Navan Arts & Crafts Group (November show)
Writers, Decorated Chairs & Local Makers in Navan for the 6th Navan Fine Arts Exhibition & Sale
Saturday and Sunday April 23-24, 2016, 10 am–4 pm
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Navan’s Decorate a Chair Project takes place on day 2 of our show on Sunday April 24. The public is invited to bring a completed decorated chair Sunday morning, with voting starting at 12 noon for chairs in 3 age groups: 13 & under, 14-18, and 18+. The idea is to then place decorated chairs around the village, creating places to meet, show our creativity, or simply sit. Show organizers are very pleased with the response so far from individuals, local businesses, clubs and service organizations. MORE
Local writers will be on hand signing and reading from their works: Saturday includes crime and mystery writer Vicki Delany, current President of Crime Writers of Canada, and mystery writer R. J. Harlick whose book Artic Blue Death was a finalist for the Arthur Ellis Award for best novel. Sunday we welcome crime and supernatural suspense writer Michael J. McCann and supernatural suspense writer Lynn L. Clark of Oxford Mills.
Spotlight artist Janice Moorhead creates stained glass “paintings” of landscapes and whimsical vistas that interact with light. Guest artists are Fibre Art by Wendo, a former animator who now makes whimsical felted animals, and Ima Tree, who sculpts 3D trees from wire.
Rounding out the show are another 13 artists from Navan, Orleans, Vars, Hammond, and Cumberland, exhibiting pottery, weaving, paintings, photography, wooden bowls, marquetry, and more. The 16 visual artists will be on hand all weekend.
The Navan Fine Arts Exhibition and Sale will be held in the lounge of the Navan Curling Club, 1305 Fairgreen Ave. in Navan ON. Admission and parking are free.
