Three local female artists are having openings this Friday night along with Ladies’ Night at Sweet Simpliciteas! … the sweetness continues on Saturday with the Honeyfest and the Gallery Hop.

This experience will nourish your sense of community and challenge your sense of humor.

Ashley Pierce First Solo Show
The creatures in Pierce’s work seem to be acting in their own little dramas. They are whimsical at first glance but it soon becomes clear that they are struggling with more complex issues. Surprisingly, because it’s not clear if they are male or female or even if they are human. Ashley regards most of her characters as self-portraits.
Don’t let the photos fool you, these are not simple paintings… but they are not really bas-reliefs either. They are ink and watercolor on wooden panels that are carved to create pattern and texture rather than detail. Pierce goes at the wood so obsessively that she has burned out motors in the Dremel tools she carves with.
Ashley D. Pierce is self-taught, and this is her first show… come out and see her amazing creations!!

Join Honeyrun Farm and other beekeepers/honey producers for this fun, family event just outside of Columbus this Saturday!
The mission of the Lithopolis Honeyfest is to educate visitors about the art and science of apiculture (beekeeping). To raise awareness of the importance of the honey bee on the pollination of crops, to increase the consumption of honey, and to educate about the beekeeping industry. With the involvement of honey and beekeeping trade associations, we see this event as a component in preserving apiculture, not just in Ohio, but nationwide and globally.
Enjoy a fascinating day of unique attractions – bee beards; honey tasting of all flavors, colors and textures; honey extracting and bee hive inspecting. Meet beekeepers, explore equipment and discover products direct from the hive. See a real queen bee and her colony up close under the glass of an observation hive.
Listen to great live music, browse quality arts & crafts, and spend family fun time at The Gilmore Group’s Busy Beehive. Scrumptious honey-made food and be sure to sample mead (honey wine) at the mead & wine tasting. Grab a honey brew at the Bloom-Carroll Kiwanis beer garden. Before flying off, take home a memory with a sweet souvenir shirt, fit for a queen Taste of Honey cookbook and stingingly elegant hand-painted glassware.
