LOWVILLE – The public has the opportunity to own a piece from the 200th Lewis County Fair. The Lewis County Agricultural Society is auctioning off four of the five original ARCY murals that were created during the 2021 Lewis County Fair.

“Several people approached us during the fair asking us to buy the murals, so the only fair way was to put them up for auction,” said Fair Board Chairman Doug Hanno.

Ryan Christenson, aka ARCY, is an American graffiti artist and muralist from Connecticut who shares his large-scale splash-style street art in many places using spray paint to capture images. At the Lewis County Fair, he created murals of farm animals.

Mr Hanno said the fair’s board of directors decided to keep the exceptional cow fresco because it was more symbolic of County Lewis.

Auctions for the other four murals can be made on until 8 p.m. Friday.

Paintings of a goat, pig, rooster and sheep, each on three 4 by 8 foot plywood panels which are braced at the back by a frame to elevate the murals to 2 feet from the ground.

The winner of the murals will be responsible for removing the mural by 4 p.m. on August 13.

Pickup times will be scheduled with the Lewis County Fair Board at 315-376-8333. ARCY recommends the application of a water-based polyurethane if the wall paint is to remain in a permanent outdoor location.

Contact Rachel Lisk of the Lewis County Fair Board with any questions or to schedule a preview.

Domingo Olavarria: “These are funny sculptures. They are not too serious. They are cartoonish.

It might just reverse that frown!

Alex Miranda: “Can a beginner achieve something like this?

Domingo Olavarria: “Absolutely. “

Alex Miranda: “Do you think so? “

Domingo Olavarria: “Yes.”

Taught by local artist Benjamin Martin Levin.

Benjamin Martin Levin: “When all is said and done, it’s going to look amazing, guarantee it. “

Alex Miranda: “It feels good! Hit that! “

Or, Akon. On the back, poke a hole with your thumb, then simply open it.

Benjamin Martin Levin: “You try to act like an upside-down bowl. “

Although not too much.

Alex Miranda: “It looks like a plate! We make a face!

Angie, guest: “It’s my face!


Benjamin Martin Levin: “We switch to this side and we start to work on the features: the mouth, the nose, the eyes.

And this language!

Alex Miranda: “Have you ever heard of Megan Thee Stallion? “

Benjamin Martin Levin: Yes.

Alex Miranda: “Because you know it’s… She’s going to… ‘Ahh!’ “

For the nose, he says to cut the size of a small sausage, and then …

Benjamin Martin Levin: “You just have to pinch it in the clay. You see that?”

It makes it look so easy!

Angie: “No, that looks awesome.”

Alex Miranda: “I mean, what do you think?

Now the mouth.

Benjamin Martin Levin: This is the beginning of the mouth. Anyone see that? ”

Sculpt the clay as you would a pumpkin.

Alex Miranda: “It looks like a Nike check, but do you think it will be fun? ‘Do it!'”

Residents talk about social justice at National Driving Park Night Wed, 04 Aug 2021 01:08:21 +0000

Three young boys gathered in front of balloon artist Aaron “Doc” Hay, staring wide in anticipation of the whimsical design he would bring to life.

“Give me three ideas off the top of your head,” Hay said, sparking a flurry of suggestions that may have been more than he expected.

Donut, bird, frog, flower, cookie

The children shouted out the ideas as quickly as they came to them before the first youngster settled on such a common creature as a house fly. Hay worked quickly and within moments the balloon bug buzzed through the boy’s hands – becoming one of dozens of silly balloon animals contributing to the festive atmosphere Tuesday night at the Rickenbacker Woods Foundation on Livingston Avenue.

Adrianna Robertson, 12, walks with her balloon wings during a National Night Out in Driving Park event hosted by the Rickenbacker Woods Foundation on Tuesday.

Residents of the Driving Park neighborhood of the Near East Side had gathered for a National Night Out event, one of many scheduled for Tuesday night not only in Columbus, but across the United States.

As they mostly do on the first Tuesday in August, residents of central Ohio gathered for an evening where they took a stand against crime as they sought to strengthen ties of neighborhood and build trust between the police and the community.
