July and August are busy times of the year for Sanders County and many events have been occurring annually for years, including the Artists in Paradise.

Entering its sixth year, it has many exciting things planned for event goers.

Artists in Paradise will take place this week Thursday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Paradise Center in Paradise.

There will be about nine booths with artists from all over Sanders County featuring a host of artistic variety and style, from woodcarving to pottery, jewelry to rock art and paintings to everything in between.

Though many artists will be returning this year there will be several newcomers, including Malachi Paulsen with his graphite art. He recently graduated from Plains High School and is serious about his art and is mostly self-taught.

Also, new this year, the woodcarvers group from Plains will be entering as a group instead of individually as several members have in the past. Many artists will be selling projects, prints and more as well as performing their arts during the event, so visitors can see them in the process of demonstrating their crafts.

There will also be live music performed by Hot Springs flute player Chalaili Wachiwi, an incredible musician who crafts her own flutes.

The Paradise Center will also be open to tours on the days of the event. All those who work for the art council are volunteers and put on this show every year for the local communities.

If anyone is interested in volunteering for this or other events, or just getting involved, more information can be found at the Sanders County Arts Councilís website: www.sanderscountyarts.com. More information on the event can be found at that website as well.
