We’re celebrating the 22nd anniversary of Art in the County. This annual juried exhibition and sale showcases the artists of Prince Edward County. Once again, our event will take place upstairs at Books & Company, 289 Main Street, in Picton, Ontario, from Friday, June 26th to Sunday, July 12th. 2015.
The show is open daily from 10 AM to 6 PM (until 5 PM on Sundays, and until 3 PM on July 12th). Admission is $3 for adults. Children age 12 and under are FREE.
Three Canadian art professionals have selected all of the items in the exhibition. Their mandate includes nominations for receipt of the five Jurors’ Choice Awards and the five Honorable Mention Awards. The exhibition unveils over 100 pieces, and award winners are announced on opening night.
One more award remains, and that is the People’s Choice Award. Visitors are invited to cast their ballots during the three-week exhibition. The winner is presented with the award on the final day of the show.
Art in the County is considered one of the finest juried art shows in Ontario. Prince Edward County was selected as one of 50 “incredible” places in the world to travel to by Travel & Leisure magazine. Visitors are attracted to the County for being a “haven for creative types”. We’re very proud of our artists and the calibre of work they create for this show.
