It’s talent time in Rhinecliff

Got a secret yearning to show off your talents?

Are you a visual artist, a musician, a juggler maybe?

Then the Morton Library’s fourth annual talent show in Rhinecliff may well be your ticket to fame.

Billed as an “evening of jokes, one-man bands, storytelling, guitar playing, dance – you name it,” the show will feature community members who obviously have no fear.

The event takes place Fri., March 1 starting at 6pm. But the organizers, from the Morton Memorial Library and Community House, hope to get the talent lined up by Feb. 2.

“If you are a visual artist, bring work that you would like to have displayed and possibly purchased by an admiring audience member. If you are a musician or have musical aspirations, be prepared to regale with song (piano provided). If you can talk a blue streak while juggling and playing the saw, then bring it on, and if you can create an edible masterpiece, we can most certainly promise a truly appreciative audience. We even have a projection system for showing short films — no more than 3 minutes, please. Any and all types of creative expression — especially the odd and quirky — are welcomed and embraced,” said Sandy Bartlett, assistant library director, in a library news release. Any visual art submitted will remain on display in Morton Hall for the month of March.

So sign up, for whatever, with Bartlett at

And let her have the final word. “This show and our community are all about enjoyment and camaraderie — no judgment!” she said.
