DOWNTOWN AKRON — St. Sebastian Parish’s Socials Group recently hosted an “Evening in Art: Portrait Sketches” at the WE Gallery, 20 N. High St.

Professional artist Travis Schlaht, from New York City, was in town showing his contemporary realist portrait sketches during the evening and talking with guests, according to organizers.

St. Sebastian Parish School students were invited to create their own individual portraits, and six portraits were chosen to be displayed at the gallery that evening.

The student artists were Isabella Bologna, Cassia Chivers, Brianna Foster, Elise Gorsuch, Olivia Gupta and Mia Petit.
