Anyone who creates, performs, or appreciates art on any scale is invited to be part of “Between Essence and Accident”–a new celebration of creativity in the greater Fredericksburg community, on Saturday, August 11, 2012 at Pat’s Hall in Fredericksburg.
“My vision is to have people who are passionate about anything from herbs and jewelry making to Celtic literature and yoga to come share their knowledge”, said Sharon Moreno, event organizer. “We want everyone to think about what delights your soul and how you can share that with the community.”
She is seeking individuals and groups who can present music, poetry, dance, crafts, and visual art. All types of material and levels of talent are welcome, and Moreno especially encourages people to offer original works.
The inaugural event will take place at the historic and newly-renovated Pat’s Hall, 406 Post Oak Road. Beginning at 5:30 p.m., tables around the 400-year-old oak tree will be available to educate and entertain attendees. A more formal performance will begin at 6:30 featuring belly-dance and modern dance, music by Vessel Peace and Eddie Setterbo, local drummers, community singing led by Laurie Jenschke, storytelling, and visual art. Miriah Malec will lead a community movement session and local poetry lovers, Julie Roseberry, Fred Muegge, Lianne Mercer, Mimi Taylor, and more will read a variety of poems.
“We have a special tribute to Dylan Ross starting around 8:30 which will include his poems, music, and dances choreographed to his work. Dylan was only 23 when he passed away last year and his life inspired this event. He took giant leaps with his art and his authenticity will no doubt be an inspiration to all.
The public is invited to attend all the activities. There is no charge for the event but donations will be accepted for local charities, including LittleGrass Ranch. Food and drinks will be available for purchase on a cash basis from Pat’s Hall. An ATM is available.
