June Art Exhibit, Market at the Wass

The 62nd annual Wassenberg Art Exhibit opened on June 9 and will be on view through July 8. If you haven’t had a chance to peruse and invest in great art that is available for purchase.

Woodland Sky Group will perform two Pow Wow performances at Town Creek Live 2018.

Market at the Wass is back this Saturday, June 23, with eight vendors selling fruits, veggies, eggs, baked goods, artisan items, and much more! The market continues through August 25 and vendor spaces are still available! Markets will begin at 9 a.m. and close up at 1 p.m. Good eating is an art!

While you are at the market, be sure to adopt your ducks for Town Creek Live 2018! Ducks adoptions are $5 each or $25 for a six-piece “quack pack”. This year the free festival will host Woodland Sky Group PowWow, the Twenty Fives of Toledo, and U.R.B. of Fort Wayne. Scrubby Bubble Sound Car will be glowing and thumping around and giving rides, while inside there will be an interactive art exhibit created by the community; an indoor field of artfully crafted sunflowers. Gourmet food trucks will be on hand and art activities will abound. Mark your calendars for July 21. from 3 p.m.-midnight.

Our first summer camp is history. However two more separate summer camps are coming up! Each session will offer different, thought provoking projects such as Squiggle wire portraits, felted bugs, monster masks, life-size sunflowers and mandalas. Instructor Emilie Fisher, BFA from the University of Saint Francis, is an experienced summer art camp instructor. Emilie has taught the last few years at notable camps in Indiana and Ohio.
