ArtsGo! presented by the Hendricks County Arts Council
ArtsGo! 2012 is celebrating its 7th annual event which will take place onSaturday, April 21st from 9am to 6pm at various locations throughout Hendricks County, Indiana.
Brownsburg, Pittsboro, Avon, Danville and Plainfield will welcome visitors to this one-day event open to the public and best of all, it is FREE!
This event provides the opportunity for our community, family, friends and visitors from around the state to view, purchase, listen and learn about the many wonderful artisans and their works that Hendricks County has to offer.
Guests will find fine works of art to suit any eye from the classic still life to the modern with a touch of whimsy thrown in! Artist mediums will include watercolor, acrylics, oils, metals, jewelry, fiber, glass and wood-working. Potters will offer demonstrations on wheel throwing; you can explore the magic world of hot blown glass, learn about weaving yarn and turning it into framed art! Musicians will entertain and bits of theatrical performances will be sprinkled about the county as well!
ArtsGo! will also feature hands-on experiences for children of all ages at Blanton House, make and take projects and the opportunity to participate in a collage piece that will be displayed at Gallery On The Square and then auctioned at the annual Midsummer Night’s Gala benefiting the Hendricks County Arts Council. ArtsGo! is full of creativity, adventure and education for everyone and a great way to support the arts in Hendricks County! Visitors are sure to find hometown restaurants and plenty of other unique places to shop and browse.
