First Friday, Sept 7, 5-8p

Hello Kudos Customers --

Another First Friday tomorrow night at Kudos, 10 S Main, Mt. Vernon, from 5-8pm (or later).  Looks like cooler temps and no rain which should bring out lots of our friends.

On the agenda tomorrow is art surrounding First Friday theme, Farm Friday.  Painters Wendy Fetters and Helen Neumann will be demonstrating the painting of a barn scene.  Other artists will have farm related art on display.  Of course, our beautiful non-farm related art will also be available for you to see.  Our soap maker/musician Jami Ingledue will be on hand to play and sing for you.  And, as usual, there will be yummy snacks.

We have two wonderful new artists.  Susan Kelmetti is an eco-friendly fiber artist.  Her fiber is dyed with nut, berries, seeds, bark -- all things found in nature.  She uses leaves, nuts, twigs, etc to print onto her beautiful naturally dyed fabrics.  Linda Gill makes lovely all 100% beeswax candles with 100% natural cotton wicks.  She uses no perfumes or colors in her candles of many shapes and sizes.  Stop in to see their amazing work.

Hope to see you at Kudos tomorrow evening.
