"Water" exhibition, Newmarket Group of Artists

Sun. 24 Jun, 2018 8:00 am - Sun. 22 Jul, 2018 12:00 pm

The Georgina Art Centre and Gallery are featuring an art exhibition presented by the Newmarket Group of Artists starting June 24th through July 22, 2018.

The theme for this exhibition is “Water”, because of the popularity of this subject with many of the gallery’s customers who purchase water-related art pieces to decorate their cottages. Because the "Water" theme is open to interpretation, this group exhibition will include artwork from a variety of artistic endeavours including oil and acrylic on canvas, ceramics, photography, mixed media, Pyrography on wood, stained glass and more.

 

Gallery hours: 10 am to 4 pm Tuesday-Saturday Sunday 12-4 pm Closed Monday
