This summer the “Art in the Park”, in Three Rivers’ beautiful Scidmore Park, is back! Dates and participants still being organized.
In May, watch for the “Arts Eats & Beats” – a downtown extravaganza of fun, food, art and music!
New shows are springing up around town. Art is everywhere, just look – Three Rivers is an arty place!
Last chance this week to see the most original and unusual art show in the area, now at the Carnegie Center for the Arts in Three Rivers. “Putting It Together” showcases visionary and expressive fine art created with a wide range of non-traditional art materials – “mixed-media” that includes fabric and fiber, paper, wood, metal, found objects and many other bits and pieces “put together” with each artist’s individual expression. The show was created by Kalamazoo fiber artist Angelica Roberts and Three Rivers area artist Gail Walters, who invited 14 artists to share their vision. Don’t miss it.
“Putting It Together” will be available for viewing Tuesday through Friday, 10am to 5pm and Saturday, 10am to 2pm, until Saturday, April 14, in Carnegie’s Armstrong, Fireplace and Wong Galleries. The Carnegie Center for the Arts is located in downtown Three Rivers at 107 N. Main Street (across from the Post Office), phone 269-273-8882, website www.trcarnegie.com. Admission is free.

The show, “Fiber Art and Mixed Media—Putting It Together” will be at Three River’s Carnegie Center for the Arts through April 14. Fourteen Artists share their fresh perspectives on the fiber and mixed media arts with collage, textile wall hangings, sculpture and wearable art that combine sometimes unusual materials into expressive art. Three Rivers Artists Guild members Gail Walters, Joan Hectory, Judi Brook and Becky Hackenberg have pieces in this show.
