New sculptures installed for trail
New sculptures for the 2017-2018 Sculpture Trail, ranging from humorous to thought-provoking, were installed last week in Cloverdale and Geyserville. They will be on display until May 8, 2018.
The 10 new sculptures in Cloverdale were created by artists Joe Bologna, Peter Crompton, San Huncilman, Adrian Litman, David Mudgett, Hector Ortega, Pierre Riche, Sculpture Jam, Bryan Tedrick and Carlos Zamora.
Geyserville sculptures are the work of artists Tyson Barbera, Flavia Krasilchik, Adrian Litman, Phillip Lynch and Ernest & Lois Rich.
An artists’ reception will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on May 19. Everyone is welcome to attend this free event.
Street Fair replaces farmers market
The Cloverdale Certified Farmers’ Market, previously held in conjunction with the popular Friday Night Live summer concert series, is being replaced this year with a new event called The Street Fair. It will operate under the auspices of the Cloverdale Arts Alliance.
Former market manager Tina Castelli has agreed to oversee the new market and says applications will be going out soon.
“The Street Fair will continue the tradition of offering fresh and interesting food choices in addition to vendor-made preserved foods and wellness products and items from local artists and crafters,” she said.
Interested vendors can contact Castelli at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Celebrate May Day with food, family
Legend has it that Geyserville has been celebrating May Day since 1925.
On the first Sunday of the month, May 7 this year, locals gather as a community to celebrate.
The Geyserville Chamber of Commerce has found sponsors for a free climbing wall and jumpie for kids of all ages to enjoy.
A BBQ Rib cook-off will feature 10 teams looking to win the top spot.
Food of all kinds prepared by locals makes it a day to bring out the family.
Geyserville Elementary School third-graders will dance around the maypole, the May Day Queen will make an appearance and Egg Toss games will bring out the kid in everyone.
The Hoffman Picnic Grounds will have booths from the Chamber of Commerce, the Geyserville Community Foundation and the Historical Society.
Students’ video ties for first place
“These are the Walls that Speak,” a two-minute video about artistic empowerment and inspiration by Windsor High School students, tied for first place in the 2017 Student Voices Campaign. It shares that honor with “Art in Education,” a video by students at Bear River High School in Grass Valley.
Launched by the California Alliance for Arts Education, the Student Voices Campaign encourages students in grades 7-12 to create a video that expresses their vision about their education and school district.
