Multi-Generational Artwork To Be Showcased At Plymouth Primavera
The city of Plymouth is putting the finishing touches on its annual springtime celebration of the arts.
Plymouth Primavera is a collaboration between the city and the Plymouth Arts Council to showcase a collection of fine art.
“From sculptures to glasswork to paintings to mixed media, there’s a variety of opportunities and a variety of artists that will be here making sure that their work is seen to the community,” stated Kari Hemp, Plymouth Recreation Supervisor.
Plymouth Primavera received more than one hundred applications from regional artists.
All of the adult art submissions was juried by a committee.
In the end, 50 adult artists were chosen to exhibit their work, as well as 50 teen artists from area high schools.
The free event runs April 20th through April 23rd in the art gallery at the Plymouth Community Center.

Organizers say visitors can expect a weekend chock-full of activities beginning Thursday night.
“Primavera kicks off with Plymouth Reads, we’ll have author Matt Goldman here at 7:00 p.m. doing a presentation,” said Hemp. “On Friday, we will have the Wayzata Jazz Band performing at 6:00 p.m., followed by the awards ceremony at 7:00 p.m..”
On Saturday, the Plymouth Concert Band will be performing at 10:00 a.m., and there will be kid’s art activities later in the afternoon.
