Local art news
“On the Horizon” was this week’s show at Ashawagh Hall in Springs, and the first fall opening brought out many locals who may have been doing their own version of hibernating this summer.

A Nick Groudas sculpture of welded steel, right, was another work on display. Morgan McGivern Photos
