The Manotick Art Association is thrilled to announce that its annual spring show and sale, “Inspirations”, will be back again this April 19 to 21. The show will take place at the Curling Club in Manotick, 5519 South River Drive, and will feature the works of 44 area artists. The show runs Friday, 6 – 9 pm; Saturday, 10 – 4:00; and Sunday, 10 – 4:00. Entry is free and there is plenty of parking, as well as an accessible entrance.

The show brings a breath of fresh air into the community after a long winter through a feast of vibrant colours and images. Visitors can enjoy viewing landscapes, abstracts, florals, and wildlife painted in oils, watercolours, acrylics, pastel, batik, and wood. There are also several photographers showing their art. Many of the artists will be familiar to long-time patrons of Inspirations, but we are excited to welcome several new and exciting artists to the line-up this year. 

The show will also feature live music on two of the days. Scott Voelzing will entertain our guests on Friday evening. Saturday 1 – 3 will feature Chad Wolfe on fiddle and Sherryl Fitzpatrick on piano. As in every year, we will also have door prizes that can be won simply by filling out a ballot.

MAA has always taken pride in supporting charities through the proceeds of our spring show. This year, we will be supporting the Manotick Food Cupboard. We will also be collecting cash donations at the door for this worthy charity.

Come out to the spring show! We would love to see you and your family have an enjoyable time viewing artworks that are beautiful, inspiring, and family friendly. Art, in any of its forms, beautifies and enriches our world. The painting that you fall in love with can bring you peace and joy for many, many years.
