Starbrick Cooperative Gallery Opening Night: The South Green Demolition Project by Jim Shirey. During the summer of 2016, Ohio University demolished three of its dormitories on the south green of the Athens campus. Jim followed this project over three months, getting to know the people on the crew and finding that their demolition work creates beautiful wasted landscapes and abstract visions. This is not your father's industrial photography! Come prepared to be amazed. Jim will be present to discuss The Art of Photographing Men at Work. Also, Opening Night for Many Mini Quilts! As part of the 2017 Crazy Quilt Crawl, we present mini quilts & art inspired by quilts. SPECIAL!! Last Chance! Renowned Ceramicist, Matt Long’s Mugs & Sippers will be available for a limited time!!

Stuart’s Opera House Welcomes Nelsonville's own The Hitch-Hikers to our stage for their final show! On Final Friday, the Hitch-Hikers will do it one last time. It has been 50 years since the members of the original group (lead guitar, bass, keyboard, drums, and singer) disbanded to go their separate ways in life. They got back together in 2011 and started doing an annual benefit concert on alumni weekend. This year marks the 50th reunion for the Class of 1967 which was the last class to graduate from Nelsonville High School. It is appropriate that the old dogs call it quits as well. Come join the fun for one more blast from the past. Doors open at 6:00 pm; the fun starts at 7:00 pm.
New on the square!!
Athens County Dems. Headquarters Join us for an Old Fashioned Ice Cream Social! Fun & games for the kids, meet your neighbors, good conversations & make new friends! 39 West Columbus Street.
