Picton was alive with arts, entertainment and bursting with bargains all day Saturday and well into the evening.
The Picton Business Improvement Association’s Streetfest featured an artisan market, street performers, clowns and musicians throughout the downtown area. For the first time, Paint the County added a festival atmosphere as about 20 local artists were at work in various downtown locations. At the end of the day, their masterpieces were taken to the Art Cellar Gallery at Black Prince Winery for a silent auction. Forty-four of 52 pieces of art were sold.
“We raised just over $5,000 for Alternatives for Women,” said artist Aiden Haley, one of the organizers. “A big ‘well done’ is due to all the participant artists, Arts on Main Gallery, artists, volunteers, organizers and sponsors for this past weekend’s event – especially Melissa Dunnett for her hard work and organizational skills.
“The weather co-operated and the public certainly co-operated as a lot of people spent time talking and photographing the artists. The event did a lot to raise awareness amongst the citizenry of how vibrant our art community is.”
Haley noted sponsor/organizer Black Prince Winery sold 250 bottles of wine and donated $2 per bottle to the cause.
The day also featured Countystock – an evening of entertainment at Delhi Park. (Photos follow Streetfest/Paint the County photos below)
