Lovers of the arts are invited to help celebrate the humanities and toast the publication of the latest issue of Cave Region Review: A Journal of Literary and Visual Art, published annually by North Arkansas College.

A launch reception for the journal’s most recent issue will be held Saturday, Nov. 19, from 11 a.m.- 4 p.m. in the L.E. “Gene” Durand Center on Northark’s Center Campus. Free copies of Cave Region Review will be available to guests as long as supplies last, as well as barbecue and door prizes.

Guests will be treated to live music and displays by local artists. Artists include Sandy Williams, Rita Szabo, Artists of the Ozarks, Christine Ayres, Dana Byrd, The Photography Club of the Ozarks, Kim and Joe Brecklein, and many more. Artist will be selling their wares, so this would be a good opportunity to get some Christmas shopping done.

Musicians include Opal Agafia & the Sweet Nothings, Farmer & the Markets, and others. Local craftsman Jon Dezort will be printing posters and shirts, and guests are encouraged to bring their own T-shirts and sweatshirts if they would like to have them printed that day.

Children are welcome at the family-friendly event. There will be several activities, such as face painting, jewelry making, and more.

The 2016 issue of Cave Region Review, the eighth volume of the journal, includes poetry, short stories, photography, and artwork by artists and writers from across the Ozarks region, as well as a few featured guests from outside the area.

Cave Region Review is supported in part by a grant from the Arkansas Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the reception is supported in part by the William P. & Susan Stiritz Endowed Chair in the Humanities.
