On a perfectly lovely late summer evening, the Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council (GPCAAC) recently shared its vision for The Arts Garage (TAG) with a group of interested art enthusiasts. Rona and Paul Rothschild shared their art-filled home and beautiful waterfront yard for the presentations.
Rona Rothschild was a founding member of GPCAAC, and she and Paul are early donors to TAG’s capital funding campaign to renovate the building at 317 W. Perry St., Port Clinton.
The Rothschilds gave because, in Rona’s words, “We have deep feelings for the arts, and how they positively impact society as a whole.”
The Rothschilds believe that all of humanity is uplifted by art in its various forms. The evening included multiple talented artists, with plein air artists Erik Anderson, Mark DeLong and Rebecca Booth demonstrating their skills.
Brian Shifflet played melodic sounds on the cello and piano, and everyone was in awe of Adam Taylor’s Lake Erie shell map.
Speaking for The Arts Council were Jonnie Myers Debbink, Carol Morgan, Norm Peiffer, Barbara Radebaugh and Chris Singerling. For more information about TAG and how you can help, go to The Art Council’s website ottawacountyarts.org/tag or ottawacountyarts.org/donate.
