Old Home Day Art Show highlights local talent

The wonderful art and craft works on display at the Old Home Day Art Show pulled people in to view the show and listen to various musical talents and the electric fans enhanced the experience. The Carlisle School's Corey Dining Room was transformed into a gallery and performing arts center for a few hours on that hot and humid July 4. The craft corner, where high school volunteers painted faces and helped children express their artistic talents with craft projects, was a new feature this year.

The musicians corner began with the "Sudamer Chamber Trio," composed of Meredith Eaton, Daniel Hanken and Matthew Phillippo. The "Second Wind Quartet," featuring Ray Taylor, Kerry Kissinger, Jon Saphier and Roger Winsby, followed. Up next were piano ensembles by the students of Shelley Reeves including Makayal Barton, Julie Margolies, Maggie Prentice, Sofia Palmer, Emma Young, Tommy Veitch and Claudia Veitch. Sharing their school band talents were "The Seven Amigos," with Owen Callahan, Matthew Cheever, David Dawson, Philip Dumka, Zachary Lou, Jarrett Piette and Stephan Wu. Last, but not least, was Santo Pullara playing the piano as the art show crowd began to disperse.
