The Library’s art gallery in the building’s lower level is Huron’s one and only public art space. Local artists and artisans utilize the gallery to display their paintings, drawings, photographs, crafts and other works of art. To inquire about displaying your art in the gallery, please contact Wendy Bromfield at 419-433-5009.
The paintings displayed this month are from local student artists who attend the watercolor classes taught by Clela Neale at the Zion Lutheran Christian Center on Wednesdays from 10 am - 12:30 pm. The painters are all ages, skill levels, and use various watercolor techniques. They also paint a wide variety of subjects. There will be an opening reception for them on Thursday, November 1 at 6:30 pm. You are invited to view the paintings exhibited, enjoy some refreshments, and chat with the artists. (Interested in classes? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.)
