Did you know that there are nine locations in Kemptville where you can view, enjoy and even purchase original artwork for your home or office? Yep, right here in Kemptville.
The North Grenville Arts Guild (NGAG) would like to take this opportunity to thank the following businesses for allowing our artists to use their wall space to show some unique treasures: South Branch Bistro, The Crusty Baker, Rekmans Automotive, North Grenville Public Library, Salamanders Restaurant, The Cooperators/Carmichael Insurance, Yazdani Family Dentistry, Country Ways Custom Picture Framing, and Pixel Eye Care Centre.
When artists show their work and a piece is sold, the same artists will fill that space with a new piece of original art. At the end of two months, the visiting artists will take down their creations and another artist will take their place. This means that you get a steady flow of original art every two months in each location.
So, if you are in the market to update the walls in your living or office space, please consider dropping into any of the above locations. No need to travel to Ottawa to find beautiful original artwork; you only have to drop into these local businesses to shop locally.
