“Destination ARTS!” activities continue in Waynesboro with special events and live music scheduled at Gallery 50, Gallery 20 East and 42 West ARTS Co-Op. The Ceramic Arts Center of Waynesboro and The Contemporary School of the Arts & Gallery will also have art and pottery for sale and art classes available.
Marjorie Tressler returns to Gallery 50 on Thursday afternoon to explain how she uses the “Old Masters” oil painting technique. Her time at the canvas is set to begin at 1:00.
“Wine Down Friday” receptions, featuring live music, wine and light refreshments, are scheduled from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Gallery 50, Gallery 20 East, 42 West ARTS Co-Op and The Ceramic Arts Center of Waynesboro. All musical performances set for inside of the galleries will begin at 5:30.
The American folk tunes of Tom Jolin can be heard at the reception inside of Gallery 50. A founding member of The West Orrtanna String Band, Jolin has also performed with The Orrtanna Mountain Steamers and The Barnstormers. He has recorded several albums, but on Friday night, he’ll use his dulcimer to create live music for an audience to enjoy.

Originally from Hagerstown, Shindle attended The Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Fla. and now works with oils, pen and ink and printmaking. She’ll demonstrate how to create a still-life painting using watercolors between the hours of 1:00 and 3:00.
Ruth Showalter will provide music on the cello from 2:00 to 4:00 on Saturday afternoon at Gallery 20 East.
A new exhibit of artwork is now on display at The Contemporary School of the Arts & Gallery. The character drawings of David Ross can be viewed throughout the month of March.
