The Vernal Arts and Music Festival is a new kind of arts festival in Smithfield, RI. Within the forest, on the fields, and among gardens of Mowry Commons (the prized property of the ecological non-profit, Revive the Roots) there will be artists. These artists will be of all types–poets, musicians, weavers, painters, sculptors, photographers, and more–and they will join to make an interactive day of art for all ages. This won’t be an artistic marketplace; this will be an artistic ecosystem. And all are invited to explore and create, free of charge. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved as an artist. Where: 374 Farnum Pike, Smithfield, RI 02917 (Check out the Map.) When: June 14th, 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
