The Norse god Ullr may be withholding the fluffy white stuff from our fair climes, but the endless sunny weather has apparently inspired Greek deity Apollo, god of the arts.
First Thursday Art Walk
Over the next several days, there are at least a dozen artistic events across this region worth your time; more, if you add in all the first First Thursday Art Walk exhibits on display in downtown Telluride tonight, from 5-8 p.m. Among the highlights are “Body of Work,” the Ah Haa School’s annual juried regional exhibit which celebrates the human form. Four cash prizes will be awarded to local artists whose work is on display at the depot; Baerbel Hacke, Julie McNair and David Holbrooke will be the judges.
Nor are humans the only ones whose forms will be celebrated: equines get their turn as well, in two exhibits from Telluride Arts. Nancy B. Frank depicts horses in her figurative paintings at Gallery 81435, and Lara Branca evokes them abstractly, against a backdrop of sprawling landscapes..
By Emma Hardy, Correspondent Art, music and a fireworks display will dazzle downtown Springfield for the 31st year in a row this Sunday.
The annual First Night Springfield has been a local tradition since its inception on New Year’s Eve in 1987. Now, 31 years later, the celebration continues to be a Springfield favorite. The event serves as a non-alcoholic, family-friendly event to kick off the new year with a celebration of the arts.
“We’re bringing the arts downtown, and I think that’s an important thing. It helps make downtown more vibrant if we’ve got artistic events going on, and this is part of that,” said Mark Pence, event coordinator for First Night.
The celebration kicks off at 1 p.m. at Springfield High School, where First Night will be offering a wide array of free children’s activities until 4 p.m. The venue will include crafting, face painting, puppet shows, clay sculptures, a giant canvas painting and much more.
But fun doesn’t stop at Springfield High School. The Hoog..
Polyrhythmics, Kalu & the Electric Joint at the Mohawk indoor. The sprawling jams of Seattle groove collective Polyrhythmics will make you move, but hometown opener Kalu & the Electric Joint, the new project from Nigerian expat Kalu James, is also a big draw. The group’s latest release, ‘Time Undone,” simmers a slow burning dish of love and longing into a murky stew of muscular psychedelics, gut-bucket blues riffs and rootsy soul. $12-$15. Doors at 9 p.m. Saturday. 912 Red River St. mohawkaustin.com. — Deborah Sengupta Stith
“Bella and the Beast.” This Austin Symphony Orchestra concert features Bulgarian violinist Bella Hristova.

Supersized puppets in the form of prehistoric creatures battled aliens on the lawn of the National Museum as part of the Singapore Night Festival 2016, as throngs of festival-goers gathered to watch the spectacle unfold overhead.
Free arts and culture events, such as this, attracted a record attendance of 9.2 million last year - a five-year high - according to statistics from the Singapore Cultural Statistics 2017 report, released last week.
In isolation, the data could indicate a growing appetite for arts and cultural events here, but the report also showed a dip in attendance at ticketed performing arts events.
This raises the question of whether there are just too many shows here and if free shows are starting to cannibalise paid performances.
TOO MANY EVENTS, TOO LITTLE TIMEIn the arts community and among arts-goers, the general sentiment is that "there are too many events and festivals in Singapore", said Ms Audrey Wong, head of the school of creative industries at Lasalle College..
