"We will have a wonderful selection of work for viewing, including water colors, stained glass, mixed media, pencil drawings and photography."

In addition, there will be a watercolor art station for children, music provided by students from the Bill Chapin Jazz Studio and refreshments donated by Something's Brewing.
