Cool visual art, an interactive art exchange, a great discussion about the art of writing, a plant swap, and comedy – Arts Night Out is branching out again! Join us Wednesday, July 28th, 6 pm – 9 pm at Heritage Station for Arts Night Out! Arts Night Out will feature Wheeling artist and illustration Logan Schmitt and Huntington Fiction Factory will host writer Connie Kinsey. Nomada Bakery will host a plant exchange for all the plant moms and plant dads out there. And you have the opportunity to earn free art in exchange for random acts of kindness!
Logan Schmitt is an illustrator who grew up in the woods in Wheeling, West Virginia. His fascination with nature and the small places of the forest are ever-present in his work and are a continual source of inspiration. Stylistically, he uses lots of lines and flat colors to present animals and other natural elements in an otherworldly light. When he isn’t illustrating posters for bands or designing t-shirts, you can find him somewhere in the woods or down by the creek. He lives in Wheeling with his wife and owl figurines.
Connie Kinsey is a former military brat who has put down deep roots in a converted barn on a dirt road at the top of a hill in West Virginia. She lives with two dogs and a cat and is pursuing happiness, one cup of coffee at a time. Her writing has won awards and has been published online and in print. She blogs at http://wvfurandroot.com
and is wild about comments.
Art, Action, and Intention is a unique way for you to acquire art through charitable donations, volunteerism, or random acts of kindness. Works can be “purchased” through contributions of time, talent, or treasure. Art, Action, and Intention supports local non-profits and businesses and believes in promoting a kinder, more compassionate community. Visit the Art, Action, and Intention table at Full Circle Gifts & Goods.
Speaking of Full Circle, Scott & Noelle will host their first post-pandemic tile carving event.
They will have different colors of 6”x 6” handmade clay tiles prepped and ready for you to carve with your own designs, so come with ideas but know that they will have stencils available for those of you who might feel less inspired.
Noelle will be on hand for questions and basic instructions, but what you do with your tile is up to you.
Leave your creation with them and they will fire and glaze them with a clear glaze for you to pick up later. This is an opportunity to get a feel for how the clay process works and end up with something lovely for yourself.
The cost will be $28 per tile
Please choose your color and pay in advance by Monday, July 26th so that we can have time to make enough tiles for everyone.
Space is limited, so please sign up early to get your preferred time slot. Visit their website to reserve your time slot.
Huntington Comedy will join us on Taps at Heritage’s patio. Enjoy a few laughs and adult beverages to end your evening. The show begins at 8 pm.
While you’re at Heritage Station check out the other shops including the Gumbo Stop Cafe, Full Circle Gifts and Goods, The Historic Hippie, Taps at Heritage, and Birds of a Feather Boutique.
See you there!
