March 13th marked a new exhibit opening at the Market Street Art Spot featuring stained-glass artist, JoAnn Bower. On hand providing musical entertainment was Rock, Salt and Nails from Alliance, Ohio. If you had to miss the opening, there is still time to view Bower’s colorful glassworks. The show closes Saturday, April 4th, so be sure to stop by before then! Gallery hours are Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 1 to 6 pm and Saturday from 10 to 4. MSAS thanks Minerva Area Federal Credit Union for sponsoring the March reception.
Make plans now to join us and meet the artist. Opening reception is Friday, March 13th from 5:00 to 9:00 pm. Music provided by Rock, Salt & Nails Sponsored by Minerva Area Federal Credit Union
Friday, the 13th…not an unlucky night for the Art Spot! Even though it was cold outside, inside the gallery was warmed by friends and patrons who stopped in to join in celebrating our Four Year Anniversary! Featured Artists this month are our very own Resident Artists (Marty Chapman, Laura Donnelly, Michelle Mulligan, Judith Singer) and intern, Isaac Stanley. Also, this month we welcome new Resident Artist, silversmith/jewelry designer – Joli Arko-Fichter – another great reason to celebrate! Tom Freeland was on hand with lively music enhanced by Amie Fankhouser’s lovely vocals (and an occasional few notes from Dan Donnelly)! MSAS is grateful for this month’s sponsor, the Minerva YMCA. Thank you, to all who came in to celebrate with us!
MSAS will be celebrating our FOURTH Anniversary on Friday, February 13th!
Join Resident Artists, Marty Chapman, Laura Donnelly, Michelle Mulligan and Judie Singer in welcoming our NEW Resident Artist –
silversmith artisan, Joli Fichter!
