Celebration of the Arts offering “Fringe” benefits to Studio Tour visitors
Art on the Fringe, a significant event during the month-long Celebration of the Arts, is returning again to this year’s line-up of events.
Art on the Fringe is a showcase for the creations of more than 20 established and emerging artists and artisans from Uxbridge and the surrounding area. It will be a venue where visitors can find paintings, fiber art, ceramics, jewelry, furniture, photography, and more.
This year, Art on the Fringe will be held in the schoolhouse and in tents on the grounds of the Uxbridge Historical Centre, on the same weekend as the popular Studio Tour, which is September 16 and 17, 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. both days. Music, coffee, cookies, washrooms promise to all be easily accessible.
This is the eighth year for Art on the Fringe, but it is the first year that it is being presented by the Artists of Uxbridge. This is a local group of painters that was established more than 12 years ago by Christine Chown and Susan Holt, with the goal of promoting and supporting art in the Uxbridge community.
Refreshments this year will be provided by local Girl Guide Pathfinders, and proceeds will go towards their planned trip to Ecuador next year.
