Saline area arts supporters can get an inside look at Salt Valley Arts, the new arts center at 400 W. Russell St. in Saline, 6-8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 23.
Free and open to the public, the Open House will feature a number of artful activities to entice visitors to attend. Guests will be able to observe classes being taught in print-making, glass fusing, and Zentangle, or watch artists creating felted wool and fleece mittens to donate to community organizations.
Outside the classes, visitors can participate in hands-on art making activities themselves, or view an exhibit of original work from SVA artists. They can also enter a drawing for hand-made art prizes donated by SVA and Cake Eaters—the informal artists’ group that meets every Friday morning at the Center.
“We want the greater Saline area to know that we are here and ready to serve their artistic needs,” said Sue McDowell, Interim Director of SVA. “We’ve been around for a year now and have our official non-profit status, but a lot of people still don’t know about us, or all the wonderful opportunities we offer.”
Those who are interested in supporting the new arts center can become members on the spot, in several different categories (cash or check only at the Open House).
Further information on classes, exhibits and other activities, as well as membership, is available at the Center’s website, www.saltvalleyarts.org.
