Applications for this year’s Valley Artists’ Booth at the annual Mountain Fair in Carbondale are being accepted through Friday.

Amy Kimberly, executive director of Carbondale Arts, and Regna Jones, member of the Carbondale Arts' Board of Directors, discuss the organization's events and programs. 

Carbondale Arts Executive Director Amy Kimberly discusses the deep-rooted history of Carbondale Arts and how it has evolved from Carbondale's Mountain Fair into the multifaceted organization it is today. Board Chair Pam Rosenthal also contributes. 

Jess Worley is a Carbondale resident who grew up going to Mountain Fair. As she grew up, she learned to play bluegrass guitar. In 2010, her father, Bill “Willy” Worley, disappeared in the mountains near Redstone, and he was never seen again.
