28th PSAG Annual Show and Sale
Mayor David Marr and Rosemary Nagel Open the Show

Back again with another exciting show is one of Port Stanley's favourite annual rites of Spring, the 28th Port Stanley Artists' Guild Show and Sale, which opened at the Legion on Friday night, June 1st, 2018. It runs Friday, June 1st, 6 – 9 pm, Saturday June 2nd, 11 am – 8 pm, and Sunday June 3rd, 12 – 5 pm.

This year Mayor David Marr opened the show and later took a tour of the new collection of works on display. This 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 very well done.

This year's Judge was Josepha Van den Anker. Josepha Van den Anker is a painter that attended The Ontario College of Art, and is a Fine Arts, Honour's Graduate and the recipient of the Forsyth Scholarship for "Excellence In Painting 1976".
