Got a secret yearning to show off your talents?
Are you a visual artist, a musician, a juggler maybe?
Then the Morton Library’s fourth annual talent show in Rhinecliff may well be your ticket to fame.
Billed as an “evening of jokes, one-man bands, storytelling, guitar playing, dance – you name it,” the show will feature community members who obviously have no fear.
The event takes place Fri., March 1 starting at 6pm. But the organizers, from the Morton Memorial Library and Community House, hope to get the talent lined up by Feb. 2.
“If you are a visual artist, bring work that you would like to have displayed and possibly purchased by an admiring audience member. If you are a musician or have musical aspirations, be prepared to regale with song (piano provided). If you can talk a blue streak while juggling and playing the saw, then bring it on, and if you can create an edible masterpiece, we can most certainly promise a truly appreciative audience. We even have a projection system for showing short films — no more than 3 minutes, please. Any and all types of creative expression — especially the odd and quirky — are welcomed and embraced,” said Sandy Bartlett, assistant library director, in a library news release. Any visual art submitted will remain on display in Morton Hall for the month of March.
So sign up, for whatever, with Bartlett at email@example.com.
And let her have the final word. “This show and our community are all about enjoyment and camaraderie — no judgment!” she said.
