Over 1,000 people attended the Arts Council Menifee’s Third Annual Showcase May 18 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Menifee Countryside Marketplace at the corner of Newport and Haun Road.

The Arts Council Menifee is a non-profit cultural and educational agency that is dedicated to supporting the area’s visual arts, music, theater, dance, film, and literary arts, as well as bringing the arts to the community of Menifee and local artists to the public.

There were over 100 performers and artists that showcased their talents through painting and performing arts, which included dancing and singing, playing instruments, photography, pottery, and much more.

Award winning photographer, Walter Santos, attended the events, displaying some of his incredible and stunning photos. Santos has been a photographer for the past eight years and has his work displayed throughout Southern California, with most recently at the San Diego Natural History Museum. He hopes that his "images will inspire the viewer to help preserve our natural world."

Santa Rosa Academy Drama Club, the Heritage High School Dance Troupe, the Krimson Jewels, a group of belly dancers, the Junior Reed Band, and the Alias Movement, a dance troupe with a modern repertoire, performed at the Center Stage. Attendees of the event gathered around the center stage in awe of all the performers and performances. At the North Stage, located near the Pond, attendees were able to enjoy musical performances which included "Mr. Paul" the singing storyteller, songs of the Ol’ West, and "Word Play" Poetry Club from the Sun City Library.

Adults and children were encouraged to make glass-fused pendants in front of the Painted Earth located inside the marketplace. Another activity that children were able to participate in was chalk art sponsored by Heritage High School and the Arts Council. Children were able to display their talents and create masterpieces of their own.
