As we move more of our activities indoors, the new season of arts at Montpelier begins at the Arts Center. On Saturday, Oct. 10, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., come celebrate at the Montpelier Fall Festival. Young artists can decorate pumpkins, create crafts with an autumn theme and have faces painted. Admission is free and for all ages. Be sure to bring your own pumpkin and a paper bag to hold all the crafts. The Arts Center also has several exhibits on display. In the Main Gallery is "Chaotic Attractions: Fractal Art of Abdi Darai." The Library Gallery is showing "Unique Visions," by Richard Paul Weiblinger. The Resident Artist Gallery presents the Montpelier Instructors Showcase, featuring works by those who have nurtured the talents of students from the local community. All three exhibits run until Nov 1. Admission is free. For information and directions, call 301-377-7800.
