Jenny’s Picks – March 9

I’m looking forward to the opening gallery reception for “Through Our Eyes” from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday at Gallery 506 at the Columbus Visitors Center, 506 Fifth St. The public is invited to the opening reception of this mixed-media exhibit of two local artists, Donna Vernig and James Behmke, who also happen to be wife and husband. Vernig is a water colorist, and Bemke’s medium is photography. Free to attend. Information: 812-378-2622.

I refuse to choose a favorite Disney princess; I celebrate each and every one of them, and I hope to celebrate them in person at the Princess Tea Party. You can dress as your favorite Disney princess, enjoy tea and cookies, make your own crown and skate with Hamilton Center princesses from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 16 and 23. Cost: $15, ages 4 to 12. Register for the Princess Tea Party at 812-376-2686.
