Art Spectacular at the Carillon takes place this weekend, Sept. 14-15, on the grounds around the carillon. The two day, juried art show features 50 regional artists, a number of participants that co-chair Barbara Walker calls a “full house.” (Walker’s co-chair is Sheila Albright.) Other highlights include carillon music for 10 minutes at the top of every hour, local musicians, demos, food by Chadito’s, and a silent auction that includes an Isringhausen import for a weekend and a $100 gift certificate to Indigo. Kids 5-12 years old can buy artwork donated by participating artists on Saturday. And, the Kids’ Place features comic book artist Robert Atkins on Sat. at 12:30 p.m., noodle art on Sunday from 12-3 p.m. and face painting both days by Phil Martin. Entrance to Kids’ Place is $1.25 per child. During the art fair, the Fayette Avenue parking lot is handicap parking only. Guests may park in the rose garden parking lot.
