27th PSAG Annual Show and Sale
Unexpected Visitor by Candy McManiman

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 2nd, 2017. It runs Friday, June 2nd, 6 – 9 pm, Saturday June 3rd, 11 am – 8 pm, and Sunday June 4th, 12 – 5 pm.

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.
