  • By a Gadfly on the Susquehanna | also known as Mary Ellen Graybill

“It was a warm and humid night for Friday night’s FOURTH FRIDAY  in downtown Columbia. You could step into air conditioned gallery elegance at a couple art venues, grab a snack of fresh grapes, cheese and crackers and drinks while seeing real art and artists willing to share their love of life and being creative! At SCCA, you would have met prolific and talented artist Claire Lavin, founder of the Marietta Art House, and husband Tom. Claire, who had several astounding displays of talent in china sculpture and painting, and Tom had many stories to share about the creative process. Claire is selling the beautiful china lady for $2000.

“This Gadfly found lots of friends to ‘bug’ and much to enjoy in the old, historic town.”
