VERSAILLES — Sunday, July 9 will bring something new to the Versailles Area Museum in something we are calling a “Celebration of the Arts.”
This special day will feature the talents of the Darke County Art Guild. This group of some 60-plus members dedicate themselves to improving their artistic talents through classes, presentations and continuing work at their craft. From 1 to 4 p.m., members will be painting or sketching at the museum, inside and out of doors as weather permits. What a wonderful opportunity to watch these talented folks create museum artifacts worthy of the next generation!
To enhance your afternoon, why not bring your lawn chairs and sit a spell in our shady lawn? We will also be featuring our ice cream social with delicious sweet treats to enjoy. This fundraiser enables the museum to continue its many new displays and events and we value your support.
Remember, as an added treat, our Local Artist’s display featuring various art mediums will be open. Included in this new display will be the pottery of Marilyn Gerling Barge, and oils by local artist Carolyn Armstrong. We also honor local theatre icons Esther Pittsenbarger and Dale and Alnora Snedeker. Music has been a part of all our area communities through the years. Community bands and other groups have kept toes tapping and folks dancing since they came to this area. If you have memorabilia or ideas for this room, please share with us as we continue to develop this area.
We hope you’ll join us for this fun, new event with your attendance and support.
