Aug. 07--Mile of Music isn't just showcasing musical performances over the next four days. One new feature opening tonight is a pop-up exhibit showing off works from fine artists in ceramics, painting, etching and sculpture.
Feather & Bone is a "one-off" gallery, meaning it takes place once and is not repeated. The temporary gallery is set up through Sunday in the former Northstar Contracting building in downtown Appleton. It's accessible from 620 W. Lawrence St. or through the College Avenue side parking lot of the former Tastee Bakery.
Admission is free.

The theme of the show is "Lumberwoods," and 27 participating artists submitted original works celebrating mythical North American creatures, including Wisconsin's hodags and hugags.
"It's based on the 'Fearsome Creatures of the Lumberwoods,' a book written in the early 1900s based on folklore and lumberjack stories," organizer John Adams said. "The works are all over the board -- paper sculpture, watercolor, acrylic and collage. Ninety percent of the artists are Fox Cities based or are from here originally."
Artists include Chad Brady, Ryan Myers and Cori Bartz.
The large garage also will be used as a musical performance space with bands set on top of a parade float stored there. Photographer Dave Jackson is using the mezzanine space to photograph bands during the festival.

Hours: 5 to 9 p.m. today, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
