A group of local artists will showcase and sell their original art at the Autumn Art Festival in Port Perry on November 11th and 12th.
The event is hosted by the Port Perry Artists’ Association (PPAA), a not-for-profit organization that promotes art in North Durham.
“The vision we have is to promote artistic growth of members in the community at large. What we’re trying to do is encourage interest and knowledge of art and share that with the community,” said Jackie Creber, PPAA president.
PPAA’s mandate is to, only sell original fine art, not reproductions or prints. The art available at the show is all fine art and comes in a variety of mediums.
“It’s a show that features a variety of artistic work, including water colour, acrylic, oil, pen and ink. So, there is a variety of media that we use and it covers a variety of topics,” Jackie said.
There will be an array of artistic genres on display from portraits and landscapes to modern and abstract art.
Many of the artists featuring their work will attend the art festival, and will be available to discuss their art pieces.
“So you can actually meet the artists and talk to them and see what goes [on] behind developing and working on a painting,” Jackie said.
She added, the arts community in Port Perry is vibrant and filled with talented artists. The Autumn Arts Festival is one of the events during the year that showcases Scugog’s wealth of talent, and gives people an opportunity to view some breathtaking art.

SCUGOG: The Township of Scugog Fire Department is modifying the burn ban currently in effect to allow recreational burning only. Please ensure that you have a valid Recreational Burn Permit prior to burning and that all guidelines for recreational burning are adhered to.
KAWARTHA LAKES—City of Kawartha Lakes Fire Services has lifted the complete fire ban for Kawartha Lakes. Although the risk of fire is reduced, the Fire Hazard Index is set at extreme and residents are encouraged to use extra caution to ensure fire safety.
The lifting of the ban signifies a return to the normal application of provisions in Open-Air By-law 2016-110. The burn ban was put in place August 9, 2016 due to extremely dry conditions, and has been lifted as a result of significant rainfalls throughout the last week.
Flying Lanterns are never allowed to be sold or discharged within Kawartha Lakes as outlined in the by-law. During periods of dry weather, grasses, bushes and plants are more easily ignited by embers from open air burning.
