Join us for an event-filled weekend…

Join us this weekend, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, May 18-20, for an event-filled weekend in and around Stockholm. 

Take the self-guided Fresh Art spring tour of fourteen artists’ studios and galleries.  This is a rare opportunity to meet artists where they work and talk with them face-to-face about their creations.  Artists who work with paintings, clay, jewelry, hand-forged metal, and fiber are inviting you into their studios from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, Friday through Sunday.  You can find plants and garden art for sale from many of the artists, too.  Abode Gallery in Stockholm is participating with a feature of the paintings of J R. Lince-Hopkins who has a studio in the Stockholm area.

Check out the antiques in the orchard offered by twenty-five plus dealers of Early Americana who will be set up inside and under a big tent at Maiden Rock Apples/Cidery and Winery .  The preview is Friday, May 18, from 5 – 8 p.m. and costs $15.  Saturday, May 19, the event is from 9 – 5, and Sunday the hours are 11-4.  Admittance is $5 each day. 

Enjoy an evening of music from Prairie Home Companion's ButchThompson and Pat Donohue on Saturday, May 19.  Butch Thompson on piano and Grammy-award-winning, fingerstyle guitarist Pat Donohue will play blues, jazz, and original music.  You will get a preview of tunes from their new CD, "Vicksburg Blues." Local favorites, the Ditchlilies, will open the evening.  Tickets are $18.   Kids 12 and under are free. 

See the new spring merchandise in the shops and stop by an eatery for a refreshing break. 

We’d love to see you again,
