Art In The County 2008

My painting, “Monhegan Island Cemetery, Maine,” has been accepted into Prince Edward County’s annual juried show, “Art in the County.” I am delighted to have been included by the esteemed jury for a second year in a row. If you are in the area, come see the show! It runs from June 20 to July 6th. The opening reception is tonight at 7pm, at Picton Old Town Hall.

From the web site:


Art in the County is the best summer art show in Ontario.

Each year, Art in the County displays the work of County artists and artisans. Now in its 15th year, the exhibition is a highlight of the summer season in Prince Edward County, attracting residents from around the Quinte area and visitors from across Canada, many US states, Europe, Asia and Australia.

All of the art displayed at Art in the County is carefully chosen by three distinguished and experienced art experts who are professionally qualified jurors.

These jurors are solely responsible for the content of the show, for the five Jurors’ Choice Awards and five Honourable Mention Awards. The People’s Choice Award, determined by ballots completed by visitors to the art show, will be awarded at the end of Art in the County on July 6/08.
