valeriekent: Scramble together a quaint, historic and picturesque small village, Millbrook, Ontario, with rolling hills, Cavan, Ontario and Cavan Creek, robust smaller farms, lovely people, bnbs and campgrounds and great places to stay, good food and a culture of operators striving to provide great service and you have a venue for artists who want to paint plein air. Add this to Canada Culture Days and you have the 1st Annual Cavan/Millbrook Outdoor Painting Festival.
It is a blind juried competition offering 1st prize $1500, 2nd prize $1000 and 3rd prize $500 plus a number of honorary mentions. There will be an option for the public to purchase "Fresh off the Easel" authentic, unique, original artworks. There will be an Awards Ceremony and a reception for the artists and their guests at a fabulous renovated barn. On Saturday evening we will have a Jamboree at the local Millbrook Legion so artists are encouraged to bring their instruments and their voices.
There are two art galleries, www.galerie-Q.com is donating the prize money and www.cavanarts.com is the founder of the festival.
Please commit now so we can build the greatest event. Registration NOW available at www.cavanarts.com
