Art Scene

Summer turns to fall, fall to winter, winter to spring and back again. Change is as much a part of nature’s rhythm as its predictability. Fall comes ” it always comes! And danged if it isn’t just around the corner.

They say the trees are even turning several weeks early. It gets parents in the state of mind to buy school supplies and plan after-school activities for the kids. We invite everyone to try something new this fall, to make a change, to, in fact, shimmy into fall. Let’s not mosey, shuffle or meander as we so often do! Instead, grab a veil and a belly jewel (out of your veil and belly-jewel drawer) and learn how to belly dance.

Classes start Sept. 13 ” before the frost lights on the pumpkins. Do it just for the veil! Do it for the health of it, the joy of it. Do it because you’ve never done it before. Do it so that when your mother-in-law calls from Jersey, the kids can say, “Mom’s not in right now. She’s at her bellydancing class.” We are offering a wide variety of classes. There is something for everyone!

n Change of Art Flea Market, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday

If you love unique items, if you are an artist in search of supplies, if you are a collector in search of that one-of-a-kind item, or you just love to browse the yard sales and flea markets, this is a great time to pick up the coolest items, as artists have the most unique “trash” in the world. Not an ordinary yard sale, this promises to be a bizarre bazaar! See you there!
