3rd THURSDAYS ON 25TH STREET, FEBRUARY 16, 6-8 PM

We are excited to celebrate Black History Month and to announce we are dedicating a space in the gallery for rotating artworks that are for contemplation and in response to contemporary social issues. It will be be a place for visitors to view an array of artworks that express artists' perspectives to the social and or political climate of the day. We will provide seating, to encourage reflection. We are dedicating and naming the wall after the inspiring former Ohio Senator Nina Turner. The space will be designated and used for this purpose for an ongoing period. We hope you'll join us!

Explore the exhibit on Saturday, January 14 at 2PM, with artists Elizabeth Sher and Cyrus Tilton, along with William Harsh's widow Marilyn Bardet and Sam Smidt's daughter Becca Smidt, as they share how each artist used drawing in their practice and how, at times, it was a more freeing form of self expression than their usual medium.
