The demonstrations are free, as are the light refreshments. Workshops with take-away items might have a small fee applied or a free-will donation requested to help cover the cost of materials.

July 29 and Aug 26 – Heart of Harrow Art Walk 4-9pm Downtown Harrow
This is a novel idea for a funky, relaxed outdoor show. Exhibitors will only be using blankets – no tents or furniture of any kind. The show won’t have anything that isn’t original art, and will run for just a few hours on a summer Sunday’s evening. Lovely idea.
Participating artists – Lori Moore and (tentatively) Kathryn Tisdale and TBA.

August -25 Art in the Lakeside Park Saturday 10 am – 5 pm Kingsville
Lakeside park is right on the shores of Lake Erie and boasts some huge, gorgeous trees to shade visitors and exhibitors alike. It has easy access parking and a large, flat, treeed area for the show.
