There will be displays at the Canal Winchester Area Historical Society Complex in the old train depot, Robert Warren’s Art Loft, House of Therapy, in the recently-restored Interurban Building, at Stradley Park, inside several local shops who will be hosting Guild artists, and in the Frances Steube Community Center where several Art Guild members will have exhibits.
