ARTIST APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN. DEADLINE IS MAY 18TH!
Sponsored by Hear Well, Be Well
Join us for this new event consisting of a day-long art market featuring local artists along with live outdoor painting and music. A maximum of 20 local vendors will display and sell their art throughout the park. Artists and crafts makers of diverse disciplines are encouraged to apply including painting, jewelry, ceramics, clothing & fashion, and more.
The market also marks the return of the popular En Plein Air painting event. The event originally run by Kelly Holinshead of the Shutterbug Gallery, invites artists and area dignitaries to grab an easel and some paint before choosing an outdoor location downtown to inspire their creations. A few hours later, participants have to put down their brushes. The paintings are then given a bit of drying time before they are auctioned off to the public at 4pm, with proceeds going towards the Kareen Burn Visual Arts Scholarship supporting a local student studying visual arts related studies in a post secondary institution or program.
