Art Share

Thursday | 6:00 – 8:30 pm | Chestnut Center for the Arts 

Gather | Create | Collaborate – A free social event for artists, crafters, and anyone who wants to be creative. No experience is necessary. Art Share is a gathering for adult working artists, crafters, and creative beginners. Participants can bring materials and tools from home to work on a project. Don’t have anything to work on? That’s ok! We’ll provide some basic supplies to begin your creative journey. Learn new techniques, explore new mediums, ask for critique/feedback, share supplies, knowledge, and just in general; network, collaborate and make friendships. Art Share is FREE for our creative community, but donations are appreciated.

Bees and Bugs Storytime

Friday | 10 am | Wildwood Park & Zoo

These stories with Miss Sara will be all the buzz in the park!

Art on the Patio

Friday | 4-8 pm | Electrocuted Wood

Watch some Art in Action: You can watch artists do what they do best, painting, drawing, etc. Each evening could be different. Shop with Local Artisans. Artisans will be bringing a small sampling of what they make and create. Some artists may offer custom services to have a piece either made onsite or to pick up later. Stay awhile and play some yard games or board games on any empty tabletop.

Hub City Concert Series – Marielle Kraft

Friday | 7 pm | Wenzel Family Plaza

When you hear Marielle Kraft’s music or experience her candid live shows, you feel as though you already know her. The indie pop singer/songwriter, now based in Nashville, displays craftsmanship beyond her years, following suit to artists like Shawn Mendes, Maisie Peters, and Taylor Swift. Self-taught, the Rhode Island native began playing guitar at 16 and soon writing songs that strike chords with listeners everywhere. Her gift for storytelling is evident through her use of salient detail, raw emotion, and poignant word choice to describe moments “exactly as they feel.”
