Black Prince Winery is proud to again host the 3rd annual Art on the Shelf, Original Art Show and Sale, May 10th to May 26th with an opening reception on Thursday, May 9th from 7pm – 9pm.

The premise of the show is to promote the symbiotic relationship between art and literature. The artists will be inspired by their favourite book.

This new show, located in the art cellar, will house almost 3o local artists utilizing a wide variety of disciplines including;  fabric art, pottery, sculpture, photography, oil, watercolour, encaustic and acrylic paintings.

Visitors are invited to experience Art on the Shelf in the relaxing ambiance of Black Prince Winery, renew memories of your favourite author through the creative eye of our many talented local artists and enjoy delicious wine.

Funds raised from this show will be used to further improve landscaping at  the front of the library. To date the Friends of the Picton Library have raised  in excess of $150,000. Through donations, grants, book sales and the support of  the community we have installed an elevator, built a Teen Room, made  improvements to the Children’s Library, installed a front door and started the  landscaping project.

For more information please contact Doug & Evelyn Sloane at  613-476-3277.

Thanks again to Doug and Evelyn for volunteering to make art shows like this available in our community !
