The WVCB was honored to have local artist Kathryn Smithson working her watercolor magic in front of our office during the Westerville Art Hop on Saturday, April 6th.

Whether it’s dogs or birds or other wildlife, Kathryn’s images bring smiles to the faces of the people who purchase her works.

“Art is the Queen of all sciences communicating knowledge to all the generations of the world.” – Leonardo da Vinci

By supporting local artists, whatever their medium, you are encouraging the talent that goes into creating it and allowing those artists to bring more beauty, more knowledge and more grace to our community and our world.

Here in Westerville, art is all around us. It is spoken and sung at Java Central; available for purchase at the Westerville Music and Arts Festival in July and in many Uptown Westerville shops; on display in public spaces and in places you might never expect with a backstory you might never have imagined.

April is Art Month. Our Mount Carmel St. Ann’s 4th Friday kickoff is called “Spring into the Arts” because, just like the spring, art is refreshing. It can brighten a room, bring back a memory. It can also make you cry. It can inspire you to be more. Art can change you. Explore the art in Westerville and prepare to be changed.
