The 44th annual Arts in the Alley Music and Arts Festival was held on Sept. 15 – Sept. 17. Presented by the Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce, the event attracted thousands of individuals from across the state who enjoyed three days of live music from local musicians and area school show choirs, specially dedicated art zones for children and adults, and shopping stations at more than 30 artisan booths where people could purchase gifts for friends, family, or even themselves. Pictured here enjoying his caricature drawing that was commissioned by his parents is 7-year-old Archie Treen. The portrait was drawn by Columbus-based artist Zanakqua Mason.
