While at the festival why not drop into our beautiful historic town hall to experience some incred- ible art work. We believe there must be something in the water, for there is no other explanation for the vast number of incredibly talented artists that call this area home. There is everything from wonderful paintings of farm life by Lynda Cunning- ham to beautiful landscapes by Harvey Walker. Mixed in is also the stunning and often larger than life contemporary works of Christa Gallant. Of course art is not simply defined by paint and canvas. Craig Telfer creates his own masterpieces from wood. And Anja Kooistra will have you amazed with her wonderful garden statues. The artists will be there in person to discuss their work and answer any questions you may have. The fine art show runs both days from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
