Top things to do in Columbus for Sept. 27-29

In a New Light: Alice Schille and the American Watercolor Movement, through Sunday, Sept. 29 

Reputed to be one of the best American watercolorists of the 20th century, Columbus native Alice Schille was also, thanks to her love for travel, credited with bringing elements of European modernism to the American Midwest. In a New Light: Alice Schille and the American Watercolor Movement includes 50 of her light-filled, colorful works, including some that have not been seen in many years. This weekend is your last chance to see this exhibition at Columbus Museum of Art—it closes Sunday.

Wolf’s Ridge Brewing and Land-Grant Brewing Co. Anniversary Celebrations, Saturday, Sept. 28

Saturday offers two anniversary celebrations at popular breweries, and the Short North Trolley Co. is chipping in so you can enjoy both parties in style. Wolf’s Ridge’s sixth-anniversary party, dubbed Wolfstock, kicks off at 10 a.m. with exclusive bottle releases in the taproom and Hickory Room event space, 215 N. Fourth St. In addition, an outdoor fundraiser benefiting The Dick & Jane Project will take place from noon to 8 p.m. in the alley at East Hickory Street, featuring more Wolf’s Ridge brews, live music, barbecue and games. Across the Scioto, Land-Grant will be celebrating five years in Franklinton (424 W. Town St.) with special beer releases, live music in the beer garden and Ohio State football on the Jumbotron. Festivities take place from noon to midnight. The Short North Trolley Co. will provide complimentary transportation between the two breweries.

Water Lantern Festival, 4:30 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 28

Loosely based on Asian traditions, the Water Lantern Festival brings people together along the Scioto Mile to build and decorate lanterns (using provided kits), which are released onto the water at sunset. There will also be local vendors, food trucks, live music and games. The lanterns are retrieved by event staff after the festival to protect the environment. $35-$40.

Formations: Three Artists and the Art of Mixed Media, through Nov. 1

A group show at the Dublin Arts Council by three former CCAD professors, Anita Dawson, Char Norman and Bruce Robinson, focuses on the joy of creativity and improvisation with materials. Some of the works in the exhibition, which opened this week, incorporate natural and found objects. Cultural history and craft also play a role, as in "Preserved I" by Char Norman, made from linen, leaf, abaca paper and scrap metal.
