SEPTEMBER & OCTOBER ART GALLERY - For the past forty-two years the Groveport Heritage and Preservation Society has held a quilt raffle on Apple Butter Day. Festival-goers spend one dollar per ticket to take a chance on winning. Many of the quilts have been hand-pieced by women from the community and hundreds of volunteer hours were spent quilting them by hand. Years ago the quilting was done inside the log house, but it now takes place at the Groveport Senior Center. Town Hall will be showcasing several of these quilts during September and October in the Art Gallery, 648 Main Street. Over 15 winners of past raffles have agreed to display their quilts in honor of the women who have spent numerous hours working on these beautiful keepsakes.
The Groveport Town Hall Art Gallery is located on the first floor of Groveport Town Hall, located in the downtown historic district. It shares the first floor exhibition space with the Groveport Heritage Museum and the Groveport Cultural Arts Center.
Area professional and amateur artists regularly display works of art and interesting collections, with exhibitions changing monthly. Recent exhibitions have included paintings and photographs, antique glassware, Victorian children's toys, vintage trains and Erector sets, woodcarver crafts, and four exhibits from The Smithsonian Institution.
The gallery is open free of charge Monday - Friday 9:00 am - 8:00 pm, Saturday 11:00 am - 7:00 pm and Sunday from noon to 6:00 pm. However, if there are no activities taking place in the evening at Town Hall the building will close at 7:00 pm. PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF HOURS.
Exhibits of interesting collections, as well as works by area artists and crafts persons, are always sought. Sales are permitted. Displays are for a one month period. Please let us know if you are interested in displaying your art in the Town Hall Gallery.
