Posted 5/4/2017

Record Staff

The arts are alive in Hesston, with a gallery showing of local artists and guitarist Joe Crookston in concert on May 17 at Hesston Mennonite Church.

The event, The Art of Community, is free and open to all Hesstonians. Coordinated by John and Molly Simmering, along with the Hesston Community Foundation, with assistance from Ariana Kauffman of Schowalter Villa, the evening event is the capstone to several days of activities around Hesston, including presentations at Hesston Schools and at Schowalter Villa.  

“We want to affirm people that are being creative in those ways. We would love to see some mentoring opportunities, and just letting other artists see each others work.

“This isn’s so much about putting on a show as it is about providing an activity that brings people together,” said Molly Simmering.

John Simmering added while there will be artists presenting work, everyone can get into the spirit.
