Tuesday in Art Opinion – When an artist does multiple paintings or drawings of a single scene, and sells them separately, what do the collectors think about it? Sharon Weaver was curious, so she made a point to ask. . . and she’ll share what she found out this Tuesday.

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Ron Bigony’s watercolor paintings showcase realistic yet charming depictions of run-down barns, people-filled city streets, and even some wild flowers. Come by and see a few of his paintings on Wednesday, then feel free to submit your own artwork to be featured as well.
