The unseasonably warm fall weather made for excellent al fresco art viewing during the 36th Annual Outdoor Arts Festival at the Bruce Museum this weekend!
The slightest tinges of autumn hued foliage on the trees added a splash seasonal color to a festival filled with a wide variety of impressive work in the mediums of wood sculpture, acrylics, oils, photography, etchings, bronze sculpture, mixed media and more.
A total of 92 juried artists from all over the country were on the museum grounds to exhibit and sell their 'originals only' (no reproductions) work.
The artists were actively and enthusiastically discussing their work and techniques with interested individuals and potential buyers. There were also a handful of artists live-painting and offering demonstrations of their processes throughout the weekend. Free art activities for children made this a fun and family-friendly event -- and everything happening in the Outdoor Arts Festival perfectly complemented the Bruce Museum's indoor exhibits, creating ample opportunity for visitors to make a full day of the cultural happenings!
There was live guitar music performed by Ed Wright and Annalisa Ewald PLUS food provided by Lobster Craft, Thai Taste, and Wendy's Weenies.
Visitors to the event from nearby (and far away) enjoyed the chance to meet artists and acquire eye-catching pieces of original artwork beneath the October skies.
