For many years, the Vermilion Artists have been holding art shows so both new and artists mature in their experience can display their talent for the public to admire. The art show has roved to and fro from space to space over the years looking for a temporary home. This year the show was held in the library conference room again. The show seems to have found an annual place to temporarily claim as its own and was kept busy with a steady flow of foot traffic throughout the four days it was held.
This year there were three artists from Princeton Secondary School. Brandon Artis, Jessica Dennis and Jordyn Senger had their work on display. Having their show in conjunction with the A&W Show n’ Shine this year turned out to be a good move for Vermilion Artists. Long time Vermilion Artists member Mary Bedford who organizes the annual art shows said, “this is the best show we have ever had. We have had a lot of visitors and we have a great variety of mediums on display.”
The Vermilion Artists encourage all visitors to vote on their two favourite pieces. “We had terrific response from everyone,” Bedford continued. “We are very happy with the number of people who came to see the show and it is by far the best one we’ve ever had. We had a really good variety this year and were really happy with the amount of visitors who perused the show.”
