CARTHAGE, Mo. —
Art, music and other activities are scheduled Friday when a new season of the Carthage Art Walk opens on the courthouse square.

A reception also is set for 6 p.m. at Hyde House gallery, 1110 E. 13th St., to mark the opening of an exhibit by two area artists.
Cherry’s Art Emporium on the square will feature the timed painting event. Three artists each will start with a canvas, paint for a specified period, and then pass the work to the next artist until all three have contributed to each painting. Artists participating will be April Davis Brunner, Kristen Huke and Tom Jones.
It’s Fancy, in the former Carthage Press building, will showcase a variety of working printing presses. Visitors also may watch as Cody Lankford makes prints from an antique printing press from 1896.
