"Moments and Memories" debut at TAG on 3/31!

The Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council is excited to announce the next exhibit at The Arts Garage (TAG) this spring: the dynamic works of two local resident artists – Steve and Linda Kelley.

“Moments and Memories: A Journey through Light and Shadows” will be on display at TAG from March 31, 2023, until April 24, 2023.

“Moments” represents insights into what the Kelley’s have valued in their life around water, Linda said.

“It is an opportunity to share the drama of this environment as well as the sometimes overlooked beauty of seemingly insignificant, common elements,” she said.

An opening reception will be held at TAG on Friday March 31, 2023, at 6pm.
