    April 20, 2012 No comments

    ArtsGo! 2012 is a one-day event open to the public from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. April 21 at various locations throughout Hendricks County free of charge.

    ArtsGo! is a Hendricks County Arts Council event that provides the community an opportunity to view, buy, listen, and learn about the many artisans and their works that Hendricks County has to offer. Guests will find works of art to suit any eye, from the classic still life to the modern with a touch of whimsy thrown in. Artist mediums include watercolor, acrylics, oils, metals, jewelry, fiber, glass, and woodworking.

    Potters will offer demonstrations on wheel throwing; you can explore the world of hot blown glass, and learn about weaving yarn and turning it into framed art.

    ArtsGo! will also feature hands-on experiences for children of all ages. Make-and-take projects will be featured at Blanton House in Danville in the “Creative Kids Workshop.”

    The following locations will host ArtsGo! events:

    Brownsburg – Artistic Designs Gallery, Frazee Gardens, and the Brownsburg Public Library

    Danville – Gallery On The Square and the Blanton House

    Avon – Hendricks Regional Health YMCA

    Clayton – Hot Blown Glass Studio

    Pittsboro – One Room School

    Plainfield – Chateau Thomas Winery and the Stahlecker/Morrison Studio.

    Performances by the Hendricks County Symphonic Society, Hendricks County Civic Theatre, and other local musicians are expected too. Stop by the Hendricks County Convention and Visitors Bureau in Danville to pick up a copy of The Rural Routes to Main Street Cultural Trail driving map. Rural Routes to Main Street is a self-directed driving tour that leads to Hendricks County art studios, galleries, and other creative spaces year-round 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays.

    Artists’ works will be for sale with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the individual artist.
