A juried art show and sale, sponsored by the newly formed Whitehouse Arts Advisory Board, will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 11 in the Pythian Castle, 6761 Providence St.

Leo Price, executive board member, will demonstrate his artistic techniques under a tent next to the Pythian Castle and will be making a large tiger sculpture out of clay.

This marks the first art show sponsored by the Whitehouse Arts Advisory Board. The board is planning additional shows and workshops for local residents.
