HOODS UP - A success! 

Our 2018 Event of the Season was a great success thanks to our volunteers, our committee and our host - Baumann Auto Group!

The event featured a silent auction of four hand-painted car hoods, live mural painting, a randomized raffle of panel paintings and our 50/50 Progressive Raffle Drawing.

To the right are photos of a few of the unique pieces of art which were part of the randomized raffle:

The Ottawa County 4-H Program and Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council have teamed up to create the Ottawa County Barn Quilt Trail.  The Ottawa County Barn Quilt Trail will serve as an invitation for visitors to take a driving tour around the county to view the quilt blocks mounted on barns and buildings and enjoy the unique character of Ottawa County.

Barn quilts are painted quilt squares, fashioned on boards and mounted on a barn or other building.  Unlike cloth quilts that are made up of a series of squares, a barn quilt is almost always a single square.  The concept of barn quilts began in Adams County, Ohio in 2001.  Today, barn quilt trails can be found in over 200 communities in 47 states.

CALLING ALL ARTISTS! Ottawa County Barn Quilt Trail


Calling all writers! The Writers' Circle will begin again starting in April on the 3rd Thursday of every month beginning at 7 pm at Ida Rupp Public Library.  Writers and those interested are welcomed to join the Writers' Circle for readings and other offerings.  Suggestions: Essays, Poetry, Fantasy, Short Stories or other pieces welcomed.

Special Teen Writer's Circle is being formed! Stay in touch with us:


Local artists - 2D and 3D - are invited to have their art featured on The Healing Wall at Magruder Hospital. Patients, visitors, doctors and nurses take advantage of examining the artwork on a daily basis. They even have the option to make purchases.


The exhibit changes out every two months.
