Art in the County
Fri June 23 - Sun July 9
Art in the County 2017 is open to the public from Friday, June 23rd to Sunday, July 9th. Hours are 10 AM to 6 PM daily, until 5 PM Sundays, and until 3 PM on July 9th.
Art in the County is an annual juried exhibition of the highest quality of work by renowned County artists and artisans.
County artists submit their works to three distinguished and experienced art experts who are professionally qualified jurors. These jurors are solely responsible for selecting the content for the show, the five Jurors’ Choice Awards and five Honourable Mentions. On Art in the County’s opening night, the jury’s selections—more than 100 pieces—are unveiled and the winners announced.
During Art in the County’s three-week run, visitors are invited to vote for the People’s Choice, which is awarded at the closing of the show.
Location is above Books & Company in Picton.
