The Iron Mountain Train Depot, the old Post Office and the Newport Business Resource Center will open at 10:30 a.m., and several artists will be working at their booths.

Irwin, upcycling and altered art; Ariston Jacks, creativity in drawing; Arlette Miller, watercolor; Sally Papich, acrylic painting; Dewana McIntosh, photo transfer techniques; Emmanuel Fitz, drawing structures; and Frank Plegge, basic photography.
