What's Happening!

Patricia Bender Exhibit

We have a new artist-member exhibit on our wall at the Arts Council. Patricia Bender's "Just Outside my Front Door" is an intimate collection of photographs that beg the viewer to come closer. Stop in to the Arts Council office on Turner St. in Old Town and view her work.
