“Destination ARTS!” activities continue in Waynesboro with special events and live music scheduled at Gallery 50, Gallery 20 East and 42 West ARTS Co-Op. The Ceramic Arts Center of Waynesboro and The Contemporary School of the Arts & Gallery will also have art and pottery for sale and art classes available.
“Wine Down Friday” receptions, featuring live music, wine and light refreshments, are scheduled from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Gallery 50, Gallery 20 East, 42 West ARTS Co-Op and The Ceramic Arts Center of Waynesboro. All musical performances set for inside of the galleries will begin at 5:30.
The American folk tunes of Tom Jolin can be heard at the reception inside of Gallery 50. A founding member of The West Orrtanna String Band, Jolin has also performed with The Orrtanna Mountain Steamers and The Barnstormers. He has recorded several albums, but on Friday night, he’ll use his dulcimer to create live music for an audience to enjoy.
Laura Shindle takes a turn at the co-op on Saturday afternoon. Originally from Hagerstown, Shindle attended The Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Fla. and now works with oils, pen and ink and printmaking. She’ll demonstrate how to create a still-life painting using watercolors between the hours of 1:00 and 3:00.
Donna Bingaman will offer another series of painting classes at 42 West ARTS Co-Op for three straight weeks starting on Saturday, April 4. The fine artist plans to teach her students how to create art using a variety of compositions, colors and values. All of the classes are scheduled from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Anyone interested in participating is asked to call 717-762-8394.
These performances are supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
