BRAZIL — The Celebration of the Arts & Soul, 4th Annual Fall Show will bring three days of fun ways to support local artists and vendors selling unique handmade items including: candles, jewelry, beaded vases, drawings, photography, puppets, paintings, crocheted goods, all natural make-up, bath salts and tie-dyes and more.

At 6:30 p.m. all participants will bring their work to the second floor of the Temple to demonstrate their impromptu creativity. Select pieces will be displayed at the Brazil Public Library.

Also on Saturday, “Condiments Upon Request,” theater group from ISU, will be entertaining participants with improvisation.

An SFX demonstration by Marquis Bunch is planned for 2 p.m. Sunday, and open poetry readings will begin at at 3:30 p.m.

The fall show will be collecting items for the Clay County Emergency Food Pantry, which supports between 350 and 400 families a month.
