It’s time for a Harvest of Art!
Come gather some treasures at the Yarmouth Waterfront Gallery on Sunday, October 25th. from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Artists will be on site to talk about their work, and to offer some really good deals on quality art.
You’re invited to come by, enjoy light refreshments, and harvest a lovely piece of artwork or two!
The Waterfront Gallery will close for the season at the end of October, so this is a wonderful opportunity to see work by local artists, and to do some early Christmas shopping.
Hope to welcome you on the 25th!
Our featured artists for the end of September and early October are Mariette Amirault an Imelda Currens, two regional artists from Pubnico. Both paint local subject matter and have individual styles of presentation. Please visit the gallery to see this work in person. We are sure you will enjoy it.
