Art Blast on the Mon 2015
The 10th annual Art Blast on the Mon will again be staged on Labor Day weekend, Saturday, September 5th and 6th in a much larger space venue, the Ice Plant Pavilion and grounds, Greensboro, Pennsylvania. On Saturday the event runs from 10 am-5 pm and on Sunday from noon-4 pm.
This event is championed by the Nathanael Greene Community Development Corporation and is a celebration of music and art for all ages. Truly one of the more unique festivals in our area, visitors enjoy many interactive programs, demonstrations and entertainment that are not so common at other local fairs and festivals.
Much of Art Blast is hands-on, for both children and adults, where you get to actually experience the fun and creativity of different art forms. At Art Blast, you don’t just watch the potter spinning the clay, you get to put your hands on and feel the joy of creating and sculpting yourself. Several artists will be there with interactive demos on techniques in paper art, print making, pottery, photography and other disciplines. Appearing again this year is special guest , Miss Teacup with her special face painting techniques. The musical entertainment this year includes two time National Banjo Champion Vince Farsetta and his amazing fiddle player friend, Keith McManus and the Vibrations.
There will be a unique show of Greensboro Historic Pottery by Dave Reid. The unique stoneware that was manufactured from local red clay and thus had a very distinctive coloring was a very important influence on Greensboro’s early history and economy. Also again this year the Greensboro Baptist Church will be hosting a spectacular Quilt Show on Saturday from 10 am- 4 pm. The church is located on the corner of Water Street in downtown Greensboro.
Something for which Art Blast on the Mon has become famous for is the Art Exhibit from students of Art classes of Greene County School Districts. Each district that participates will receive a cash award. You will also find a host of artisans and craft people with their wares on sale, and a variety of food vendors available all day.
There is no admission to the Art Blast on the Mon, all this fabulous entertainment and fun is completely FREE. That is possible only because of the generous support of sponsors. This year’s sponsors.
