Steele St. The public is invited to the opening and reception on Sunday, March 9, from noon to 4 p.m. The exhibition will remain on view until March 21.

The free reception features live music, dancing, booths demonstrating how to make soap, paint your own personal masterpiece, how to improve your photographs and more. Refreshments are available while they last. The event is part of Second Sunday on Steele Street, so visitors can browse in the shops on the block between Carthage and Wicker streets after visiting the art exhibit.
