21st Annual Lakefield Jazz, Art & Craft Festival

Today I met with three other KAGS members at the 21st Annual Lakefield Jazz, Art & Craft Festival to help with setting up the tent.















Once the tent was set up I was given the back wall to set up my part of the art display.















The Festival is being held at the Isabel Morris Park, at 20 Concession St., in Lakefield, Ontario and the vendors will be there from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. and the music will continue through until 10 p.m.















There were a large number of people attending the Festival even though the temperature was 86F (30C) with the humidity making it feel like 97F (37C) and they were calling for thunderstorms in the afternoon.















If you have a chance, please come out and enjoy the Festival.

From spring through to fall they paint in various locations in and around Peterborough, including annual visits to Lang Pioneer Village.

During the winter months, they meet indoors at the Peterborough studio and work in various mediums completing works or beginning pieces anew.

Display at the MacKelvie Gallery

Today the KAGS Outdoor Painters' Group will hang a display of their artwork in the MacKelvie Gallery at the Lang Pioneer Village and Museum, located in Keene, Ontario.

While we were hanging our exhibit The Peterborough Examiner sent out a photographer/writer to take pictures of our Group hanging the show in the gallery and I was nominated by the Group to give him information about the Outdoor Painters and the Kawartha Artists' Gallery and Studio.

I also ended up having to go outside and sketch some of the buildings including the Lang Grist Mill which is celebrating its 175th year and Fife Cabin while being photographed.

The article will appear in the paper later today.

I will post the article at a later date together with the photographs.
