Paint Ontario 2019 – Lots to see and do

posted in: News | 0

The Places and Faces of Ontario – from March 29 to April 20, 2019, one week later than previously. This puts the show into a better time slot for weather and travel and will allow the area’s many “snowbirds” to attend.

Paint Ontario is well known as a showcase for painters’ diverse Ontario images. This year, we continue the Faces of Ontario portrait award. This has added a new dimension to this already inspiring show.

We continue live demonstrations during show hours by local artists and the very popular weekend refreshment area where visitors can relax with a glass of wine or beer from a local winery or craft brewer, complemented with some tasty, locally sourced snacks.  Come, hang out and enjoy a total Paint Ontario experience!

Everybody is invited to the opening reception on March 29. This also kicks off an “Arts Season” which will run in to the Arts, Eats and Beats studio tour weekend at the beginning of May.

The Grand Bend Art Centre, organiser of Paint Ontario, is planning activities at the show and around town including Artist workshops (see in February for details).

Live painting demos will be taking place throughout the show by local artists including Grand Bend Art Centre Executive Director Teresa Marie Phillips, Suzette Terry, and more. As well, look out for events by partnering groups and businesses around the area, during this time period.

Once again Grand Bend Art Centre brings the Art Season to a close on May 4 with its annual concert at the Gables featuring the R&B trio, JW Jones. More information will follow in the New Year.

So, mark these dates on your calendar, tell your friends and come enjoy Paint Ontario and the area arts season.
