There's a weekend open house in Ada and you are invited.
Gallery for the Arts, 115 S. Main St., will hold an open house from 4 to 7 p.m., Friday, April 8, and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, April 9. The Gallery features original works by Ada artists and artisans.
Visitors will be served wine and munchies on Friday. On Saturday will be coffee, juice and breads. In addition a collection of Gallery items will be raffled.
When Ruth Roiter opened the gallery she described its purpose this way: “I set the stage. The artists are the performers.”
