COLUMBIA — A weekend of art, music and education takes place Saturday and Sunday during Fall Into Art at the Parkade Center.

The free event features more than 40 artists from all over Missouri showing and selling their work.

Fall Into Art also includes loom weaving, carpet hooking, pumpkin painting, woodworking and pottery wheel demonstrations.

A wide array of music will be played all weekend, from piano and guitar to a jazz ensemble.

Fall Into Art brings together a variety of artwork: glass, jewelry, painting, pastels, photographs, mixed media, ceramics and wood. Visitors will be able to talk directly with the artists.

"I feel like I'm more successful selling my art directly rather than through an agent or a gallery because I can tell a story about each piece," said Lorraine McFarlane, who creates pastels and will participate this year in her first Fall Into Art.

"Knowing the collector is interested in the story makes it easier for me to let the piece go," she said.

Fall Into Art began three years ago after the city stopped assembling its annual art show. The nonprofit, artist-run event was organized to fill the void.

"People miss that art show and the artists miss that show and I think Columbia misses that show," said Kay Foley, a director for the event and local mixed media artist.

"We wanted to bring back a fall art show to Columbia."

A list of artists and musicians participating in the event can be found on the Fall Into Art website.

Supervising editor is Jeanne Abbott.
