ArtLocal Art Show Presented By ArtsConnect™
ArtsConnect brings the community together with a two-day celebration of the arts. This year the show will be at The Grove Event Center, themed as a 1920's-30's speakeasy with swing jazz by The Limehouse Ramblers on Friday night!
The Grove is located at 9158 Winton Road, Building B. (Behind the Arts Center) The beautiful event center will will hold a gallery of artwork from residents of the community and surrounding cities.
The art show will kick off on Friday, October 6 with the themed evening artist reception. (Artwork is not themed - just the venue) We will embrace The Grove's history of a 1930's open air dance hall and reminisce to the days of speakeasies. We encourage you to dress the theme if you like! Meet the artists, enjoy desserts and live music, and show your support of ArtsConnect in the silent auction and raffle. An artist awards ceremony will be held at 9pm. Most of the artwork will be available for sale with full proceeds going directly to the local artists.
The gallery will reopen on Saturday, October 7 from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. for art lovers to take a closer look, and enjoy or purchase the art at their leisure. In addition to the show, you can set an appointment for fairy hair. (10 strands for $25.) Book your appointment early HERE.
All ArtLocal artwork will be entered for the show's three cash awards; 1st place will win $250, 2nd place will win $100 and 3rd place will win $50. The award announcements will be made on Friday, October 6 at 9p.m. A ribbon will be awarded for "People's Choice" on Saturday.
