Lovers of the arts are invited to help celebrate the publication of the latest issue of Cave Region Review: A Journal of Literary and Visual Art, published annually by North Arkansas College. A launch reception for the journal’s most recent issue will be held Saturday, Nov. 18, from 11 a.m.- 4 p.m. in the L.E. “Gene” Durand Center on Northark’s Center Campus. Guests will be treated to live music, arts and crafts, food, activities for kids, and door prizes. The event is free and open to the public. While local bands, including National Park Radio and Tessa Kate, play on stage, visitors can sit and enjoy the music, interact with artists, including photographers, painters, jewelry makers, and wood workers. Artists include Sandy Williams, Rita Szabo, Amanda Case, Christine Ayres, Donna Joudan, The Photography Club of the Ozarks, Kim and Joe Brecklein, and many more. Artist will be selling their wares, so this would be a good opportunity to get some Christmas shopping done. Additionally, local craftsman Jon Dezort will be printing several designs on shirts, and guests are encouraged to bring their own T-shirts and sweatshirts if they would like to have them printed that day. There are also activities for the kids, such as face painting and interactive creative projects designed by the artists. Plus, there will be popcorn, cookies, punch, and a sit down meal, including barbecue, beans, and potato salad. The 2017 issue of Cave Region Review, the ninth volume of the journal, includes poetry, short stories, photography, and artwork by artists and writers from across the Ozarks region, as well as a few featured guests from outside the area. The festival is supported in part by the William P. & Susan Stiritz Endowed Chair in the Humanities.
