Bri Ulrich, India Enter, and Caroline Nelson, who all excelled musically at Owatonna High School and are continuing their pursuits in college, will perform in concert Saturday at the Owatonna Arts Center.
A local trademark of summer, the Owatonna Arts Center’s Garden Tour, returns this Sunday.
Though this year’s gardens are all unique — one, for example, features field rocks stacked and polished into birdbaths, while another boasts raised vegetable gardens — they’re all “enviable,” said Silvan Durben, creative director of the OAC. “They’re beautiful spots to have coffee or breakfast,” as well as to “gather with friends and family.”
The Owatonna Arts Center will feature two exhibits this month: “Crochet in Transition, Animal Paintings,” by Malia Wiley, and a selection of Sharon Stark’s signature jackets and shoes.
“Contemporary Realism: Works from the Atelier Studio Program of Fine Art” will be featured this month in the Owatonna Arts Center.
