This September the Hants County Arts Council and Avon River Heritage Society are once again playing host to Paint Avondale, a spirited open air painting event, which takes place throughout the historic communities of Avondale and Newport Landing. Sunday, Sept. 4th from 12 till 4.
A part of our successful Artisans in Action series, this event is sure to bring many people out to interact with our local artists while exploring our community. To make things even more interesting for artists and visitors, this year we are offering even more locations for artists to create!
All locations will be near the museum, with views of the community with its many 18th century homes or the beautiful Avon River.
For the duration of event the Avon Spirit Shipyard will be converted into a pop-up gallery where participating artists can display and sell their work. The boat house will also serve as our home base for the day, here maps and artist information will be available for visitors. A volunteer will be on hand to process sales, with 100% of proceeds going back to the artists.
The fee to participate is $20 per artist. Artists are asked to please book a spot and forward us their bio or a brief write-up prior to July 31st. Only those registered before August will be included in our promotional material.
Now in it's 4th year, our Artisans in Action series is building up quite the momentum and each of this summer's events have been very well attended. We expect that Paint Avondale will be no different.
Interested artists can contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone (902) 757-1718.
