Fest attracts artists and athletes

Area residents have three chances to participate in the 41st Batesville Music and Arts Festival, slated for June 18-20.

The 16th annual Rural Alliance for the Arts Community Art Show “is a great way for artists to be recognized for their efforts by the community. In the past, we’ve had a great response of excellent art that normally would not be seen,” notes coordinator Connie Rozman.

This judged show for artists at least 18 has three categories: fine arts; applied arts; and photography.

One original piece of art may be submitted by each artist, who must be a resident of Ripley, Franklin or Decatur County; an RAA member; or past RAA art auction donor. Water features cannot be accepted and RAA leaders have the right to refuse art deemed inappropriate.

Prize money from $25 to $100 will be awarded in each category with a Best of Show winner receiving $100.

Entry forms are available at Batesville and Greensburg libraries; RomWeber Marketplace, Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce and Tri-State Artisans, Batesville; and Schwestern Gallery of Arts, Oldenburg.

Original works must be submitted Saturday, June 7, from 9 a.m.-noon at the Community Church of Batesville, 103 E. George St., where the art will be displayed in church windows from June 8-28. Rozman has details at 812-212-1721 or csrozman@yahoo.com.

An art show reception and awards ceremony for the artists and public will be held Thursday, June 19, from 5-8 p.m. at the church. With the street blocked to vehicles, attendees will be able to buy food at a Batesville Area Historical Society cookout and wander from the art show to a concert by Mother Grove, a five-piece Celtic rock band, in the parking lot across the street from 7-9 p.m. The Batesville Memorial Public Library is sponsoring the Indianapolis band as part of its After Hours Concert Series.
