The Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council is featuring a new dual exhibit from two talented area artists at The Arts Garage this July and is inviting the public to come check it out!
Both “Rock the Night Away” by Dave Ostheimer and “Capturing Nature through My Lens” by Susan Prentice will be opening with a reception on Friday July 8, 2022 at 6pm at TAG.
Dave Ostheimer’s eclectic work ranges from airbrush, pencil, ink, watercolor, oil, acrylic all the way to charcoal.
His commissioned work can be found on cars, motorcycles, helmets, dragsters, canvas and tattoos. He's self taught and dabbles in other unique projects when time allows.
"You name it, he's probably worked on it," his wife Sandye said.
Susan Prentice focuses primarily on landscape and nature photography, always looking for a way to see things differently, she said.
Prentice considers photography to be her lifesaver, a creative outlet and a passion. Recently she began dabbling in painting, with the guidance of a talented friend and teacher.
“There is so much beauty we see every day but pay no attention to,” she said.
She said she never passes up an opportunity to meet new people and try new things.
"If you keep learning, you never grow old," she said.
Everyone is invited to come to the reception and meet the artists, learn about their work and craft as well as check out The Arts Garage, which is home to more than a dozen artists in residence.
The Arts Garage is located in the old city garage at 317 W. Perry Street in Port Clinton.
The Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council is a registered 501©3 nonprofit organization founded in 2009 to provide the communities of Ottawa County support in fostering a cooperative effort between artists and the public to promote the creative arts in our region.
