The atmosphere will be filled with music, commotion and art will come alive at this weekend’s Colorscape Chenango fine arts show.
The community will be getting into gear this week for the 12th annual Colorscape Chenango, being held Saturday and Sunday in both East and West parks in downtown Norwich.
The festival draws in artists nation-wide, coming as far as Canada, Virginia and Florida. The park will be packed with 85 vendors for this year’s event. This year will hold the record for the number of artists in attendance, increasing from 80 craftsmen last year.
“There will be a lot of new vendors this year with an unusual number of painters,” said Colorscape Director Peggy Finnigan.
This is Kristin Deady and Scott Griffin’s first time exhibiting the festival. They will be demonstrating the art of flameworking. Kristin says it will be nice to come back to where she grew up and show people about the process of the art she makes.
