Holloween event planned at art gallery
in Gays Mills

The Arts Collective of Gays Mills would like to invite the extended community to a free Halloween event called “Halloween Hoot.”

This event is being held in conjunction with the current art exhibit, ‘Journeys: Life/Death Continuum.’

The featured artists, Linda Kenzle and Chela Mertz, will offer expressive face (and arm/hand) painting. Other Arts Collective artists may join in.

Do you like spiders and spider webs? Would you like to be transformed into a clown or a ghost? Or how about a bright orange jack o’ lantern on your cheek? The possibilities are endless.

The Halloween Hoot is all about fun and frolic! Candy treats and little treasures will be given to all who attend. There is the possibility of a parade up through the plaza.

Join them on October 26, 3 to 6 p.m.

Everyone is invited.

The Arts Collective Gallery is located in the Gays Mills Mercantile Center across from the library. Watch for the flag at 120 Sunset Ridge Avenue. Regular gallery hours are Thursday through Sunday, noon to 6 p.m.

For more information call the gallery at 608-745-4321. You may also call Linda Kenzle at 608-872-2555 or email
