Varied Perspectives, our current exhibit will be on view through September 12. These remarkable, large format works are created by art students from Bowling Green State University. The group of paintings are based on explorations of atmosphere, diversity in education and life after a pandemic. Etta Gallaway, Tiarra Tufts and Isabel Wolke have reasonably priced their work and would be a great addition to any collection.

Watercolor Class: (in-house and ongoing) Tuesday mornings; 10 a.m. – noon. Fee: $55 Regular, $40 WAC member cost. Instructor: Pat Rayman.
