Just a few weeks to go until the latest exhibit opens at the Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council's The Arts Garage (TAG) in Port Clinton - featuring a native of Port Clinton's works.
"Urban Folkart" by Keith Fleming, will be the second gallery exhibit of 2023, showcasing Fleming's colorful, one-of-a-kind pieces and a flurry of entertainment.
The exhibit kicks off with an opening reception and 'fun-raiser' on Saturday February 11, 2023 at 7pm.
This can't-miss event will feature a silent auction, cash bar, 50/50 raffle, heavy hors d'oeuvres, music and more.
The event will be hosted by Keith and Jen Nickel, along with possible special guests.
All proceeds from Fleming’s art sales and other paid events of the evening will benefit the GPCAAC’s youth programming.
The Arts Garage is located in the city's old maintenance garage at 317 W. Perry Street in Port Clinton.
If you can't attend the opening reception, please visit TAG during our normal business hours which are Wednesday through Sunday, from 11am until 4pm or by appointment. TAG is closed on Monday and Tuesday.
