The public is invited to stop in the library and vote for your favorite painting to win the People’s Choice Award.

Mark your calendars for the annual Roche de Boeuf Festival organized by the Waterville Chamber of Commerce to be held on the last Sat. of Sept. AWAAC sponsors an artists’ area located on N. Second St. Visitors to the festival will have a chance to view, enjoy and purchase the work of over 30 local artists.
Delightful metal critters, jewelry, paintings, painted wine glasses, beaded serving utensils, garden art, photography, mosaic glass work and more are part of the beautiful work on display. Also, local musicians provide some musical accompaniment for the shoppers’ listening pleasure.
AWAAC and Dave's Running will be hosting a 5K run, family walk and bicycle race across the Waterville Bridge. We are working with ODOT to make this happen and will post the date and more details as soon as we can.
Trashion Fashion Extravaganza Sponsored by the Anthony Wayne Area Arts Commission
The winner was Laura Decsman. Her design team includes Kristina Frederickson, Kate Hatas, Marilyn Wagoner, and Lynne Santus.
Laura’s outfit is made of several un-used surgical drape sheets that would have otherwise been incinerated, thus sending countless chemicals into the air we breathe. The fish scales are made from paint chips, plastic sheets and doggy treat bags – all recyclable materials. The head dress she is wearing is a plastic x-ray cassette bag which is adorned with more fish scales. Her shawl is composed of bubble wrap. The jewelry is designed with used beads and fishing lures, making her just about ready for the Maumee River Walleye Run. Here is hoping we all get on the recycling bandwagon to keep our environment clean.
It was a close contest and we want to congratulation all the contestants: Michelle Pelton, Charlene Gary, Kay-Lynne Schaller, Starbuck Rodger and his design team includes Melanie Sears, Ben Devorss, and Lynn Somogye from Bittersweet Farms, Wendy Gray and her design team Brittany Miller and Courtney Gray from 3rd Street Blooms, Mackinzie Spencer, Olivia Wiczynski, Babs and her design team Aggie Alt from the Old House.
