Thirteen local, county celebrities created wonderful works of art in several different media forms including wood, rice paper, clay, oils, canvas paints and even magazines. All the art work is on display at the Gallery next to the Holland Theater in Downtown Bellefontaine between now and February 3rd.
The public is invited, and encouraged to vote for their favorite piece Monday through Friday during the hours of 11:30am to 1:30pm and 3:30pm to 5:30pm. Voting is a mere $1 per vote and there are no restrictions on the number of times you can vote. All the proceeds benefit the Logan County Art League.
On Friday, February 3rd, the Celebration Dinner of the 2017 Not So Bad Art by Good People fundraiser will take place at the Holland Theatre, where doors will open at 5pm for drinks, conversation and continued voting. A catered dinner will be served at 6pm for those who wish to reserve a seat and the art auction begins at 7pm.
