“In God’s Pocket”: The History of Our Lady of the Ozarks Shrine

Friday, November 15, 9:00am

Presented by Juana Young and MaryAnn Kahmann

The remarkable story of the only Catholic shrine in Arkansas.

To tell the Shrine’s story, local authors Mary Ann Kahmann and Juana Young draw upon the memories and attics of area residents as well as historic photos, documents, and artifacts recovered and discovered from parish and diocesan archives. Their presentation includes an overview of the history of the Shrine and the adventures they had in tracking down the bits and pieces that make up the Shrine’s story. After the presentation guests will be able to take a guided tour of the shrine.

Free and open to the public. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.

Letterpress & Letter Writing Holiday Cards

Saturday, November 23, noon-2pm

Presented by Amber Perrodin

Wow your friends and family by sending them a hand printed letterpress card this year! Each class member will get to letterpress their very own set of six cards using a 1920’s vintage letterpress “line-o-scribe” card writer.

We will print each card by hand using an old style machine that will leave a nice bold text and “impression” into the paper so that you can feel the indention of the print. You will receive six cards, six envelopes, and six stamps so that you can print, write, and mail your holiday cards off by the end of the class! No experience is necessary.

The Clay Collective Show and Sale

Through November 28

Join the artists of the The Clay Collective for a show and sale at Ozark Folkways. Members will be displaying their work in the sun porch of Ozark Folkways, with original, handmade pottery items available for purchase. The work appearing in this show will range from utilitarian to whimsical to sophisticated.

The Clay Collective is a spirited and diverse group of both professional and hobby potters, brought together by their love of all things clay. Based in Northwest Arkansas this social club thrives on being able to share their knowledge, techniques and to offer fun and functional wares at exhibits thought out the state.

The opening reception will take place on Saturday, October 5th, from 6pm-9pm, with snacks and drinks and an opportunity to meet the artists. Work will remain on display through November.

Ozark Folkways is open to the public from Thursday through Saturday, 10 am – 5 pm, and Sunday, Noon-4pm.

Community Playdate

Fourth Sunday of every month, 2-3pm

For infants and toddlers, aged 0 – 4 years

We’ll read a few books, swap stories (or clothes) and hang out!

This event is free and open to the public (but you’re welcome to stick a couple of bucks in the tip jar to help support the mission of Ozark Folkways to preserve, develop, instruct, and celebrate the arts, crafts, and music of our region.)

Jam with the Squirrels

Fourth Sunday of every month, 5-7pm

Presented by Winslow Squirrel Jam

Join Winslow Squirrel Jam for an evening of music in the front room at Ozark Folkways. Bring an instrument, a singing voice, or just be prepared to do a little toe-tapping and hand-clapping. The songs are all familiar favorites, and lyrics and chord symbols will be projected on the big screen; everybody is encouraged to join in!

Most of the jammers have only been playing their instruments for a couple of years or less, so this is not a group that is going to intimidate a beginner — at the same time, experienced players will find themselves in a welcoming environment where their ability is recognized and appreciated. There’s something for everybody.

If you like, bring a snack and a beverage; this is not a concert, but rather a gathering of friends and neighbors looking to enjoy an evening of music and good company.

Admission is free to the public, although we encourage you to drop a few bucks in the tip jar to help pay the bills. For more information, just give us a call at 479-634-3791 or email us at info@ozarkfolkways.org.
