Whether you’re there to buy or simply stroll along and enjoy the beautiful works created by local artists, the Bowker Creek Brush Up Art Show & Sale has a little something for every art lover.
On Sunday, Aug. 11, from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., the shady banks of Bowker Creek will come alive with the sights and sounds of art, from pieces already created and those in the making. The free event happens off Hampshire Road, between Oak Bay Avenue and Cranmore Road.
More than 40 artists are booked for this year’s Brush Up, including internationally renowned painter Pat Martin Bates. Visitors will have a chance to interact with her and others to learn more about their various art forms.
