"Art Local" Art Show Presented By ArtsConnect™

ArtsConnect brings the community together with a two-day celebration of the arts. This year, we will return to the The Centennial Barn, located at 110 Compton Road, where we will hold a gallery of artwork from residents of the community and surrounding neighborhoods. 

The art show will kick off on Friday, November 12th with an evening artist reception. Light appetizers, live music, silent auction, raffle and a "People's Choice" award will fill the evening and give neighbors a chance to mingle and enjoy the art. There will be artistic performances and a few added surprises.  Most of the artwork will be available for sale.

The gallery will reopen on Saturday, November 13th from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.  for art lovers to take a closer look and enjoy the art at their leisure. Workshops and artist education session are being scheduled. (Check here for details as they become available)

I am an artist:

Have you ever wanted to show your artistic talent, but have been too intimidated to try? We want to take that fear away by inviting all artists in the community to show up to three pieces of art in the ArtLocal art show. This is a non-juried show that will celebrate art in all levels of ability. Your art will be on display for two days and you may sell your work.
