It is at the Woodbourne at Cross Pointe Library branch, 101 E. Alex-Bell Road (next to Outback Steakhouse) in Centerville and is available today until 9pm and Saturday, 9am to 6pm.

Everyone's welcome to browse and buy artwork at affordable prices. This is Saturday, 11am to 4pm at DVAC on 118 N Jefferson St in downtown Dayton. It is open to the public.
