SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. -A "cross-fertilization" of art forms will converge Friday and Saturday during the Art Farm Performance Cafe.
The Art Farm Performance Cafe, held at the War Memorial Building on German Street in Shepherdstown, will feature a range of artistry - performances by poets, singers, musicians and dancers.
Art Farm aims to showcase the depth of the local performance arts scene in a "not too elitist setting," said organizer Kitty Clark, who started the series six years ago with her husband, Cam Millar. The show is produced by Clark and Millar's nonprofit performance group, Goose Route Arts Collaborative.
Clark said the name "Art Farm" came from something her mother said to her as a child: "I always liked to dance, and I really enjoyed rural life, being in nature, when I was little," Clark said. "So, one day, my mom said to me, 'Oh, I know what you're going to do when you grow up. You're going to dance on a farm.'"
