Friday, Oct. 9

An art- and craft-filled weekend is slated for Oct. 9 to 11 as more than 60 artists’ works will be on display at the Woman’s Club of Erie in their 3rd Annual Fine Art Gallery Show. Represented will be members of the Northwest Pennsylvania Artists Association, Lake Erie Fiberarts Guild, Erie Photography Club, Presque Isle Artists Association, and Photographic Arts Society of Northwestern Pennsylvania.

Artwork in a wide variety of media will be for sale and can be taken at the time of purchase. On all three days, refreshments will be served and tours of the historic mansion will be available.

The club is currently conducting a campaign to raise money to repair its slate roof. A percentage of proceeds from art sales will benefit the project, which seeks to raise $60,000 for the needed repairs. — Mary Birdsong
