About: Beginning this summer, Area 10 Agency on Aging will host the Ellettsville Farmers Market every Saturday, 8 a.m. to noon (June 7 through September 27). Area 10 is thrilled to provide a place for local farmers and neighbors to meet and connect in an easily accessible convenient location. Children will learn more about where their food comes from and families can purchase fresh, local produce and other farm produced goods. Area 10 is located at 631 W. Edgewood Dr. in Ellettsville next to Edgewood Jr. High School.
During market season, the Endwright Center’s hours will be extended to include Saturday mornings (8 am-noon). Patrons will have access to facilities and can come inside to cool off on a hot summer day or participate in scheduled classes and programs. Endwright Center members (only) will have access to the fitness equipment. Everyone is invited to stop at the Area 10 information table to learn about the wonderful services the agency provides to seniors, people with disabilities, their families and caregivers.
At the end of each market day, vendors are encouraged to donate unsold produce to the area 10 food pantry. Our food pantry provides over 500 bags of groceries each month to homebound seniors. Vendors may also compost excess produce scraps in the Area 10 Mustang Garden, a small teaching garden which also provides produce for the food pantry.
We encourage anyone interested in becoming a vendor, reserving an information table, serving as a volunteer, sponsor or supporter of the Ellettsville Farmers Market to contact us soon. The application deadline to reserve a vendor spot for the entire market season is May 2.

“Color Forms of Our Universe” by Martha Kaplan


By Hand Gallery
http://www.byhandgallery.com

”The content of color paints our days and nights. We prefer certain colors and color combinations, Colors have dispositions indicative of regions, origins, harmonics.” The 32 pieces of fine contemporary art, created by Martha Kaplan, are from three different series. The ‘New Kachinas’ are graphite and colored pencils and are a leap of faith from the side of the mind that is new territory. ‘Large Lace Paperworks’ are mixed media drawings setting out to restructure the disparities of the burdens of the world and ‘Pastels’ are the bridge where conscious and unconscious space can meet.

Exhibit will run August 1 through September 27
Closed Sundays

The Arboreal Me by Rebecca Prato

Gather :handmade shoppe & Co:, 101 W Kirkwood Ave Suite 112
http://gathershoppe.com

A self-portrait need not encompass traditional ideas- one can even break away from depicting one’s face, the element typically associated with self-portraits; in my photography the tree has become symbolic of myself which has led me to realize I am creating “self-portrayals” that allow me to create pieces that are as diverse as I am.

Exhibit runs until October 2.
