THE DIRT: THE REAL DIRT ON GARDENING FROM A MASTER GARDENER Father's Day flowers

The City Council made it official last month: A procedure is being put in place for exhibiting works of art at City Hall. The procedure includes having a standing committee to select from submitted works of art for display.
On Sunday Jan. 22, from 2–4:30 p.m., an “Artists Reception: River Falls Town and Country Artists,” will be presented at the Great River Road Visitor and Learning Center in Prescott. The reception will feature the works of area artists including Doug Johnson, Cheryl Maplethorpe, Ingrid Bjerstedt-Rogers, Jill Berke, Dianne Ginsberg, Dorothy Webster and Anne Kerfoot. Art includes pottery, acrylic, oil, watercolor, pressed flowers and beadwork.
The Friday late afternoon/evening opening at the Gallery 120 in downtown River Falls was called a “Hasel Affair,” which translates into a family affair of artists. Local dentist Bob Hasel (far right) and his wife Lynn, daughter Amy Jo Ley and granddaughter Lucy Jo Ley (far left) all contributed to the art exhibit.
We are in for some treats the next few weeks. The River Falls Community Arts Base’s Music in the Park winds up another great series (see calendar below), to be followed in short order by the 13th annual Art on the Kinni Juried Art Fair from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 13, rain or shine.
Whether or not you’ve attended the latter event previously, you’re sure to enjoy the lovely setting beneath a canopy of trees all along the Kinnickinnic River. There will be 40 artists this year, many new faces but some old favorites. Clayton pottery will demonstrate raku and Wampus Glass Studio will blow glass.
The Hudson Womens’ Club Artful Garden Tour is this weekend, Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. Attendees can tour beautiful gardens, see artists demonstrating and displaying their works and buy a commemorative poster.
This year’s official poster for the Artful Garden Tour, “Flower Basket,” by award-winning artist Anne Kerfoot, celebrates the hanging flower baskets in the city of Hudson and will be available for sale on the tour.
