Nancy Pierce, one of our prominent Mohican Valley Artists participated in this event on July 5th. Here’s her report:
The event was challenging and fun. Started painting at about 9AM after registering at Brookside Park with the President of the Plein Air Society of Ohio, Robin Roberts of Ashland. The old F.E. Meyers Company grounds, off Union Street was chosen as the site.
Very few people passed by as I painted. The only regular company I had all day was doves, pigeons, a ground hog and a Beagle with chewed leash, who tried to climb into my car!
Painted until about 3:30PM, photographed the art work, and framed it, before returning to Brookside Park at 6PM for a display by all of the participating artists, including Christopher Leeper, a prominent Ohio artist from Southern Ohio.
I am guessing that there were about 12 of us. People were arriving to enjoy the Fourth of July Concert at the Guy C. Meyers Band Shell, so there were quite a few that had the opportunity to see what we had accomplished. Several pieces were sold on the spot and another will be.
Here is Nancy’s contribution:
The framed painting will be on display at the Ashland County Art League’s Summer Gallery in Ashland throughout the Summer months.

A few years ago, our group of Artists were displaying our Art at the Loudonville Public Library, during the Loudonville Winterfest. One of our Artists noticed these young ladies as they sat drinking their tea and hot chocolate, and talked them into allowing her to photograph them. The intent was that each Artist in our group would then do their portraits in whatever media each Artist worked in.
I believe that the Ladies did receive several of the portraits that the Artists did, but this pencil drawing of the group, by Robert Walker, somehow got lost in the “Day to Day” until it just surfaced a short time ago.
The drawing is now at the Stonewall Gallery in Loudonville and has a reward attached to it. If you know who these Ladies are, (I believe that they are sisters) let us know, and we’ll see that the drawing gets delivered to them or their families (No Charge). The person that identifies these Ladies first will get a 30% discount on any Art in the Stonewall Gallery.

If you know who they are, come on in and claim your discount. If you are in contact with them bring them along and we’ll present them with their drawing.
Many of you are probably aware that we lost our storefront in downtown Loudonville, and have been searching for a replacement since mid April.
Well the good news is that we have found a new “Home” at the
221 South Market Street
It is not actually in the downtown area, but it’s just a block and a half south of the Square on Market Street so it is easily accessible, and has a parking area in the back along with plenty of on-street parking in front.
We are still hanging art and polishing the woodwork, but we will be opening to the public from Noon until 5:00 PM on Saturday the 27th 0f June, and are hosting a “Gathering of Artists” event from 6:00 until 8:00 PM that same evening.
We Hope to See You All There!!!
Four of the The Mohican Valley Artists are showing their Art this Weekend, and the first floor of the Wolf Creek Grist Mill is filled with their creations.
There was a large crowd of adults and their children in attendance to see Jack Hanna and his critters. The grounds were buzzing with face-painted kids (and a few adults) enjoying scavenger hunts, make and take art, and balloon creations.
Saturday’s come and gone, but on Sunday there is another full day of events planned, so if you missed the events today, there is another chance tomorrow.
Hope to see you there,
Several of The Mohican Valley Artists will be displaying their Art at the Wolf Creek Grist Mill
