The 6th Annual LeDuc Art Show Reception was held at the LeDuc Historic Estate on Nov. 6. A number of local artists brought their artwork to be displayed throughout the house. Artwork included photography, jewelry, glass painting, needlework, stained glass and more.

The LeDuc provided guests at the reception with a display of tasty treats including cheesecake and chocolate cake. A selection of warm drinks were also served including an apple cider cinnamon schnapps and amaretto hot chocolate.

The LeDuc Art Show runs through Nov. 13. The house is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. to view the selection of art throughout the house.
