The Art Concern

Grove City Council’s Art Concern presents a collection of brilliantly shaded watercolor artwork by six artists who form the group “The Pump House Guys.” The exhibit is on display through Friday, Dec. 27 at City Hall, 4035 Broadway, in historic Grove City Town Center.

Combining talents and displaying their work at various locations for nearly 30 years, the group of men originally came together as a result of their shared love for art as they often displayed their work at the same galleries.

Following an exhibit at Chillicothe’s Pump House Center for the Arts around 2004, the curator for another gallery approached the group of men with an idea to display their work as a collection at his location and named the show “The Pump House Guys at the High Road.” The artists continued to collaborate and display their work together at various venues.

“The Pump House Guys” exhibit includes the work of Robert Bruce, Kevin Buckland, John Cameron, Charles Rowland, Jeff Stahler and Ned Moore (in memoriam).


Members of the Grove City Council are proud to sponsor The Art Concern which features artists throughout Grove City and central Ohio. The Art Concern was created for the expressed purpose of promoting culture in the Grove City community.
