We’ve been hearing from more and more friends and readers that they’d like to know where we’re going each week so they can join us. We get invited to events, hear about fun exhibits and are interested in lots of different places all the time. Here’s what is on our radar this week. We can’t guarantee that we’ll go to all these places but there’s a good chance we’ll be at some of these. Support local arts or get outside and do something with us.

Exploration in Art is a journey inspired by and facilitated by professional artist and instructor, Bojana Coklyat, under the direction of Art House Executive Director, Christine Goodman. There will be live music by the students in the program.
