Clinton Art Show

The Clinton Art and Cultural Society hosted an enjoyable Art and Artisan Show from Friday to Sunday of the Thanksgiving weekend.

The Clinton Memorial Hall took on the appearance of an art gallery with pictures in numerous different mediums; oils, pastels, acrylics, ink, coloured pencil, watercolour, pastels, mixed medium, collage as well as photographs in both colour and black and white and clay sculpture. Vendors were on hand to sell their artwork including leatherwork, cards, magnets, etc.

Jordan Manning of Upper Hat Creek, an accomplished Spanish guitarist, provided background music during the opening reception on Friday event.

In all there were 119 items listed in the catalogue of the sale. A silent auction of donated items was also held to help raise funds needed to put on the show. The donations and support shown were really appreciated by the group.

Year after year I can’t help but be amazed at the number of really talented people in this area. If you missed the Art Show this year, make plans to attend next year. You won’t be disappointed.
