  • "My artwork is a unique blending of antique Depression glass dishes and contemporary stained glass. Starting with my focal point, glass is cut and custom fit as the panel evolves. This provides me with a freedom to create as I craft each piece of art glass." -- Retta Hentschel, Aurora glass artist

Participating artists will also donate small items for the Young Art Appreciators "kids only" tent, where they can purchase original art for $1, $2, or $5 with proceeds going toward Arts in Bartlett scholarships and grants. Parents can then take them to meet the artists and learn more about their techniques.

Children can also create their own art in the Children's Art Gazebo under the direction of the Color My World Children's Art Studio teachers. The World Tent features drumming circles and a henna artist. A "sit and knit" tent will encourage visitors to contribute a row or two on swatches of colorful knitting to be used for a unique fiber project for the 2014 Bartlett Heritage Days September 5-7.

Food vendors and a beer-and-wine tent near the stage make this a great place to hang out all day.

Nonstop entertainment is on the stage both days. Kick off the weekend early at 10 a.m. Saturday, by kicking up your heels with the Cadillac Ranch Dance Team and some line dance fun. Other performers range from folk to rhythm and blues to world champion dulcimer player Ted Yoder. Saturday after-hours bands start at 5 p.m.

This year's Arts Festival is sponsored by Bartlett, the Bartlett Park District, the Bartlett Examiner, Daily Herald, Renewal by Andersen, and A. Mategrano DDS.

A full list of artists and schedule of entertainment is available at www.artsinbartlett.org.
