Art Fayre is hours away!

Last Wednesday, the Art Fayre committee gathered at the Glengarry Pioneer Museum to set up the show. It was a steaming-hot day, but we managed to arrange and hang all of the beautiful artwork without succumbing to heat stroke.

Lunch break for members of the committee!

Every year, Ronna's birthday falls on or near Art Fayre. Barb baked Ronna a wonderful carrot cake with cream cheese icing, and we had an impromptu birthday celebration! If you'd like a sneak peak at Ronna's drawings, check out her blog.

If you're in the area, tune in to "In Town and Out" on CBC radio Saturday morning (91.5 in Ottawa, 95.5 in Cornwall) to hear the announcement Natalie recorded for Art Fayre. We are looking forward to seeing you this weekend, rain or shine, and hope to get more people out from Ottawa and Montreal. Wouldn't it be wonderful to sell every piece of art this year?

Come see us in Dunvegan this weekend! Beautiful art, a vernissage, artist demonstrations, yummy refreshments, and the talented David Keller playing classical guitar. What more could you ask for?

Art Fayre this Saturday and Sunday!

If you want to find out what this is, come to Art Fayre this Saturday and Sunday at the Glengarry Pioneer Museum in Dunvegan, Ontario. A sunny weekend is forecast and we hope to see our largest crowd ever! The show is an opportunity for you to meet talented local artists and take home some one-of-kind art, all while helping to raise funds for our jewel of a museum.

Dunvegan is an hour east of Ottawa, and hour west of Montreal, and close to Cornwall and the Massena, NY border crossing. Why not take a leisurely drive in the beautiful Glengarry countryside this weekend? Come see us at Art Fayre! You can take in the show, meet the artists at the Saturday Vernissage, watch artist demonstrations on Sunday, and enjoy free refreshments. 

We're looking forward to seeing you!
