On Wednesday, June 17, from 7 to 8 p.m., 20 North Gallery will host Around the Corner exhibiting artist Aaron S. Bivins, as he presents a watercolor painting demonstration for gallery visitors. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., so that patrons may view the exhibit and speak with the artist prior to the demonstration.

Bivins, a noted art educator and past-president of the Northwestern Ohio Watercolor Society, will be creating a floral still life and speaking about his motivations for the various series of paintings—in watercolor, oil and acrylic—he has created throughout his artistic career. A question-and-answer session with the audience will conclude the evening.

To maintain social distancing, only 24 attendees will be permitted to enter the gallery. The demonstration and question time will also be live-streamed on Facebook: @WatercolorWithAaronS.Bivins

The demonstration is free and open to the public, although due to space limitations, reservations are encouraged. To reserve a seat, contact 20 North Gallery at 419-241-2400 or info@20northgallery.com
