Welcome to the New Season at Off Tract Art in Westminster - It's Time for a Change!

Welcome to the New Season - It's Time for a Change!

The kids are going back to school, the grass has slowed growing, and there can be a hint of fall in the evening air.  It's a great time to take a look at all that's happening at Off Track Art.

Off Track Art is proud and excited to welcome five artists to our collective:

  • Phil Grout, photographer and storyteller
  • Thomas Sterner, using paint & wood to query dimensions & ideas
  • Darlene Freas, photographer with digital inclinations
  • Melissa Little, emerging artist in oil & acrylics
  • Gail Martensen, interpreting nature in oils & acrylics
Our website has been updated with many more images than could be included here.  Please check out all our artists on
Second Saturday Salon Group
September 12 through November 7, 2015
Opening:  Saturday, September 12 5:30-7:30

            The word “salon” is familiar to many as it refers to people joining together to discuss and promote art, music, poetry, and literature.  It was in this spirit that the “Second Saturday Salon” was created: A group dedicated to sharing creative efforts in a wholly supportive, nonjudgmental environment. The Second Saturday Salon meets in an atmosphere of camaraderie and good fellowship, and its members’ work is made stronger by friendships, mutual encouragement, and gentle feedback.
            Please join us at 5:30pm on Saturday, September 12, which is Second Saturday in Westminster, for the opening of “Works by the Second Saturday Salon Group,” and partake in the generous and vibrant spirit of “salon!”
For more images from the Second Saturday Salon, please look at the OTA website under "Special Events."

Westminster has joined the growing number of communities creating events to bring people into town to enjoy the many dining, entertainment, and shopping opportunities that thrive within the city limits.  Downtown is alive, vibrant, and anything but cookie-cutter!

Come to see pottery, fiber art, paintings, photography, and more.  Off Track Art is open for your perusal, and it’s only a short walk to the Downtown Farmers Market, where the bounty of Carroll County gardeners, bakers, coffee roasters, and hops growers are available for your own farm-to-table experience.  Make it a fun day and come back for the Salon Opening that night.

Midnight Madness – It's not a Second Saturday, but lots of fun during Fall Fest in Westminster.
