Grand Bend, ON – The 26th annual Paint Ontario Art Competition, Exhibition & Sale opens its doors to the public at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, September 2, at Lambton Heritage Museum. The event will run until Sunday, September 25.
Long known as Ontario's largest show and sale of representational art, the 2022 edition of this popular event is eagerly anticipated by both the local community and art appreciators across the province.
The jurying process is now complete, and the show is preparing for its grand reveal. It will be the first event of any kind to be mounted in Lambton Heritage Museum's newly renovated exhibit space.
Fascinating artist demonstrations and outdoor events will take place throughout the run of the show. Highlights include May We Come Together on the weekend of September 3 and 4, a showcase for local area not-for-profit organizations made possible through the County of Lambton’s Creative County Grant Program, and Perch'n'Paint, a plein air competition on the weekend of September 9 through 11.
Organized by the Grand Bend Art Centre, a registered not-for-profit community group, Paint Ontario provides a unique opportunity for emerging artists to showcase their work and an unmatched opportunity for buyers to view and acquire it. Monies raised in sales commissions go straight back into cultural development programs within the community.
