Spring Events

          The days are getting longer and warmer – a good time to come down to the Fort for the show by the Steubenville Art Association. This year's theme is “Show Us Your Stuff” and is open to anyone who wants to display their original art (watercolor, pen & ink, oil, pencils, sculpture, pastels, etc.) to be judged by a panel of artists. There is a $10 entry fee and entries are due by March 7. The show will run from March 9-22. For more information, contact Judy Schmidt at 740-424-3835.

            Invitations are going out to prospective entrants for our annual Spring Quilt Show which will run from April 7-21. We welcome all kinds of quilts and hand-crafted covers for display. This is one of our more popular events that attracts many visitors. For more information and to obtain an entry form call Mary at the Fort: 740-283-4935. Applications are due by March 18th.

            We have scheduled two book signings this spring. On March 16, author and artist Alan Fitzpatrick will talk about his newest book, Vengeance is Mine, about Killbuck, the Delaware warrior who fought the men of the Virginia Regiment during the French & Indian War.

And then on April 20, Steubenville Catholic Central alumnus Jerry Madden, will be on hand to discuss and sign his book, Steel Valley: Coming of Age in the Ohio Valley in the 1960’s.

These events are free and everyone is welcome. Watch for more details as the dates approach.
