BARNESVILLE - The final program of the 29th season of Showcase 2012 Concert Series in Barnesville is coming up on Thursday, Aug. 9, with a 7:30 p.m. show at Community Arts Place by Lacy & The Attitude Band from Cambridge. The performance will include new and traditional country mixed with classic rock-n-roll.

The Attitude Band has played at fairs, festivals, clubs, parties, etc. as the opening and headline act, while entertaining people of all ages. They have opened for Mark Wills, Blackhawk, Yankee Grey, Marshall Tucker Band, Phil Dirt & the Dozers, the late Johnny Paycheck and with Loretta Lynn's band and others. The group also plays at Wheeling Jamboree, U.S.A. when schedules permit.
Starting at 6:45 p.m. an exhibit by four Flushing artists will be displayed. Joyce Butts began oil and acrylic classes four and half years ago at the suggestion of a friend. Then three years ago she invited retired preschool teacher, Sue Milhorn, and Lafferty post mistress, Donna Turley, to join her for painting classes at Stifel Fine Arts Center in Wheeling.
Subject matter for Butts and Turley, who operates a floral shop on the side, is varied, while Milhorn prefers to do landscapes and waterscapes. Photographer, Robert Howell, joins them in displaying several favorite photos. All four have exhibited in several art shows in the area and have won ribbons for their works.
For forty years Howell has done weddings, school groups, been a newspaper photographer, besides taking photos during trips to the Bahamas, and Canada, as well as traveling two times to Europe. While working two years on the Belmont County History Book of 1988, he did 40 photos for the project.
A food stand will be open during the evening. Those coming to the program should bring lawn chairs.
In case of rain, events will be moved indoors to the Grange Hall on Shamrock Drive. Donations are appreciated.
