Artist Demonstrations at Lonz Winery & Middle Bass Island July 17, 2021
The Ohio Arts Council will bring a special feature to this year’s Middle Bass Music Fest. Eight regional artists will demonstrate their talents and offer festival participants the opportunity to learn a new craft. The artists are local to the island and from around the region. They will share a variety of art media in an “art tent” especially set up to host this great activity. Along with demonstrating their work, each artist will invite festival guests to join in the fun. Some art will be hands-on fun and others will offer take-away-kits to help folks learn a new skill at home. Come and meet the friendly people from Middle Bass Island and learn something new at the music festival. Artist presenting include:
Kelly Kanyok- needle punch embroidery
Debbie Pinta- stain glass
Kim Miles- weaving
Doreen Butler- rug hooking
Amy Houston-painting on slate
Janet Sterns-acrylic painting
Lisa Shay -glass painting
