Event Details

At Rapscallion, we value hospitality and community above all else, and prioritize supporting local businesses and freelancers. A mug member approached us with the idea to start an art gallery in our beautiful cellar lounge, and we immediately knew this was a great idea — and La Petite Galerie was born.

La Petite Galerie features local artists who display their artwork for three months at a time, and we will host an opening for each show. See below for our first show!

George Ludway

George Ludway was a cartoonist and watercolor artist from Grand River, Ohio. After serving his country in the US Air Force pilot during WW2, he returned home to Grand River to the home he grew up in with his mother, sister and three brothers to practice and refine his talent as a full-time art cartoonist.

Throughout his life, he made a meager living selling his cartoons to publications like the New Yorker, Field & Stream Magazine and other publications.

At seventy-five years old, he decided to teach himself water color painting. His nick-name was “Shanty” because he loved making paintings of shanties around Lake Erie. As a self-taught painter, he created works until he was eighty-five. If you have ever been to the Lake Erie area east of Cleveland, you will relate to the scenes in his paintings.
