Fiber School is Filling up FAST!

There was some confusion earlier with the way the buttons were set up! Doubles and private rooms (except for the Time Out room, $50 extra, half the normal private surcharge) are sold out, but group rooms (hostel-style) are still available. They’re $50 less, so you’ll even save a little scratch!

Hooray Prom!

Prom was double-plus awesome this year! Thanks so much to everyone who came out to shake their money makers, and extra special cherry-topped thanks to The Royal Butchers, Howie Pyro, and Kid Congo and the Pink Monkeybirds, as well as their charming partners, who formed the excellent decorations committee. It was a rare treat!

Send me a link to your pictures so I can post them! My few pictures were awful, thanks to my broken camera. Broken camera + alcohol + garage rock freakout = ill-framed and fuzzy pictures.

PROM IS BACK MAY 29!

PROM IS BACK! The Harveyville Project’s 2010 Prom will be Saturday, May 29!

This year’s prom rates extra special thrills!  Kid Congo and the Pink Monkey Birds and special guests The Royal Butchers will perform, and the inimitable Jason Ward will record it for a live record on In the Red.

Dinner’s at 8 and the bands start after dark (9.30 or so). Wear your prom finery and dancing shoes and prepare to get some fries with that shake! (Ass-shaking optional; wallflowers also welcome.)

Tickets on sale soon. Email Nikol (nikol at harveyvilleproject dot com) if you want an email when tickets go live.

If you’ve never been to our prom, it’s just like the high school prom you avoided–or maybe more like the gymnasium-in-streamers prom from your favorite 80s teen movie–but without the chaperons and teachers and all the a-holes you went to school with. Out-of-state guests get priority for overnight rooms.

Pasture-izing

The fire department burned our back pasture this weekend. We were trying to burn off some of the brush that got in the way of haying last year. The front half of the pasture was in good shape and already greening up nicely, so they left it alone.

Pinhole Photography Exhibit

Opening Reception with
Weenie & Watermelon Feed

Friday, August 28, 7-9 pm
at The Harveyville Project

Learn how the matchbox cameras were made!
Grilled weenies and watermelon served!

Works on display Friday 7-10pm and Saturday noon – 4pm
Exhibit moves to Mission Valley the following week

Earlier this month, workshop participants fabricated their own homemade pinhole cameras. These simple cameras, made with a matchbox, film, and electrical tape-and with no lens or mechanical shutter-create beautiful, sometimes distorted, and dream-like pictures. We’ll display selections from participants of all ages, and show how the cameras were made. Roasted weenies, cold watermelon, and iced tea will be served. Everyone welcome!

Refreshments compliments of The Harveyville Project. Art Share is presented by the City of Harveyville and funded entirely by volunteer donations and a grant from the Kansas Arts Commission.
