DAVIDSON – Storm-related high winds on Friday made the tent-pitching process on the town green an artistic adventure all its own. But the fast-moving weather front left a clear-blue canvas in its wake, providing an ideal setting for a weekend filled with arts.

The three-day finale of the town’s annual April is for Arts celebration featured a variety of activities, including a gallery crawl and sculpture tour on Friday. And on Saturday and Sunday, artistic creations and hand-crafted items were the main attractions on the green, where the grounds were transformed into a tent village featuring the works of more than 50 artists and craftspeople. Show participants, exhibiting and selling paintings, photographs, ceramics, sculptures and more, were from throughout the Lake Norman area, the state and all along the East Coast.

Live music and local cuisine, along with various in-house artistic displays at businesses, were also a part of the celebration.

The full schedule of events and opportunities closed out on Sunday with the season-opening Concerts on the Green performance featuring the Davidson College Symphony Orchestra and Jazz Ensemble.
