Over 50 artists will gather on the banks of Indian Bayou next Saturday to show their creations, talk to visitors and sell their beautiful hand made potter, metal work, paintings and photographs, jewelry, paper mache, needlework......such a huge variety of art will be offered! All original...all handmade and all for sale!
Even a blacksmith.....Chris Covington originally from Indianola, will have his forge set up on the festival grounds working on knives or hammers...."creating a little smoke and noise," Chris said. What an experience to see a "smithy" at work!
Several artists will be working on paintings and sketches...always a joy to see a work of art come alive. Cartoonist, Ricky Nobile will be drawing from 10:30 to 1:30 with YOU as his subject in his wonderful caricatures! Another thrilling thing to watch!
Festival food like Hot Tamales, BBQ, and freshly baked cinnamon rolls! Live music all day with the Praise teams from First Methodist Church and First Baptist Church, Andrew Garrett with his guitar, Josie Washington and Best Friends...beautiful music as the background for a great day outdoors! Wonderful FREE children's activities like tennis, volleyball, hop scotch, face painting, story telling, an art tent to create the child's own Harmony Guitar as well as create a collage of natural, woody items to compete in an art contest! Indianola's Animal Shelter will have puppies to adopt and love....so much to see in a great atmosphere to enjoy a FREE Family Day of FUN....in Indianola 9 to 4 on the Bayou. You'll see us across from the B.B. King Museum and the Blue Biscuit on Second Street! To see more about the Festival go to Facebook/Indian Bayou Arts Festival and read all about it!
