6TH ANNUAL PIERCE CITY ARTS FESTIVAL AND WINE TASTING
 
 
The 6th Annual Pierce City Arts Festival and Wine Tasting is set for May 17, 2014 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Pierce City Park (South Park) in Pierce City, MO. Wine tasting will be 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the park. Free admission. Entry into wine garden for tasting with purchase of a $7 souvenir wine glass.
 
Come for art in the park! Meet the artists and authors at the art marketplace. Find works of art in painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, folk art, and more. Catch up with the latest books by area authors and meet the writers. Try your hand at some free art workshops, experience free chalk drawing and the junk art booth for kids, and get a free root beer float from 1-2 p.m.! (One per person please). Got about 5 minutes? Have your portrait drawn while you wait.
 
New to the festival this year is the International Club of Wheaton High School with a Hmong dance performance. Brian’s Root Beer returns as a festival favorite. The Pierce City Arts Council (PCAC)’s own homemade root beer was introduced in 2013 in honor of late PCAC member, Brian Andelin. Root beer sales benefit the Brian Andelin Memorial Pierce City Arts Council Art Scholarship. Andelin's family, together with the Pierce City Arts Council (PCAC), established the scholarship in memory of the late PCAC volunteer and supporter. Brian’s Root Beer, homemade lemonade, tea, and food will be for sale throughout the festival.
 
Wines from local Ozark Mountain Wine Trail vintners 7C's, Keltoi, and Whispering Oaks will be available for tasting inside the wine garden from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. This year the wine garden is sporting a new split rail fence hand-built by a PCAC volunteer. Wickman’s Garden Village will offer flowers for sale inside the wine garden.  Also featured will be “Sip n Paint” with April Davis Brunner. No additional charge with $7 souvenir wine glass purchase.
 
Free art workshops will be offered throughout the day at the central pavilion. The following artists will lead the free classes:  Dustin Miller, Neosho High School art teacher and adjunct art instructor at Crowder Community College – colored pencil techniques; Teresa Dilsaver of  Republic – “Majestic Mountains,”- oil painting (this workshop will include techniques for painting mountains and tips on creating the feeling of distance in your mountain landscapes); DJ Bates of Joplin, "Birds, Butterflies and Blooms" - watercolor (learn how to watch paint run, wash, layer, glaze and combine colors, and highlight shadows and light. Explore the fun of wet in wet, or dry brush effects); Dale Augustson, North Arkansas College and OTC art instructor from Springfield – mixed media (create abstract art by combining acrylic paints and found objects in nature); and Eli Herrin, a 12-year-old Cassville Middle School student, will demonstrate the ancient art of origami in beginning, intermediate, and advanced classes.
 
Free interactive painting will be offered by Helen Kunze at her booth. Do not miss the free junk art booth with Diana Donaldson and free chalk drawing all day.
 
Budding potters will have the opportunity to make a work of clay and have it fired. For $5 kids may “throw a pot” ($10 for adults) under the direction of potter Christina Lorenzen of Joplin. Pots will be fired after the festival and returned to Bookmarks bookstore in Pierce City to be picked up later.
