Reception- Grace of Grace Street Park
- Date: 10/02/2019 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
This reception honors the multiple artists involved in this effort. It will be held on October 2nd from 6-7:30pm at Howard's on Main, 330 Main St. The art, landscape images of the park, are all done in en plein air style, meaning they were done outdoors rather than in a studio. The art may be purchased, with a percentage of the proceeds going to benefit the upkeep and development of Grace Street Park. This community arts event, initiated by Dana Gonzalez, includes artists from throughout the greater Greenwood community. The event is open to the public. Please come and bring your friends.
