Hollis Mentzer will be at 42 West ARTS Co-Op on Saturday to lead a demonstration about nature printing on paper. After maintaining a pottery studio for 20 years, Mentzer developed an interest in papermaking. He now attempts to convey the simplicity and complexity of natural forms using dried and compressed plant specimens. The process can be seen in action between the hours of 1:00 and 3:00 p.m.

DrewAdamsAfter making his much-anticipated “Destination ARTS!” debut in Center Square last August, Drew Adams returns to Downtown Waynesboro for a special performance in Gallery 20 East on Sunday afternoon. A founding member of the band, Good for Nothing (later Dimestore Profit), Adams has since gone on to play shows throughout the region as a member of the Drew Adams Project and On Tap. This weekend, he’ll be at the microphone from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.

These performances are supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
