Spring Fling to Host Artists Demonstrating Their Craft

Brenda Gardner

The Spring Fling Art Show is promising lots of fun and great artistic demonstrations this Saturday with many local artists, including glassblowers, woodturners, and much more, showing how they make their works.

The show, which was created by Brenda Gardner, owner of the Frame Clinic and Art Alley on West Court Street, was a great success last year, drawing many visitors and residents to see local artists perform their craft.  This year’s show will feature 12 different artists all at the Frame Clinic.

Brenda explained that the artists will actually be demonstrating their craft.  Well known local artists like potter Marianne Brown will be working with clay, woodturner Dickie Crutcher will be turning wood, and Chad Balster will be blowing glass (see below for a full list).  There will also be live music from 3pm to 5pm by the Puncheon Creek Band and food tastings all day from the salt rock grill.

The show benefits the Anderson County Arts Council, and Brenda hopes to see, through successes like the Spring Fling, more ability of the council to promote art.  She would like to see scholarships and competitions for art students through the council.

The Spring Fling Art Show will start at 10am and go to 5pm on Saturday, April 15th, at the Frame Clinic and Art Alley on West Court Street.
