Ardelle Herzing, from Port Allegany, shows Pastor Lynn Geiser
her latest oil painting. The painting is Ardelle's own rendition of
Thomas Blackshear's famous painting "Forgiven." Ardelle says
the work is divinely inspired. It took her three weeks to paint.

The Inn On Maple Street was the place to be last
Sunday afternoon. The Inn hosted an Open House
and a reception for Ardelle Herzing, an extremely
talented local artist who displayed over 40 pieces
of her collection of paintings she has done.

It was Ardelle's day as friends and admirers gathered
at The Inn on Maple Street, looked over her paintings,
and snacked on Red Velvet Cake, tea and coffee.

Joan Stromberg, a neighbor of Ardelle's, was there.
Joan, also an artist, will display her paintings, mostly
landscapes, through October at the Inn on Maple St.
