Rivers and Spires Festival Celebrates 10th Anniversary with a Bang

 

Rivers and Spires Festiveal 2012 - 10 yearsClarksville, TN – The final day of the 2012 Rivers and Spires Festival on Saturday opened with unseasonably cooler weather to the point of being really chilly.  Warm coats, hats, and/or gloves were the order of the day.  Turnout started out slow, and might have been a little bit depressed over all from previous years as a result, but the people who did come out had a really great time!

Arriving around 11:00am, I found dribs and drabs of people mostly scattered around the various stages. As the morning progressed the numbers steadily increased. I made my way up strawberry alley and watched a vendor playing with one of the many items he had for sale. «Read the rest of this article»

 


Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Lots of Blue

 

Trenton Kentucky will hold its annual Heart of Trenton Celebration today, but there was much preparation that had to be done ahead of time in order to welcome several thousand visitors to that tiny town. This year I was invited to help with preparing the annual Quilt Show , which is held at the Golden Threads Drapery Shop on South Main Street.  Visitors will be delighted to see some old favorites as well as newly made quilts from the surrounding areas.  Trenton now has a new quilt shop named Quilt and Sew at Golden Threads, and the owner, Denise Shivers, is also the co-ordinator for the Quilt Show.

Day Trip: Four Guthrie Stops You Don’t Want to Miss

 
Schlabach's Bakery

The Sign for Schlabach's Bakery

Guthrie KentuckyIf you haven’t discovered the delights of shopping in the Guthrie, Kentucky area, you need to get yourself on the road this week. You have to go to Schlabach’s Bakery, first so that you get a good selection because they sell out quickly; the next stop on your trip should be Pencham’s Tack Store; followed by The Flower Pot; and the wonderful Country Pantry, one of the area’s best kept secrets!

Schlabach’s Bakery (6255 Guthrie Road) is just about heaven on earth for sweets and bakery goods. Imagine the joy of finding a cherry or apple or chocolate fudge (or five other varieties of) pie warm from the oven; the $7.10 price is a true bargain. You’ll find cakes, cookies, fried pies (only to die for!), sweet rolls (five different kinds), jelly rolls, pumpkin nut rolls, chocolate rolls, breads (white, wheat, sourdough, salt rising, raisin), dinner rolls and more. You can buy granola, noodles, jams, apple butter, honey and sorghum. And don’t forget the doughnuts (if any are left by the time you arrive!) «Read the rest of this article»

 

Quilts of the Cumberland was the hidden jewel of the Rivers and Spires Festival

 

The Rivers and Spires FestivalClarksville, TN – The weather outside on Saturday was blustery, cold and miserable, but inside the lower level of Madison Street Methodist Church was a display of quilts that warmed the heart of any by-stander.

Quilts of the Cumberland featured more than 50 quilts, ranging from tiny miniatures to full bed-sized artworks. The variety of quilts shown in this exhibit ranged from the perfection of purple geometric pieces in French Braid to the beautiful Geisha of Winter Snow and Tea Ceremony to the shimmering fish in Retiring Fish. Other quilts featured everything from animals to clowns to romantic flower designs.

The final day of Rivers and Spires starts off slow, but picks up in the end

 

The Rivers and Spires FestivalClarksville, TN – Due to unseasonably chilly weather and a blustery wind, the third day of Rivers and Spires looked like it was going to end with a whimper rather than a bang, the victim of the unpredictable spring weather. However as the afternoon wore on, more and more people showed up to enjoy all that the festival had to offer. “The crowd hung in even though we had monsoon winds and rains, and I think it says a lot about this festival, and how much people enjoy it” said Festival Manager Doug Barber.

Clarksville Art Scene Is Alive and Thriving at Riverfest

 

Riverfest 2010A former resident of the Boston and Washington, D.C. areas, I have been fortunate to see some great artworks in my life. I’ve also witnessed the recent “Emperor’s New Clothes” variety (otherwise called “modern art” by some). My feelings towards some of the obscenities fostered on the public in recent years as “art” cannot be printed in this format. One only has to walk through the National Art Gallery where the display is chronological to see how talent somehow was replaced with publicity stunts to see how some artists have sold their souls to pure unadulterated “selling a bill of goods to the unsuspecting” to see what I mean.
