SCUGOG: Get ready to see the latest and greatest work from the Port Perry Artists’ Association - during the collective’s annual Autum Art Festival!
Taking place on Saturday, Nov. 8 and Sunday, Nov. 9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. , the show will see a gallery, refreshments and artist demonstrations inside the Scout Hall, located at 15585 Simcoe St. North, Port Perry.
According to Karen Fox of the PPAA, 21 local visual artists will showcase their work, featuring mediums such as watercolour, oil, acrylic and pen and ink drawing.
“Following the tradition of the Impressionists, our group has a strong following in the ‘En Plein Air’ or ‘In the Open Air’ style of painting,” said Ms. Fox. “Visitors to the show will also see many artists creating work among the aisles and doing live demonstrations - it’s very exciting.”
Other demonstrations taking place this weekend include landscapes done in oil paint, and a pastel artist who will create portraits of patrons at the show.
“The show will be all weekend long and the artists are available to talk while they work, so people will be able to watch the creative process in action,” said Ms. Fox. “I had a little girl run up to me at last year’s show and shout,’You are a real artist!’ It’s exciting to see how work gets from canvas or paper to inside a frame.”
For further information about the PPAA or their Autumn Art Festival, please phone Karen Fox at 905-213-3729.
Admission to the art show is free, and refresments and door prizes will also be available.
