There is a lot of artistic talent within the Barrhaven community, and much of it will be on display at Paint the Town, the 12th annual Fall Show and Sale by the Artists of Stonebridge (AOS). The event will take place on October 22-23 from 10 am to 4 pm at the Cedarhill Golf and Country Club, 56 Cedarhill Dr.
You won’t want to miss Barrhaven’s largest sale of visual art by local artists, which features a wide variety of original artwork in many different styles and sizes. It’s a must-see event if you are decorating your walls, looking for that special gift, or even just love beautiful art!
AOS is a not-for-profit group that was started 13 years ago by a group of artists who had a common desire to promote visual arts in the community. The group has now grown to around 40 visual artists and it is very active. You may be familiar with their ongoing exhibits at the Minto Recreation Complex, the RBC Royal Bank at 4120 Strandherd Drive, and the TLC Legal Office at 240 Kennevale Drive.
The Fall Show is sponsored by CPI Interiors, Lépine, MacMillan BMO Nesbitt Burns, Royal LePage, Barrhaven Auto Centre, Capital City Heating & Cooling, TLC Legal, and Myers Barrhaven Toyota.
It is a core value of AOS to give back to the community, and a portion of this year’s proceeds will go to support the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind (CGDB) and the Art for Aid Project, an organization that supports Canadian First Nations, Inuit and Metis art and cultural programs.
