Studio 407 has officially cut the ribbon and opened its doors to the public. On October 31, the studio and gallery held a ribbon cutting ceremony complete with cake and ice cream. 
Artists Tony Boettjer and Sherry Joubert were joined by members of the Jefferson County Art Guild, members of the public, and Fairbury Chamber of Commerce members for the event. 
Sherry and Tony expressed their gratitude toward the community for the successful first few weeks they have had for their classes, but they also encouraged the public to know that they also have pieces of art for sale. 
The next class will be held on November 10 at 2 p.m. Tony will be leading a class in painting a snowy night canvas. He said that the participant can have their choice of color and he will work with them to produce the best quality piece they are happy with taking home. 
The studio and gallery is open most days into the evening with either Tony or Sherry there. Located on Fairbury’s historical downtown area, the studio and gallery welcomes anyone through their door.
