TOLEDO (WTOL) - Downtown Toledo’s signature arts experience is back.
The Art Loop is held every third Thursday through December.
An exhibit called ‘Looking In’ is now open at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church.
It’s a collaboration between Bowling Green State University photography students and men and women from the Wood County Board of Developmental Disabilities.
Some of the clients even snapped the pictures on display.
“The first thing they acquire is an understanding of each other. We’ve been able to develop long term relationships,” according to Brent Baer of the WCBDD.
The Gathered Glassblowing Studio has been open since 2012.
Most of the colorful pieces are created by local artists. Prices are affordable and a way to show off your civic pride.
“We are the Glass City. We have the history. This is a whole movement that comes from our community,” said Ian Welch of the Studio.
Also here are the works of Katrina Niswander. She adds new color and new life to old, vintage photographs.
Niswander has always been attracted to anything antique.
“I found a fondness for old photographs so I collect them and pick which pieces people call to me and bring them new life.”
Newest gallery downtown is Superior Studios. They like to say they’ve got a nice collection of artwork, music and customers.
“We have a lot of fun and celebrate life here” says owner Paul Sagert.
The next Art Loop is May16th.
