Recreation Center Seeks Artisans
The Newport Rec Center is looking for artists interested in exhibiting their handmade items at the annual Autumn Fest Art Show on Nov 13th. Taking place in the large gym, this event brings together artists in one place for convenient shopping. Items featured are photography, paintings, jewelry, ceramics, wood working, decorative signs, and more. “We had to cancel last year because of covid, but we are optimistic we can have a safe event this year,” says Recreation Program Specialist Jenni Remillard. “We have a mix of returning artists and a few new ones so far. We are excited to see what everyone has been up to.” Autumn Fest is a great place to get a head start on holiday shopping. A free Kid’s Corner will be available for supervised activities while adults check out the tables. The event is held from 10am to 4pm, Saturday, Nov 13th. Cost for a booth with an 8 foot table is $35, or $40 for a corner booth with two tables. Booths will be distanced and everyone is required to wear a mask.
