Photos from Third Weekend Fling in the Springs

Third Weekend Fling in the Springs started off Friday, September 16, with artist receptions, music and wine-tasting in town.

The Dayton band, Matter of Chance, performed an impromptu benefit concert in Art Park at the corner of Dayton and Corry Streets. The concert was a benefit for the organization, For the Love of Children (FLOC), a charity for at risk youth in the Greater Dayton Area.

The music was an unexpected treat and captured the attention of passersby who then came into the gallery at Village Artisans to see new works by fabric artist Kate Burch.

Burch (left) uses a number of techniques in her work including digitized embroidery, machine quilting, and thread painting. Her work can be viewed at Village Artisans, 100 Corry Street, through the month of September. Gallery hours are Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m., and Sunday, noon-5 p.m.

Emporium Wines and Underdog Cafe hosted their Friday night wine-tasting and featured musical guests, The Show. The Show is a Yellow Springs-Springfield trio and includes band members Jessica Kinzer, Matt Housh, and Ryan Henry. Artwork currently on exhibit at the Emporium is "Works on Paper" by Michael Casselli (on exhibit through September 30). There was even artwork on the wine bottles!
