LUDINGTON – Sportsman’s Irish Pub is hosting Bottles & Brushes: Acrylic Painting Workshop with Cheri Petri on Wednesday, May 21 from 6 to 8 p.m.  This event is sponsored by Ludington Area Center for the Arts and the proceeds earned will benefit LACA and their arts education programming.

Cheri Petri, a Pentwater artist, graduated with honors from Michigan State University with a degree in painting.  Her work can be seen in many galleries throughout Michigan and the United States. She has spent many years as an adjunct professor at West Shore Community College sharing her love of painting. Her work has evolved through the years and has experimented with new mediums including painting on plexiglass and using encaustics.

This workshop is an opportunity to have some fun creating art in a relaxed, cocktail party atmosphere.  Attendees will create an original acrylic painting in a floral design.  All materials are provided.
