Celebration of the Arts 2014.
As artists and board members of our local arts council, we enjoy an annual Celebration of the Arts. Last night was this event and we had a very lovely time. Held at a local wine establishment, the event included tasting, appetizers, dignitaries, music and of course, locally produced and intriguing art.
Chocolates with our new logo
and oil infused popcorn.
Greenery from a local nursery
and a warm fire on a chilly night.
Wine tasting, art displays
and beautiful violin music.
Enjoying the evening with our County Mayor
and one of our councilors, along with our
MC for the evening, Ben.
The rest of our weekend is spent at the community centre (known as The Agora) where we have our artists represented with displays and demonstrations. A chance for our diverse population to experience the arts, up close and personal.
I was so excited to find out last night that our Mayor has invited my guy and I to the very large Celebration of the Arts in the city next to our little hamlet in April. We are her special guests and as President and Vice President of our Arts Council, we will be representing our community on that evening. I see a big shopping trip in our future to choose new outfits as the event in the city is very regal, not like our much more relaxed occasion.
What are your weekend plans this chilly February?
