Weekend Events is a weekly feature of The Progress published to alert readers about events planned by nonprofit organizations or events that benefit the community. All events are open to the public. The following events are planned this weekend in Progressland.
A winter art show, sponsored by The Susquehanna River Art Center and the Joseph and Elizabeth Shaw Public Library, is being presented at the library through Feb. 2. The show is open during regular library hours.
This show features many winter scenes in a variety of mediums such as watercolor, acrylic, pastel, oil and mixed medium. There will also be other themes presented.
