On August 12, 6 p.m. we are featuring large format works by art students from Bowling Green State University.

Works by Etta Gallaway, Tiarra Tufts and Isabel Wolke will be on exhibit and for sale through September 12. There will be free appetizers, a cash bar and live blues by Maxwell Park and Aeddon Cartwright.

How fun was that? Van Wert Manor and the Wass hosted a free, open to the public, outdoor movie last Thursday during our regular Art & Pint Nights. We showed the Sandlot and had a themed craft table. Thanks to all who came out! Look for more outdoor movie nights under the stars soon!
