24 Apr , 2022  

By 1812Blockhouse

Kingwood Center Gardens has been a very smelly kind of place over that last several weeks – the good kind of smells, that is.

Since early February, it has hosted Making Scents: The Art and Passion of Fragrance, a unique exhibition that has brought thousands of attendees to Kingwood.

On February 1, we posted a look at the exhibit that included a photo and a short video. That post can be read here.

As we noted then, the exhibition at Kingwood runs through April 30. It takes place from 11L:00 AM to 6:00 PM each day.

Colorful Photographs On Display At The Main Library

6 Sep , 2021  

By 1812Blockhouse

The Main Library of the Mansfield/Richland County Public Library is a rather more colorful place as of late, and will be so until early October.

A photography display called “A Colorful Dream” is the reason. Artist Adrien Broom’s 40 piece photography exhibit is a wonderfully creative journey through the color spectrum. It is on display at the Main Library in downtown Mansfield through October 9.

Over a three year period, Broom, a contemporary fine art and commercial photographer in Brooklyn, created sets that are designed to extract and display the essence of basic colors — red, yellow, blue, etc.. Photographs chronicle the travel of a young girl exploring each color-filled “world.”
