As the old saying goes, the family that makes art together, stays together. Wait, what? Although this might not be an adage we often hear, it is proven that engaging in creative activities can strengthen bonds and promote open channels of communication. The Dutcher family show includes works by John Cline Elementary art teacher Erik Dutcher along with those by Erik’s mom, sister, and uncle and opens with a public reception for the artists on the First Friday in August.

The show remains on display through the end of September and can be viewed during ArtHaus’ regular hours on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10am – 2pm.
