Troy's Musical Moments June 28 - August 18
Opening Reception August 28 5:00 - 6:45 pm
The Troy-Hayner Cultural Center is delighted to present a historic exhibit about Troy’s Musical Moments.
For over 200 years, Trojans have loved hearing and making music. This exhibit takes a look at the people and places that are a part of Troy’s music history. Items on display in this exhibit are from the collections of The Troy Historical Society, the Museum of Troy History, the Troy-Hayner Cultural Center, as well as individuals. These photographs and artifacts represent just a few of Troy’s many musical moments. The president of The Troy Historical Society, Judy Deeter, is the curator of this historic exhibit.

As part of Troy Main Street's summer-long Sculptures on the Square event, local artists were invited to display their work in downtown businesses. Troy-Hayner Cultural Center is exhibiting drawings and darkroom photographs of Timothy Wells.
Our Upcoming Exhibit
Pigments at Play: Collective Brushworks by Four Local Artists August 23 – October 13
Artists’ Reception: Sunday, August 25 2 – 4 pm
Artists Marsha Elliott, Jeanette B. Ferguson, Kathy Moeller, and Keith Thue all have one thing in common; they were or are students of Troy-Hayner Cultural Center’s instructor Donna Pierce-Clark. While the same teacher has influenced all of these artists, each painter has developed their own prolific style.
Marsha Elliott grew up surrounded by Ohio farmland. Her work tells stories about the quiet peaceful environment of her youth. Jeanette Ferguson was born in Dayton and moved to Troy in 1966. For thirty years she helped develop and construct military products that required detailed perfection, which can be seen in her highly realistic and detailed paintings. In 2008, Kathy Moeller began her studies in watercolor following her retirement as a registered nurse. Kathy has received many awards for her work, including First Place for a watercolor painting in the 2019 Gateway Arts Competition in Sidney, Ohio. Keith Thue lives in Springfield and began his painting journey in 2004. He is actively involved in the local art community through Dayton co-op galleries, as well as United Rehabilitation Services. His focus has always been on the process and joy found in creating, rather than the final result.
The Troy-Hayner Cultural Center is supported by the tax payers of Troy and the generous donations of the Friends of Hayner. The mission is to preserve and maintain the Hayner mansion as a cultural resource center for the present and as an historical legacy for the future generations of the community of Troy, Ohio.
