Summer Fleur - Photography by M.L.Holton

At the height of summer, operatic drama seems to overtake the persistent push of vegetation.  It can be overwhelming at times, even claustrophobic with all that smothering overgrowth ... (Horatio bellows: "Virginia creepers BE DAMNED!")  And yet, in the midst of it all, extraordinary colour plumes and exquisite delicate petals hold ground.

MLH on 'Art Jury Duty' for Inaugural 2016 'Art-in-the-Park', Country Heritage Museum in Milton, Ontario, Canada

Back roads, North Halton County - by m.l.holton
Very pleased that I can now announce completion of one intense day of art jury duty earlier this month with two esteemed colleagues, (from the Dufferin County Museum & the Ontario Crafts Council Board), for the inaugural 'Art-in-the-Park' exhibit at the incomparable Country Heritage Park in Milton, (formerly known as the Ontario Agricultural Museum), for August 21st, 2016.

There were a number of outstanding entries from both local and provincial artists for us to consider. As jurors, our goal was to aim for a good cross-section of works - and disciplines - that best reflect the strong abstract & realist trends in contemporary art and craft practices. We're sure the public will enjoy the chosen 35 exhibitors work very much. Details about the showing artists can be found - here. 

The Show & Sale will run from 10am-5pm, 
on August 21st, 2016, at the Country Heritage Park.
