Art Festival is Saturday

-A A +A

The Cynthiana Arts Council and the Chamber of Commerce will be holding the 2013 Cynthiana Art Walk this Saturday, July 27, in downtown Cynthiana.  

The Art Walk is a celebration of many forms of art with visual artist displays in downtown businesses, a fashion show of garments made entirely from Post-it Notes, a varied collection of street performers, a poetry performance, and the always popular Songwriters’ Showcase.  

This year, the 3M Post-it Note & More Fashion Show will kick off the day’s activities at 3 p.m. at the historic Rohs Opera House.  

Seven teams have created garments for this year’s show.  

From the Post-it Note Fashion Show, festival-goers can stroll up and down Main and Pike streets to view the art of some of the area’s finest artists.    

After a leisurely stroll through downtown’s art displays, stop at the Pike Street street performer stage to enjoy some entertainment from some very talented musicians and singers.  From saxophonists to acoustic performers, sit back and take in the eclectic sounds of vocal artists of all types.  

At 6 p.m., return to the Rohs Opera House to sample some of the region’s best poets performing their works as they intended at the 2nd Annual MCTC-LVC Poetry Slam.  

Reading poetry is one way to enjoy it, but hearing it performed by the writer takes poetry to a whole new level.  

The evening will conclude with the Songwriters’ Showcase at the Chamber Building at 8 p.m.  

The perfect conclusion to the evening with the arts, the Songwriters Showcase is a standing-room-only event that should not be missed.  

Professional songwriters with a national following, come to Cynthiana to share not just their songs, but the stories behind their writing.

This year’s Art Walk looks to be one of the best. All activities at the Cynthiana Art Walk are free to all so come out and support local artists and the businesses that are hosting this event.  

 “Come downtown and enjoy a wonderful afternoon with family, friends, artists, and musicians,”  said Chamber director and event organizer, Pat Grenier.
