Winter Blues

Got the Winter Blues?

Here’s a reason to smile!

The third annual Community Arts Festival in Holly Springs, dubbed Winter Blues, is underway now through Saturday at the town’s Cultural Arts Center.

“We are so excited about the 2015 Community Arts Festival,” said Brenda Priest, president of the Holly Springs Arts Council. “Our theme this year, Winter Blues, allows us to highlight a wonderful local musician, and also allows our artists many avenues to explore art within this subject.”

Offering art classes, exhibitions, meet-and-greet with artists, and an arts and crafts fair, this year’s celebration also features renowned Delta Blues artist and music historian Scott Ainslie.

Attendees can vote for their favorite young student’s visual arts and writing pieces, and watch student performances of dance, theater, band and chorus.

In addition to arts offerings, Winter Blues includes food trucks, plus a gala fundraiser on Saturday night with hors d’oeuvres from Little Hen Restaurant.

Tickets for the gala, which runs Saturday night from 7 to 10, are $15 in advance or $20 at the door, and are available via the Cultural Center box office at (919) 567-4000 or online at
