Back again with another exciting show is one of Port Stanley's favourite annual rites of Spring, the Port Stanley Artists' Guild Show and Sale, which opened at the Legion on Friday night, June 3th, 2016. It runs Friday, June 3rd, 6 - 9PM, Saturday June 4th, 11AM - 8PM, and Sunday June 5th, 12 - 5PM.

The new collection of works, shows how the artists have all taken some new twists and turns in their growth as artists, and much of it is pretty impressive stuff. What you like in art is an extremely personal matter of taste and there is a wide range of styles and mediums in this show to appeal to a wide range of tastes. Importantly, all of it is well done.

This year's Judges were Corinne Garlick and Peter Karas. Corinne Garlick is a painter and teacher living in London Ontario. She studied art at Bealart and later earned her BFA at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design specializing in oil painting and sculpting. Peter Karas attended the University of Victoria and received a BFA in visual arts in 1996.
