Make a Faerie Door at Spark!

Do you believe in Faeries? Would you like to make a door for the wee folk? SPARK! Creative Artspace would like to invite you to join us to create your own Faerie Door. Join us at 9:00 am on Saturday, June 25 at the SPARK! Studio to craft your own! Total cost is $15 ($10 for Spark and $5 for materials).

The faerie workshop will be led by Spark’s master faeries, Eric and Stacey who will provide a wide assortment of materials with which create and customize your own special door to permit the wee folk to enter your home or place of business.

Your creation can be placed wherever you choose, along a baseboard, beside your main entrance, a part of your front door, at the base of a tree, as part of your garden landscape, or wherever you think your faeries would like.

The Faerie Workshop is open to adults and children but young children will require the presence of an adult.

While pre registration is not necessary Spark would appreciate having some idea of the demand. So, if you don’t mind, please fill out and submit the following contact form:

Roots in the Field #3 was GREAT!

Spark’s third iteration of Roots in the Field Music Fest is in the books and it was better than ever. The weather was near perfect with afternoon temps in the upper 70s and an almost cloud free blue sky.

Roots 2016 (10)
Italian sausage by Three Spoons Diner.

The crowd was a nice size and we drew music lovers from at least as far away as Columbus. Doug Gall of Three Spoons Diner served up some great food including prime rib sandwiches, mild Italian sausages, baked potato salad, and macaroni salad. The crew from Sawyer Man’s Fans was on hand again to run the beverage venue and while a goodly amount of brewed beverages were sold there was not the trace of any bad behavior. A well-behaved bunch of music lovers enjoying the weather, the vibes, and their friends.

For the first time we expanded the music lineup to five bands and all from this area. Opening the event was Cactus followed by Morgan, Hadden & Moon. The from Chillicothe Johnny the Fox Band took the stage for some great guitar work. Next to last was a wonderful set by Jay and Angie Wile, otherwise known as The Two Damns. And the headliner of the day was a bunch of musicians who’ve been playing together for years but recently changed their name from Rockin’ Country to  Taking Back Summer.

The music lineup was made possible by a group of generous sponsors including Visitors Bureau of Highland County, Merchants National Bank, Greenfield Products, Edgewood Manor, Buck’s Tire Service, U-Haul of Greenfield, and Sitterles Insurance Agency.  We’d like to also thank WVNU, the Times Gazette, and Highland County Press for all the media coverage they provided Spark.

We want to thank everyone who showed up and helped make this event possible and in doing so showed their appreciation for all Spark is doing in the community.

We’ve already began talking about next year and how Roots #4 can be made even better and we’re open for any suggestions.

Tri Spunoga Diner Deo

As the title says in the Gaelic language, Three Spoons Diner forever. Once again with the support of Doug Gall and his great restaurant staff Spark Creative Artspace enjoyed another fundraising special dinner. For the second year the people of our community came out in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day and to support both Spark and one of the village’s favorite businesses. Spark wants to thank everyone who helped in any way and rest assured the proceeds will be spent wisely on continuing to bring the arts to our area.

Not a frown to be seen!
