Seville, OH (just west of Wadsworth) is celebrating their Bicentennial and among their many events is the Center & Main Market. On Saturday, July 23rd from 10am-5pm, Center & Main Market will host nearly 50 of the finest handmade artists and makers in the area.
To see all the vendors, please check the Center & Main Market Facebook page here.
Partnering with our good friends from Cleveland Bazaar, there will be food trucks, vintage, and more at the family-friendly outdoor event. Crafty Mart is sponsoring a beer garden featuring local brews from Lager Heads. And, at 11am on Saturday, Seville kicks off their Bicentennial celebration with a parade. Be sure to bring the kids!
In other news, we hope you're as excited as we are to see the indie film Yarn (2016) playing at Akron's favorite movie house, The Nightlight, this weekend only. Here's The Nightlight schedule.
Yarn (2016) movie summary:
Needlework is one of the few art forms that originated with women, argues an Icelandic crochet artist in Una Lorenzen’s quiet and lyrical documentary Yarn — and that’s why it’s rarely considered fine art. Yarn goes far in changing that perception by featuring the work of three artists and an avant-garde circus troupe who use crochet and knitting to create colorful, thought-provoking, and occasionally comic works that have garnered the attention of art critics around the world.
Between interviews, the camera lingers on gorgeous Icelandic vistas and cute woolly sheep, which evoke feelings of warmth and comfort that are somewhat at odds with what the artists are trying to achieve. Still, the film offers fascinating insight into what yarn can do in the talented hands of those determined to elevate mere craft to high art.
