Sprucing up the Ariel


A worker sets about tuckpointing Monday between brick joints on the front of the Ariel-Ann Carson Dater Performing Arts Centre on Second Avenue in Gallipolis. Tuckpointing refers to the process of repairing mortar joints in stone or brick masonry walls by grinding or raking out the old mortar to a certain depth, and then filling in with new mortar. Last year, other historic downtown buildings also underwent tuckpointing, such as Our House Tavern on First Avenue.
