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 and REACH Camp artists also exhibited their talented gifts and helped the community with sales of their note cards and paintings.
Memories and sales were made...

The 3 day show was very well attended and a record number of 220 people enjoyed our Thursday night reception. Many of the visitors were artists, their friends, church neighbors and the community.

We had 695 pieces of artwork on display from 92 artists, in the Juried and Non-Juried Segments of the show. This included artwork from four teen artists.  

From this inventory, we sold 128 pieces of fantastic artwork, for over $22,000!

​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
