The annual Glebe Fine Art Show (GFAS) is increasingly popular with both artists and art collectors. For the 14th edition of the show, visitors will have a wonderful opportunity to view original artworks by acclaimed artists, many from as far away as Belleville, Perth, Montreal and from the Ottawa – Gatineau region. Their unique pieces will be shown over the weekend of September 14 and 15, 2019.
Many reasons motivate people to collect art. Many patrons purchase art simply because it brings them joy and they never get tired of looking at it. Whatever your reasons, visitors and art collectors will enjoy this year’s show. A total of 34 juried artists will be exhibiting at the Glebe Community Centre at 175 Third Avenue.
Four new artists will be part of the exhibition this year. Their art forms run the gamut from abstract and figurative paintings to landscapes and water paintings. You are in for a treat!
You will also love to see the most recent artworks by artists exhibiting regularly at this event. Art pieces use a variety of media such as oils, acrylics and watercolours, but also include mixed media, pastel, embroidery and fine art photography prints. See the full list of artists Rural Retreat by Bill Keast at www.glebefineartshow.ca.
Back by popular demand and to add to your convenience and enjoyment, Mato’s Café will be offering soups, light lunches, beverages and desserts throughout show hours (10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day). Free admission and door prizes!
Art lovers and collectors mark your calendars and come to the Glebe Fine Art Show to enjoy the beautiful art!
