Art to spring up at annual show

In addition to the flowers springing up this time of year, booths showcasing fine arts and crafts will sprout at Bicentennial Park.

Boulder City Art Guild will present its 34th annual spring show Saturday and Sunday, April 13 and 14, in the downtown park. More than 80 artisans from throughout the Southwest will showcase their work, said Marion “Happy” Hoekenga, who is spearheading the event for the guild.

“Crafts for collectors and the curious” is how the guild has been describing the assortment of exhibits, she said.

There will be paintings, photography, jewelry, garden art and more.

One of the popular features, spinner bowls, will be available at the city’s art center booth. It allows people to “paint” ceramic bowls that were made at the art center at ABC Park.

There will be a raffle, featuring art donated by guild members and show exhibitors, with proceeds benefiting the guild’s scholarship fund. Tickets can be purchased at the show or in advance at the guild’s gallery inside Boulder Dam Hotel, 1305 Arizona St.

Food vendors also will be on site.

The show is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days at the park, 999 Colorado St. Admission is free.

Dessert evokes flavors of fall

Thank you, summer. It’s been a blast, but we’ve had our fill of scorching heat and dusty days. We know better than anyone how wonderful it feels when the leaves begin to change, temperatures drop and autumnal bliss is in the air. It may not be here yet, but we know it’s coming.

Take the ‘pain’ out of making paint choice

The bright yellow leaves fallen on my lawn, albeit heat-induced, remind me that autumn will soon bring us its fabulous color palette. Early fall and preholidays is the perfect time to paint because opening windows for ventilation is ideal. And it will get your house spiffy for the upcoming gatherings. If painting is on your to-do list, start planning now.

Turkey meatballs make dinner easy

Sometimes ground turkey gets a bad rap. Years ago, turkey was significantly less expensive than hamburger, so frugal-minded folks started swapping it in recipes calling for ground beef with mixed results.
