Art show, with music, shows off Carlisle talent

Magic was in the air at the Old Home Day art show, as artists of all ages displayed their talents to an appreciative audience in the Carlisle School's Corey dining room.

Citizens viewing of the artwork were serenaded by Carlisle's talented musicians, including Bill Brown on fiddle, guitar duo John and Lisa Weisner, and the "Second Wind," an a capella quartet featuring the voices of Ray Taylor, Kerry Kissinger, Jon Saphier and Roger Winsby. Shelley Reeves and her students, Basil and Beth Bourque, shared their piano music. Demonstrating their school band skills were the "Rolling Pebbles," including Clark Bakewell, Cam Bjork, Owen Callahan, Matthew Cheever, David Dawson, Philip Dumka, Zachary Lou, Kate Ostrowski, Jarrett Piette. Melissa Weiksnar played her cello artfully.

Judging the many works was a challenging job. Judges Betsy Hazelton, Nat Bard and Suzanne Winsby awarded blue ribbons to the following:

· Grades K-4: Amanda Sargent and Katrina Puffer

Grades 5-8: Olivia Cooney and Lauren Means

· Grades 9-12: Eric Ventura and Carly Saylor

· Adult: Lynda Bazin and Nancy Kronenberg

The Best of Show rosette went to Carly Saylor's pottery birdhouse entitled "Time for the Birds."

Viewers were asked to vote for their favorite artworks. Most votes were garnered by Julia Blum's untitled work consisting of individually painted leaves.
