Sight and Sound — Featured Artists Show

On exhibit August 1-31, Arts in the Village Gallery presents a Featured Artists show by nature photographer Jack Nevitt and Ron Wagner, who handcrafts miniature pianos.

He makes limited edition canvas prints. Ron Wagner makes 1/10th scale miniature grand pianos working with many materials and skills including wood carving, metal working, resin casting, 3D printing (for keyboards and buttons), and several other materials. The pianos have embedded MP3 players that let them play any recorded piano music. There will be a free and open to the public reception for Ron and Jack from 2 - 5pm on August 12 at Arts in the Village Gallery, featuring a wine tasting provided by Bogati Vineyards.
