The events are free and open to the public.

Hosting the reception and providing the refreshments will be members of the Friday Club. During the reception there will also be a tasting of small batch beers made by Miki Kunitake.

“Small Paintings from the Edge of the Woods,” an exhibit of 52 oil paintings, each 12 inches square by H.M. Levan will be in the Main Gallery.

In the Atrium Gallery will be an exhibit of clay and marble sculptures. Thirteen students in the Sculpture and Advanced Sculpture courses taught by Mansfield University Department of Art Adjunct Professor Alan Bennett completed these works in the fall 2017 semester.

During the semester, the students sculpted clay into self-portraits and a variety of other subjects such as a human torso, dragonflies, moths, shoes and a functional pinhole camera.

In addition to the sculptures, there will be tools and materials used in carving marble and sculpting clay also on display.

The 13 students whose work will be on exhibit include: Samantha Dixon, Brittany Doud, Kristine Ferg, Sara Holton, Steven Hook, Jeanne Kagle, Megan Kiessling, Chad McKay, Jessica O’Donnell, Braeden Post, Katriel Sadwick, Nyemah Taylor and Xinlin Wang.

These two exhibits will be open from 2 to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays through Fridays and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays through March 25.
