On Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 10 from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Terra Studios will be hosting its 8th annual Spring Music Fest. A small, but fabulous, line-up of Americana musicians make this a perfect Mother’s Day outing. The line-up includes William Adkins, guitarist and vocalist at noon; Silver Linings with their lovely harmonies at 1:00 p.m.; Sarah Lou Richards, on tour from Nashville, at 2:00 p.m.; Hippie Outlaws (Richard Burnett and Friends) at 3:00 p.m.; and Aisle 24 (eclectically inspired folk with provocative lyrics and harmonious sound) at 4:00 p.m. All performers are donating their time and talent to promote Terra Studios nonprofit programs including the free Family Art Adventure and Senior Art Social programs.
This year’s festival will include the first Family Art Adventure of the season. The Family Art Adventure features free arts and crafts, face-painting, balloon animals, and special entertainment. (You may want to mark your calendars for the next Family Art Adventures with fun and educational themes to be held June 14, July 12, and August 9.) Because it is Mother’s Day, the art & craft projects will be gifts for mom. Most of the crafts will be free (bookmarks, cards, flower fridge-magnets, bead bracelets) and a few art projects will be available for a fee (ornaments – $5; hula hoop – $10; dyed silk scarf – $20.)
Though admission to Terra Studios is always free, a $5/person donation to benefit the nonprofit is encouraged. As usual, glass artists will be demonstrating the creation of the famous Bluebirds, the works of over 100 local artists awaits you in the amazing gallery building, and snacks and beverages may be purchased in the café.
The event will be held rain or shine. Of course, everyone is hoping for a beautiful spring day with music on the outdoor stage and folks either in the seating provided or lounging in their lawn chairs and on blankets around the pond; however, if it is raining, the event will be moved indoors to the event center and classroom building.
Bring the whole family for a great day of music and art.
