Fine arts fair this weekend

The Batesville Regional Fine Arts Fair, slated for March 7-9 at RomWeber Marketplace, boasts a new Children’s Craft Corner. The show, sponsored by the Ripley County Tourism Bureau, kicks off Friday evening with a 7-9 p.m. preview night that benefits Rural Alliance for the Arts. The cost is $10 at the door, which includes a glass of wine and hors d’oeuvres. The show continues Saturday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. with no admission charge.

The Children’s Craft Corner will feature three art projects that kids can do and take home for $5 each. Tri-State Artisans will help them create unique painted freestyle pieces, Clayworks Pottery, Indianapolis, will work with the children on pottery pieces and small birdhouses will be available to paint.

This year’s Artists’ Project is birdhouses. Over 20 local artists will show off their skills decorating the tiny houses, creating one-of-a-kind pieces that will be sold throughout the weekend. Last year’s project featured painted Adirondack chairs, which were judged and sold to support this year’s show. Some will be available this weekend for those who didn’t get one last year.

“We have watercolor artists, glass etching artists, wood turners, jewelry makers, stained glass artists, and a variety of other forms of art that will be on display and for sale during the show, “ notes Katherine Taul, Ripley County Tourism Bureau director. “Some will be doing demonstrations throughout the weekend, including Seth Bickis, who creates beautiful pendants in front of an audience. We are so pleased with the quality of artists who are drawn to our show. It’s a fun, creative weekend, and I hope everyone comes out to support the artists and enjoy their talents.”

Also new to the show, Chainsaws for Charity will be set up outside, where workers will create unique items out of wood. The items will be auctioned, with donations to Safe Passage, Chainsaws charities, and to support the 2015 art show. Weather permitting, Batesville Car Club members will display their automobile restoration talents outside.
