The 32nd Riverssance Festival of Fine Arts will have over ninety artist’s booths, including many new exhibitors. Stroll, shop, enjoy wine tasting with Tabor Home Winery and artist-painted wine glasses. There are great food options from Lagomarcino’s, Streets of Italy Wood Fired Pizza and Pete’s Concessions. A Children’s Activity tent is available, staffed by volunteers from Rivermont Collegiate. Local musicians performing include: (Saturday) Whoozdads, Barley House Band, and David G. Smith; (Sunday) Lojo Russo, Songbird Quartet, and Lewis Knudsen.

New this year, a series of artists will be demonstrating their work in or near the food tent. At time of print, the line-up is: (Saturday) collaborative sculpture by Steve Banks, Heidi Hernandez and Terry Rathje; ceramics with Carolyn Krueger; (Sunday) dinosaur drawing by Josh Malone; printing with Karen Blomme, hotwire Styrofoam sculpture by David Schaeffer.

Again this year with grant funds, we are providing tickets distributed in advance to area social agencies, and admission will be free to everyone as of 3 p.m. on Sunday. Organized and run by art enthusiasts, Riverssance continues to be recognized for its careful attention to artists’ success, community partnerships, beautiful location, and a fun weekend.
