Art show and new band open festival

BATESVILLE — Save these dates!

On its 40th anniversary, art will have a greater emphasis at the Batesville Music and Arts Festival.

The Rural Alliance for the Arts Community Art Show will kick off the three-day event Wednesday, June 19. All original works created by area artists can be viewed from 7-8 p.m. in the Community Church building at the southeast intersection of Main and George streets and winners will be announced, said RAA administrator and BMAF committee member Joan Kuhlman.

Following the unveiling of an RAA mural at the 2012 fest, board members decided to repeat a downtown event “because it was so successful last year,” reports President Leacarol Bennett.

With the street blocked to vehicles, attendees will be able to wander from the art show to a concert by The Tides in the parking lot across the street from 8-10 p.m. The Batesville Memorial Public Library is sponsoring the “island pop” Indianapolis band as part of its After Hours Concert Series. “Bring your lawn chairs,” suggests library director Mike Kruse.

Area residents should attend “because there’s going to be food, music, art and just a good time!” promises Bennett.

The June 20-21 programs start at 8 p.m. at Liberty Park.

On Thursday, the Cincinnati Symphony Regional Pops Orchestra will enthrall the crowd with a soothing variety of pieces.

On Friday, the traditional Texaco Country Showdown presented by Batesville radio station WRBI and Jim True Ford, Brookville, wraps up the fest. The local winner of this 32nd round of America’s largest country music talent search advances to the  state fair competition with the possibility of moving to regional and national contests with big cash prizes.

The Kiwanis Club of Batesville will be selling dinners and snacks both evenings at the park.
