Jenny’s picks – July 13

1) I never think of myself as a painter, but perhaps I will discover a hidden talent during Wine and Canvas, 6 to 8:30 p.m. July 20 at Tri-State Artisans, 422 Washington St., Columbus. Replicate the night’s featured painting with a teacher. Cost: $40, which includes a $25 donation to Turning Point. Snacks are provided, but you’ll need to bring your own beverage of choice. Register: weblink.donor by July 17. Information:

2) Join local architect Louis Joyner and Ball State University architectural historian Kristin Barry July 20 for a panel discussion presented by the Columbus Area Arts Council. Dubbed “Celebrating Columbus’ National Historic Landmarks,” the discussion will center on how and why seven modern buildings in Columbus have been designated National Historic Landmarks. Columbus Indiana Architectural Archives archivist Tricia Gilson will moderate the discussion, which will begin at 6:45 p.m. with a 15-minute tour of the exhibit “The National Historic Landmarks of Columbus” in the Gallery on the Bartholomew County Public Library main level, 536 Fifth St., Columbus. From there, the discussion will move into the library’s Red Room. If you miss the July 20 discussion, you can still catch the accompanying exhibit through Aug. 11. The program was made possible through a Historic Preservation Education Grant from Indiana Humanities, Indiana Landmarks, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.” The Columbus Area Arts Council is the recipient of the grant.
