Scenes of Sandbanks and Beyond celebrates all that is County

The 12th annual Scenes of Sandbanks and Beyond annual original art show and sale opened today to celebrate all that is ‘The County’ – particularly its three provincial parks and the burgeoning wine industry.
Forty-one local artists are exhibiting their work using a variety of disciplines including; fabric, glass, sculpture, photography, oil, watercolour, encaustic and acrylic paintings.
This year’s featured artist is Carol Burrill, whose work is featured on this year’s poster. She depicts the diversity of the County with her pendant, a piece of sculpted stone set in sterling silver. Carol, jeweler to The County, owns with her husband Rick, Riccaro’s Design  in Picton.  Three young, upcoming artists in this year’s show are Sarah Renaud Wilkinson, Shelby del Gatto and Jacob Wiens. Sarah wowed visitors to Art in the County with her pencil on board ‘Creature’. Shelby’s art work is featured on a white wine label titled ‘Dragonfly’ produced at her family’s winery Del-Gatto Estates. Wiens, a Grade 9 student is a wood carver and spent time this past summer being tutored his grandfather, Bill Naylor, a carver of note. Jacob has won awards in the Ward World Championship Wildfowl Carving Competition in Ocean City, Maryland.

Proceeds from this year’s show will be directed through the Friends of Sandbanks Park, toward a permanent sign to mark Lakeshore Lodge in Sandbanks Provincial Park. The sign will commemorate one of the most historic and significantly important buildings in the County.

Visitors are invited to experience Scenes of Sandbanks and Beyond in the relaxing ambiance of Black Prince Winery’s Art Cellar. Renew memories of The County through the creative eye of The County’s many talented local artists and enjoy the delicious wine. The show will run on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 11 am to 5 pm from Oct. 20th to Nov. 6th
