Battle of the Canvas

Last year we had a very successful "Battle of the Canvas". Artists signed up to paint a picture in a 20-minute challenge.  It was very exciting and the crowd enjoyed the action. The paintings were then auctioned off to support our Bursary Fund. If you are interested, please note on the bottom of your application form.

Bluegrass Festival

In celebration of this year’s Bluegrass Festival (being held the same weekend at Mat-te-Way Park), the Art Guild is encouraging exhibitors to include one or more themed pieces dedicated to this event. For example, Jack will be including his amazing metal guitar sculptures.
