“The quality of the work really is amazing,” said Focus Art member and participating artist Elaine Arkwright. “There’s a great variety of work for people to see. The exhibit is a great way to make art accessible for people to enjoy in a popular public space.”
Residents can stop in and view the work – and vote for their favourite in the People’s Choice Award – over the course of the next two weeks. The show is located inside the old GameStop space on the second floor of the shopping centre and admission is free.
The exhibition runs Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, both this week and next, during the following hours:
- Thursday/Friday: 10 am – 6pm
- Saturday: 9:30 am – 5:30 pm
- Sunday: 11 am – 3 pm
In addition to viewing the beautiful work on display, visitors can also purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win a painting by renowned local artist Pierre Giroux. Giroux is the creative mind behind the popular Historic Cornwall Walking Tour plaques that can be seen throughout the Downtown, Le Village and waterfront areas of Cornwall. Tickets for the raffle are $5 for 1 and $10 for 3 tickets.
The raffle winner, as well as the juried winners from the exhibit, will be announced on Thursday, December 1st.
