Three cheers letter: Harvest the Arts a growing success
Three cheers for agriculture, art and entertainment, which came together Sept. 22 for the Yuba-Sutter Regional Arts Council's first Harvest the Arts event. More than 100 artists, farmers, vintners, volunteers, "pop-up" performers, art and food lovers gathered at Gallery34 on D Street in Marysville.
Locally grown foods were provided by 30-plus farmers, along with wines, crafted beer, apple cider, peach tea and sweet treats. Many of the food samplings were prepared with the help of John Nicoletti, Yuba County supervisor and leader of the Yuba College Culinary Department's chefs.
Performers ranging from singers, ballerinas, salsa dancers and instrumentalists to an especially lively song and dance routine from Anything Goes, performed by the Marysville Charter Academy, wowed the crowd. Bret Corey also amused as he portrayed Edgar Allen Poe.
Bravo to the Harvest the Arts committee, volunteers, sponsors, council board members and staff for bringing together two integral parts of our community: agriculture and the arts.
Funds raised through ticket sales and cash donations will be used to support the many activities presented by the Yuba-Sutter Regional Arts Council.
