Bolton hosts a flurry of events this week
So much is happening this week in Bolton, that it demands to be presented here in our community column. See the community calendar for links to details and contacts.
Leading the list is the fifth annual Sidewalk Art Show set for Saturday and Sunday. This outdoor display centered downtown is a treat for those who enjoy viewing works of art in an incomparable lakeside setting. A good number of artists will be displaying their work representing a wide range of media in front of shops and galleries throughout our charming hamlet. Some of the artists participating include Nancy Rhodes, Jo Ann Kohr-Smith, Clea Hall, Genell Pike, Rochelle McCartney, Mark Perry, Joyce Cleveland, Tanya Sawn, Marina Petro, Esmond Lyons and more. For more information, call 644-3880.
Speaking of art displays, the Sweet Pea Farm Perennials & Art Gallery at 121 Federal Hill Road will be hosting an exhibition reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday for painter Marianne Kuhn. Kuhn's work includes prismatic realism landscapes and still lifes.
Friday through Sunday, our Bolton Free Library will be holding its annual Huge Book Sale, and people who've experienced it know this event lives up to its name. Books, DVDs and CDs are included. Remember, while early in the sale, selection is best, Sunday is bargain day. Those who want to volunteer to staff a table for the library are urged to call Megan at 644-2233 or Cindy Farbaniec at 240-6009.
Travel just several miles south of Bolton on Saturday to experience the "Annual Taste of Diamond Point" food fest, noon-2 p.m. at Diamond Point Community Church, Lake Shore Drive. Samplings of gourmet food from 10 local restaurants will be available at a nominal charge. This annual fundraiser for the church has become quite popular.
