Art on the Avenue nearing

Arts alliance event reaches its 18th year.

Little Turtle Waterway will be bustling with activity for the 18th annual Art on the Avenue in September. Entertainment, art, food and an area for children’s activities will be offered again this year.

Art on the Avenue, hosted by Cass County Arts Alliance, will be 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14. More than 3,500 people were in attendance last year.

Sheila Wildermuth, Cass County Arts Alliance co-president, said all ages will find something to enjoy.

“There’s something for everyone,” Wildermuth said. “It takes an hour out of the day, maybe two, and it’s just a good family thing to do.”

The event is also affordable, Wildermuth said. Tickets are $2 per person or $5 per family.

There will also be different kinds of art for people to enjoy, she said. There will be jewelry, drawings, paintings, sculptures, glass artwork, photography and other types of art will be offered.

Logansport Savings Bank, the event’s corporate sponsor, will be hosting a brunch for the artists.

The event is a juried art show. Experienced judges will look at art work and award prizes.

There will be plenty of food options for people again this year, Wildermuth said. There will be snow cones, popcorn, lemon shake-ups, cotton candy, elephant ears, pork loins, hamburgers, signature ham and brownies.

Kiddie Korner will also be available for children who attend the event. Some of the activities will include face painting, balloon gifts, chalkboard frames, luminaries, and a puppet show. For the second year, “Scribble to Art” will be offered at the Kiddie Korner from 3 to 5 p.m. with Teri Partridge.

Children will start by drawing a line or scribble on a piece of paper with a crayon. Partridge will then add on to the scribble to create a cartoon or picture.

“I have always been a show off with my art work,” Partridge said, jokingly. “It’s a fun way to give back in the community.”
