Reader's Corner: KAL to host Festival of Arts

Our area libraries are a valuable resource for reading material, but they also offer so much more! On Saturday, June 29, and Sunday, June 30, Kimberling Area Library will partner with Table Rock Art Guild and Table Rock Art Gallery as they host the 43rd Annual Festival of Arts, “Caribbean Wonderland.”


The Festival showcases the work of local artisans, ranging from two-dimensional paintings and drawings in a variety of media, to exquisitely designed jewelry, pottery and other forms of three-dimensional art. Browsing through the Festival booths is a wonderful educational experience and a chance to visit with each artist about their work, but it’s also a great place to shop for home décor and fabulous one-of-a-kind gifts.


Area businesses, organizations and individuals are also invited to become Art Patrons. Patrons will have their name displayed on the Patrons Board at the Festival, along with a listing in the Festival Exhibitors Guide. Patrons will enjoy a special pre-festival evening on Friday, June 28, featuring steel drum music, wine, hors d’oeuvres and first chance at browsing the items on display. Patron donations start at just $25, and for each $25, patrons receive $20 in shopping credit at the Festival, with $5 going toward support of the Children’s Art Fair, a special week of art education in March with the entire Gallery devoted to displaying art from area kids.


For more information about becoming a patron, or just to enjoy the art on display year-round, drop by Table Rock Art Gallery, located at Claybough Plaza in Branson West, or call 417-272-1150. You can also mail your patron check to TRAG, P.O. Box 31, Kimberling City, MO 65686.


Kimberling Area Library is located at 45 Kimberling Blvd., Kimberling City. Plan now to spend some time at this educational and beautiful festival!
