Art Center Portrait Group to resume meetings Friday, Oct. 8, 9:30 am

This Art Center member group specializes in portraiture. They meet every Friday from 9:30 a.m. to Noon year-round in the A&E Building.
The group paints with a different live model each week for a small fee from each member for the model. At the end of each session, a critique is held to support and improve the works. All levels of experience and media are welcome. The model sits for three 25 minute sessions with an additional 10 minutes if needed. New members are welcome. Join in the camaraderie of like-minded artists. Members check-in at the door and guests may attend for their first visit at no charge. The group leader is artist, John Bescher.


Postponement of Activities at the Art Center

Out of an abundance of caution and to protect our patrons and volunteers, the Art Center and the Chamber of Commerce have agreed to postpone the mixer scheduled for March 19. We are also postponing opening “Will You Still Love Me in the Morning” which was scheduled to open March 20 for a three weekend run. The upcoming art exhibition will be postponed until a new date is set for opening “Will You Still Love Me in the Morning” and the exhibit on display will remain on display until then.  We will continue to follow guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state and local health officials in setting future schedules for opening the play and for other activities at the Art Center.
