The two paintings will be on display in partnership with WNIN’s Ross Fest event on July 17, according to the Arts Council.

Ross Fest VIP participants will have first access to view the paintings on July 17, but the exhibition will be open to the public at the Arts Council’s Bower Suhrheinrich Foundation Gallery from July 20 to July 29 during the gallery’s normal business hours and during special gallery hours that will be announced at a later time.

As part of the exhibit, the Arts Council asked local artists to paint portraits of Ross in their own interpretation. Those paintings will be on display in the gallery along with the original paintings created by Ross himself.

The combination of sunshine and southerly winds will make for another abnormally mild day throughout the Ohio Valley - expect an afternoon high temperature near 69° this afternoon. Friday evening looks as though it will be just as pleasant; after seeing the upper 60s earlier in the day, we'll dip to 60° by 5 PM before falling towards 54° around 7 o’clock. We are however, watching a passing low pressure system and accompanying cold front that is expected to pass through the Tri-State late Friday evening and early Saturday morning.
