Third spring show set

Sunday, April 10, 2011

The third Celebration of the Arts and Soul Spring Show will take place Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Events will run from 6-9 p.m., Friday, and 1-8 p.m., Saturday, in addition to 1-6 p.m., Sunday. All events will take place at the Old Masonic Temple, 201 N. Walnut St., Brazil.

According to organizer Edie Richards, the event -- which also takes place in the fall -- has drawn a steadily increasing crowd.

"This is the sixth one (overall)," Richards said. "It's grown. We've had more response from local artists, which is great."

For example, Richards said local artists Bobbe and Jim Hammond will take part in the event. Jim creates bird feeders and birdhouses while Bobbe does a lot of glass work.

Friday events will begin with an opening night reception and music from 7:30-8:30 p.m. Artists and vendors will be set up as well, with several items available for purchase.

New to the show this year is the "Spring Into A Masterpiece," event, scheduled for Saturday.

Richards said artists and craftspeople will have the opportunity to trek around Brazil looking for inspiration to create a new piece of art.

An open discussion regarding the new art will take place at 6:30 p.m.

"We're trying to get everyone involved as much as possible," Richards said.

Another new item taking place this year will begin at 2 p.m., Saturday.

Richards said Handwriting analyst Theresa Ortega will be on hand to present, "Do You Write Like A Millionaire? If Not, I Can Teach You How."

As well, a drum making workshop featuring Tony Showa will take place at 4 p.m., Saturday.

A demonstration on pet massage will take place Sunday, at 2 p.m., followed by a presentation from SPIRIT on ghost hunting experiences.

Richards said admission to the event is free, but freewill items, including paper towels, bleach, newspapers, aluminum cans, kitty litter, cat food, dog food, toys, beds and treats will be accepted. All donated items will be given to the Clay County Humane Shelter.

A silent auction will also take place all three days.
