The Community was helped...

Each day, our show patrons had the chance 
to win artwork that was 
graciously donated 
by our artists. These 
proceeds benefited 
our church and 
community outreach 

St. George's young artists also exhibited their talented gifts and helped the community with sales of their paintings.
Memories and sales were made...

The 3 day show was very well attended 186 people enjoyed our Friday night reception and 465 people visited the show. Many of the visitors were artists, their friends, church neighbors and the community.

We had 763 pieces of artwork on display from 97 artists, in the Juried and Non-Juried Segments of the show.  

From this inventory, we sold 149 pieces of fantastic artwork, for over $23,625!

​Please take a look at our album. There you will see the wonderful art on display, our artists enjoying the show, volunteers and our artists working on our church premises
