Chair-inspired Creativity

Market Street Art Spot’s April opening reception showcased the three chairs to be raffled at the Minerva Art Foundation’s “Chair-ity” Fundraising Event the following night and a few of those to be included in the event’s silent auction. Raffle tickets were successfully sold out that night.  In addition to the chair preview, Resident Artists tapped into their creative souls to offer chair-inspired works of art which included pottery, paintings, photography, pen and ink drawings. a  wooden doll chair and an “upcycled” antique chair. While the raffled and auction chairs are no longer on display, the other works will be available through April until May 3rd. Make it a point to stop in at the Spot…you won’t be disappointed! MSAS is grateful to Tom Freeland for providing music at the opening reception and to Minerva Chamber of Commerce, which sponsored the evening.

Art that Tells a Story

Ask Fredlee Votaw about a particular piece of art he has created and he will tell you its story. “Doc Votaw” creates drawings, paintings and assemblages inspired by stories that have in some way touched his life. On display now through April 5th at the Market Street Art Spot in Minerva, are many of these stories. The exhibit opened on Friday, March 14th, with a great crowd of support. Light refreshments were served along with lively music performed by Beth Gray and Dennis Kempthorne. MSAS expresses sincere gratitude to the Village of Minerva for sponsoring the event.
