LYNDHURST ART TRAIL
Participant Sign up - Plans are finalizing but we still have room for a few more artists and would love to have you join us!
The Lyndhurst Art & Culture Tour is in association with Canada Culture Days and Ontario Culture Days. The goal of the event is to:
- Promote local: artist, artisans & makers; history and culture.
- Engage locals and visitors in the arts, history and culture.
For this event the concept of Art & Culture is very broad – anything that involves your creativity or our local culture and history is welcome!
With our goals in mind, you are welcome to have your pieces for sale, but the event not advertised as a ‘vendor show’. We encourage you to bring pieces that are for display/demonstration as well as for sale.
You are also encouraged to demonstrate your process
, either by working onsite or bringing pieces in various stages. People love to see how items are made and inspired!
There is no cost to you to participate. We do ask that everyone is set up and available for the full tour hours (generally 11am-4pm).
The first 3 boxes relate to your title for listing on websites and ads. An examples: Dawne Fiegen: Artist, Chair Caner. John Smith, Painter, Watercolour.
