June 12, 2019 – We dedicate this year’s show to the memory of Otto Donald Rogers who passed away in April 2019. Otto was a renowned Canadian painter and sculptor and a friend to Art in the County.

April 25, 2019 – Moving up in the world! Art in the County will inaugurate The Mess Hall- a new multi-purpose event space on the street-level of The Armoury. The space will be easily accessible by the front doors at 206 Main Street, Picton. Those of you who attended last year will remember that the show was also held at The Armoury – in a newly-renovated lower-level hall.

February 25, 2019 – We are pleased to announce a new award for 2019. The Maison Depoivre Award will be presented by Maison Depoivre to an artist whose work demonstrates risk-taking and originality, technical skill and is thought-provoking. The recipient of the award will be invited to display her/his work at Maison Depoivre for the rest of the 2019 season once Art in the County closes its doors at the beginning of July. A complete wall will be dedicated to the award recipient until mid-October 2019 (depending on the artwork sizes, it could mean 4 to 6 artworks). The curators of Maison Depoivre will select 3 finalists from the artists presenting work at Art in the County. The three AITC jurors will determine the award recipient from the 3 finalists.
