Do you have plans for Friday, Oct. 12?
Cranberry Patch will be at the opening night of the Associated Artists of Butler County faculty show at the Cranberry Township Municipal Center. The exhibit runs through Nov. 9.
To build excitement for the show, Cranberry Patch is featuring a different local artist on the site each day leading up to the opening night.
“Poppy,” an original watercolor by Mary Alice Carmody-Diana, also will be raffled off at the event. Attendees must be present to win the artwork, which will be on display at the Patch table.
