East Texas on Display art festival will be this Saturday, March 4, 2017 from 2pm – 8pm in downtown Timpson beginning the Fire Department located at 305 Jacob Street. There are over 30 East Texas artisans that will be on exhibit. Each artist has donated a piece of their original work to the silent auction for the fundraiser. The silent auction ends at 6:45pm. Winners will be announced at 7pm.
 
Some of the work being exhibited includes paintings, photography, blown glass, metal art, custom-made axes and hatchets, custom knives made from bull horns, hand-made jewelry, quilts, custom wood work, and much more! This is truly a display of the artistic talent that is unique to East Texas. The live music and entertainment begins at 2pm and will feature artists from across the East Texas area. Included in the performances will be David Pate and the Mount Olive Baptist Church Choir, Old Town Gospel Project, Makayla Baker, Motley White, Anna Stockdale, Jeremy Bowley of Legal Limit, Sounds of India, and the Rhythm Rocker Cloggers.
 
There will be a delicious variety of foods to choose from, brisket and fried catfish from Frontier Café, southern comfort food from Kowgirl’s Kitchen, funnel cakes from First Baptist Church, and BBQ.
 
It’s not too late to sign up for the instructor-led painting class that will begin at 3pm and go until 5pm or 6pm. The cost is $45 and includes everything that will be needed for you to show up empty-handed but leave with your very own painting of a beach scene. You must register in advance as there are only a few spots remaining.
 
This event is to raise money for the Timpson Volunteer Fire Department, Timpson Volunteer Ambulance Service, Salvation Animal Rescue, and Timpson food banks. Garrison Nursing Home & Rehabilitation Center will be onsite sharing information about their services and facilities. Come out and meet the fine folks from The Precious Cycle and learn how they are here to help the community when needs arise.
 
This will be a great day full of good ol’ fashion family fun! Do not worry about the weather as the event will be held indoors and the entertainment will be on stage beneath a large tent. For more information, please call or text 936-254-5050. Hope to see you there! This is a FREE event!
