Art, poetry, and music highlight 10th annual Little Bloomsbury Festival

The work of talented local artists, poets and musicians will be highlighted at the 10th annual Little Bloomsbury Art and Music Festival scheduled to open Thursday, April 28 and continue through Saturday, April 30th. The hours will be from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day.

Dr. B.C. Sun, executive director of the Little Bloomsbury Foundation, says she converts her home into an art gallery each year although it started as a housewarming when she first moved to Logan from London.

Sun says traditional and innovative art will represent the work of more than 20 artists ranging in age from seven to 77.

Justin White, a senior at Sky View High School, is delighted that his own prize-winning painting titled “CRUSH” will be part of the show. White says his interest in art started only two years ago during a time when he was having a hard time deciding what he wanted to do with his life.

“My parents kind of pushed me over the edge to take the class,” says White. “That’s when I ended up painting ‘CRUSH.’

“I have to say the reason I named it ‘CRUSH’ is it was the first piece of mine that I fell in love with, personally. That’s what started me wanting to do more art.”

There is a concert each of the three evenings with a magic show and storytelling concert on Thursday. An Oriental concert and variety show will take place Friday and on Saturday a Bluegrass, country and rockabilly concert will take place.

The address of the festival is 181 North 200 East where there is a colorful teepee in the front yard.
