Spring arrives at arts center

“Sweet springtime is my time is your time is our time for springtime is love time and viva sweet love.”- E. E. CummingsMarch has entered like a benign little lamb. Flowers are sprouting, and the days are lengthening dramatically. I think I even saw a mayfly at the pool the other night.People are showing up in sandals and tiptoeing through tulips and unexpected errant snowflakes. Spring is the season where you learn what dressing in layers means. Spring is the time for poets.The Center for the Arts is springing into high gear with a great season. If the Wild Women art opening with 300 attendees is any indication of what the spring holds, we will be a very busy place. You know it’s spring when ballerinas blossom, tappers take on a new rhythm, and the Dancers Dancing lineup begins to take form for the late April performance.Call to artistsThe Glenwood Springs Center for the Arts is hosting the Home and Garden Arts Exhibit April 8 through May 1.
