Ottawa, OH -
The Blanchard River Art Guild, commonly referred to as BRAG, found its home at Schroeder Center for the Arts in Ottawa, providing a home for local artists' work and a place for art education. BRAG's membership is made up of a variety of members; including artists, musicians, sculptors, photographers and more. Each of the members bring their own talent to group.
His work can be seen in almost every town in Putnam County, and has been put on display by the Blanchard River Art Guild several times. Oscar Velasquez is currently painting a mural in Findlay's downtown, but has left his mark in Kalida, with this mural on the side of the supermarket, and in downtown Ottawa. For Oscar, a love for art developed at an early age.
BRAG offers not only a look into the artistic side of Putnam County, but gives residents the chance to learn with dozens of classes being offered.
