Artists were invited to create work using recyclable materials: newspapers, plastic bottles, cardboard, metal, wood, etc. Plastics, paper, glass and other recyclables are becoming more difficult to deal with, and the featured artists have creatively turned trash into treasure.

Participants include professional artists from across the state as well as local middle school students. Ron Love of Bowling Green, KY creates paintings with soda and beer cans, Berea artist Debra Hille is creating a "plastic woman" and Robbie Mueller of Oldham County creates one-of-a-kind folk art with found objects. Patricia Weiner's art students at Foley Middle School created artistic benches from wooden pallets in a project led by Lexington artist Dave Cooper. The project was funded by Arts for All Kentucky which provides opportunities for people with disabilities to be part of the life of their communities.

Presented by the Spotlight Acting School

Performed by students ages 9-14

When a mysterious talking groundhog steals young Ellie's homework, she takes off down a hole after it and finds herself in a place where nothing is as it seems - the Land of Rejected Fairy Tale Characters. Here, Ellie meets a crazy assortment of misfits who were cut from the fairy tales we all know and love. There's her shadow-fearing sidekick, Groundhog; Mac, the eighth and world's largest dwarf; Jacqueline, the great Giant Slayer armed with a magic polka-playing accordion; and more - Indecisive Goldilocks, Sleepless Beauty, Little Red Robin Hood, Fairy Godfather, and even Big Bad Platypus. Groundhog and the rest of the misfits make a deal to help Ellie find her way back home if, in return, she writes them into stories that can be shared with others. But Queen White-Out and her eraser minions, Pink Pearl and Big Mistake, have other plans. Will the misfits be erased forever, or will they find their own happily ever after?

Christmas Double Feature at the Spotlight Playhouse: 
The Best Christmas Pageant Ever & Black and Blue Friday 

November 23, 29, 30
November 24, December 1
The Spotlight Playhouse
214 Richmond Rd. N.

Presented by the Spotlight Players

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

In this hilarious Christmas classic, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids--probably the most inventively awful kids in history. You won't believe the mayhem - and the fun - when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on!

Black and Blue Friday

It's the day after Thanksgiving, and all Ellie and her new husband, Jackson, want is to celebrate their first holiday season at home together. But their holiday peace and quiet quickly turns into holiday chaos when they are summoned to the security office at the local mall. Seems Ellie's backwoods relatives were planning to surprise her with a visit, but first stopped at the store to pick up some paper goods. That's when the trouble began. What they thought was a big-box store turned out to be a shopping mall full of frenzied Black Friday shoppers, and, of course, the hillbilly family ended up causing all sorts of trouble. As Ellie's family unravels their hysterical stories - like Ellie's brothers trying to take a ride on the fancy moving staircase only to find themselves sliding around on the ice rink and taking out Santa's village - one simple truth is revealed. These country bumpkins might not know much about modern-day living, but they sure do understand what the holiday season is about... and it ain't shopping.

The Art of the Book: 45 Years of Larkspur Press
(October 20, 2019 - January 31, 2020)

This exhibit celebrates 45 years of Larkspur Press owned and operated by artist Gray Zeitz.
Larkspur Press, located just outside of Monterey, KY, has produced hundreds of fine, letterpress, hand- bound editions of works by Kentucky poets and writers for 45 years. Zeitz is the most important designer and printer working in Kentucky and he has published at least a dozen beautiful, handmade chapbooks by his friend Wendell Berry.

The "Art of the Book" exhibit will showcase printed broadsides - poems with illustrations published by hand letterpress Larkspur Press. The show will also include actual wood engravings by the roster of fine artists Zeitz uses to illustrate his publications. Illustrators/artists include Wesley Bates, of Canada, Joanne Price, of Bagdad, John Lackey, of Lexington, Carolyn Whitsel, of Cincinnati, Laura Lee Cundiff, of Versailles and John Dixon pf Danville.
Zeitz and his press are well known in the world of hand letterpress art and he has published poems by almost every Kentucky Poet Laureate and nearly all of Wendell Berry's poetry. Zeitz began his typography career as an apprentice at the University of Kentucky King Library Press under the tutelage of Carolyn Hammer. Learning the skills of fine hand printing and typographic design he went on to establish Larkspur Press in 1974.
Also on display is an array of Larkspur Press books both in hardback and soft cover formats by many Kentucky Poet Laureates such as Mary Ann Taylor Hall, Richard Taylor, Jeff Worley, Frederick Smock and others.

Tate Sessions: Tab Caudill & Catching Apples

November 21
Berea Arts Council
444 Chestnut St.

Doors at 6:30pm.
Music from 7-9pm.
Cash bar.

Tab Caudill is a Central Kentucky songwriter, and a queen of heartbreak ballads. She believes the best songs come from the darkest of times, and that hurting is something we all can relate to. Writing folk rock tunes for over a decade now, Caudill puts on display painfully vulnerable lyrics to match with gut wrenching belts, and stories of a lover's past.

Catching Apples is an Indie Folk band formed by Patrick Woods and Tyler Devall in 2017. What began as a moonshine fueled jam session - quickly developed into a legitimate project - due to the bands natural collaborative chemistry - finishing three songs in just three sessions. With Woods and Devall sharing the roles of lead singer/songwriter and accompanying each other accordingly, mainly on guitar and banjo, their music is quite varied - from light hearted pop - to dark introspective folk - with harmonies - both heavenly and haunting - throughout.

Learn to make Sauerkraut @ Smoothies on the Square
Cost: $20
(104 Main Street, Berea.  Located inside the Berea College Visitor Center & Shoppe on College Square)

For those of you who would love to learn to ferment your own foods and truly understand what it's all about, this is a great opportunity for you. Many people are afraid to ferment as we were taught that foods belong in the refrigerator or freezer or need to be full of preservatives in order to not be "poison". But long before we had modern technology, our ancestors preserved their food through fermentation.

When you understand how it works - it will put all fears to rest. It's actually a very simple process, easier than cooking or baking. Join us and learn why the process works, the underlying principles, and how to do it properly. This demo will be sauerkraut. We will be making traditional sauerkraut and you will also get to taste a couple of variations using other ingredients along with the cabbage. You will also discover the best way to add fermented foods, such as sauerkraut, to your daily diet. You will leave knowing how to save money by making your own sauerkraut and how to make it to your own taste. 

November 3

Nancy's voice will lead you through a guided relaxation where all the senses are drawn to gentle, conscious awareness, inviting the body to heal, creativity to flourish, and heart to expand. While in this safe, sacred space Jeremy and Nancy will create a soundscape of handpan, didgeridoo, crystal singing bowls, multiple gongs, chimes and more. Each experience is created and offered with love and intention for healing and relaxation. Receive deep rest while being immersed in the ethereal vibrations of a Yoga Nidra Sound Journey. All are welcome, no prior experience with yoga or meditation necessary.
