ST. MARY — Jane Dippold sees this part of Ohio as beautiful country, and tonight, when her art exhibition opens at Arts Center in St. Marys, she will invite others to see the familiar countryside through her eyes.

Roughly two years ago Dippold started capturing specific places in Auglaize and Mercer counties and collaging them.
