Get out to Galion and enjoy all the art tonight!
Portrait Artists of Mid-Ohio
The Portrait Artists of Mid-Ohio group gets together once a month at Henne’s Drafting and Art Supply located in Mansfield, Ohio. They hold portrait challenges, have guest speakers, and talk about painting portraits. If you’re interested, please visit HenneArt.com for more information.
From June 13th to June 30th, the Brush & Palette Art Gallery will host the Crawford County Arts Council in their June show. Members of the Arts Council featured in the show will be available for a “Meet and Greet” on Friday, June 12th from 4 to 8pm. Regular hours are Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 6pm.
Sharon’s “Fat Cat” and “Sunlit” will be on display as part of the show. Both originals are available for purchase. Or you can purchase either in print format from Fine Art America.
The Crawford County Arts Council was organized by community artists in 2013. Its purpose is to strengthen the community through the arts. Sharon, a member of the council, is excited to be a part of an organization that promotes and supports all art forms, including music and theater as well as drawing and painting.
In addition to paintings, CCAC members will have pottery on display in the Brush & Palette Art Show.
The Art Gallery is located between Market Street and Columbus Street in the rear of 114 Harding Way East in Galion.
