It's time for a bit of creating and enjoying our wonderful fall atmosphere.
The Linton Fall Arts Festival is Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in downtown Linton.
The Carnegie Heritage & Arts Center of Greene County will be open with a new Fall Arts Show, 20 booths of arts vendors lining the streets, a chili cook off and a chance to create your own personal sculpture to take home from the Traveling Foundry Sculpture Pour.
In the back yard of the Carnegie the Traveling Foundry of the Sculpture Trails will be creating a relief sculpture mural that locals can have a hand in carving and then will be poured and finished the day of the festival. Don't miss the chance to tell your grandkids years down the road you helped create this lasting work of art.
The finished sculpture will be given to the city of Linton. The Foundry is still accepting donations, which can be made at http://www.sculpturetrails.com/donations/ .
Also available the day of the festival is an opportunity to carve your own individual block which will be poured and made into a sculpture that can then be taken home.
The Traveling Foundry is part of the Sculpture Trails Outdoor Museum located deep in the woods in the hills near Solsberry. Being a 501-C3 non-profit, it is their mission to bring outdoor sculpture and art education to the community through hands-on workshops such as the aluminum pour scheduled for this weekend in Linton.
Founded in 2002, Sculpture Trails Outdoor Museum in Solsberry has on display over 60 large-scale sculptures by artists from around the world, so plan a day to make the trip to view these amazing works of art.
Area artists: Be sure to display your work in the "Fall Art Show" at the Carnegie. You can submit up to three works, and there is no entry fee but donations will be accepted. Entry deadline is Oct. 27. Drop-off times are Wednesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The show will be up for the Linton Fall Arts Festival on Oct. 29 and for the eight weeks following.
Hope to see you at the festival.
