Maybe 13 is an unlucky number. The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly thrown a monkey wrench into the plans of many but A Gift of Art will not be deterred. As we have done for our Kid’s Summer Art Camp, we have found a way to hold another signature event safely in 2020.

Our 13th Annual Art Show has been reinvented for the COVID era. Instead of one large indoor event, we will be hosting 9 weekend outdoor Patio Art Shows. Each event will feature 3 artists and allow for ample physical distancing. It’s a safe, fun way to enjoy the art of hard-working local artists this summer. As always you will be able to see the work, meet the artists and purchase something special to bring a little more art into your life. Instead of one fun weekend however, there will be 9 of them over the course of the summer. It’s a win all ’round!

We will have a lot more information over the next few weeks – keep an eye on the website for details – but here is the schedule to date. All shows run 10:00 am – 4:00 pm, Saturday and Sunday, weather permitting.
