Port Colborne Art Crawl 2013

art crawl logoDowntown Port Colborne will come alive after hours on summer’s first Saturday, June 22 from 5 to 11 p.m. The Downtown Art Crawl, the official partnership of local business & the arts, will feature artists from many genres. Live musical entertainment will waft from multiple venues, visitors can take in visual art in shop windows.

I’ll be at the British Baking Company this year located at 20 Charlotte St. – how appropriate!  Empire biscuits, scones, bakewell tarts and more!

Most of my artwork is at The Sanctuary Centre for the Arts in Ridgeway for my June solo show, but I’ll be bringing a few paintings from that show and also have two new owl paintings I am finishing up this morning.  I took some reference photos of “Boo” at my Meet the Artist event for my show at The Sanctuary and also had two little screech owls show up in our backyard. Here’s a sneak peek:

There are 56 locations with visual artists, musicians and hands-on art activities for the entire family! You can print the Art Crawl list of all the artists and their assigned locations. Stop in and say “hello” to me while you’re there!

You can print the Event Poster , or a smaller black & white Event map (to save ink) ahead of time to plan your evening!

You can read about all the events, and invite others from the Port Colborne Art Crawl page on Facebook too.
