Do you have bare walls that need dressing up?

Come join the Knights of Columbus and the Catholic Daughters of America as they sponsor an art auction on Feb. 2 at 7 p.m. in the church hall at St. Louis Catholic Church in Clarksville.


Undoubtedly, you will find that special, one-of-a-kind piece of artwork that will fill that empty spot just perfectly. Appetizers will be prepared and served by Kevin's Katering. There will also be a raffle.

If you are looking for artwork by a particular artist, let Daria McGehee or John Sniezek know and they will see if it is available. Tickets are $15 per adult and will be on sale after all the Masses during the weekends of Jan. 19-20 and 26-27.

If you have any questions or need additional information, call Daria at 410-442-1853 or John at 410-312-7453. You can also send an email to the art auction email address

Reservoir High School teacher Keedra Brown and the school Dance Company recently attended the 24th annual Maryland State High School Dance Showcase at Goucher College. Hundreds of dancers from 35 schools representing eight counties participated in this special event.

Each year, one school is selected to receive the Maryland State High School award for Professionalism and Performance. The dance company and Keedra were selected for this prestigious honor. Troupe member Elizabeth Lovend was also selected as a 2012-13 All State Dancer. Congratulations to all.

Speaking of art, six Reservoir High School art students were selected to be part of an upcoming exhibit, "Artists Inspiring Artists: Self-Portraits." The students were asked to select a work by an art master as the inspiration for their own self-portrait.

Congratulations to sophomore Jacob Rosenbaum and freshman Aidan Henry from Jennifer Moon's Art 2 GT class. Aidan's portrait is featured on the front of the invitation. Sophomores Aden Khan and Riley Lewis are from William Borja's Photo 1 class. Senior Jackie Dubin and junior Anthony Petrillo are from Greg English's Art 3/4 AP class.

The exhibit is on display at Columbia Art Center, 6100 Foreland Garth, Columbia, through the end of January. Congratulations.
