Paradise City Arts Festival

Wooden boxes as smooth as leather-bound books, glass melted and pulled into vines, embroidered landscapes as fine as paintings — Memorial Day weekend brings the Paradise City Arts Festival to Northampton.

In the photo at the top, Cake n’ Chit-Chat, Dwight Baird walks the backstreets of Havana, Cuba. This is one in a series of paintings with old men playing dominos and rolling cigars, women dancing to a Latin beat in doorways, and vintage cars rolling down the road. (Photo courtesy of Paradise City)
