The boutique will showcase a plethora of smaller paintings priced less than $200 along with prints, note cards, and painted giftware.
Show organizer and Guild member Sunny Mills said, “In addition to fine art painting from 35 Beach Guild of Fine Art members, the three-day show will also include a boutique with smaller paintings and other original works of art.”
The Beach Guild of Fine Art started as a group of seven local artists dedicated to promoting and encouraging the appreciation of fine art in the Beach community. Since 1994 the Guild has been giving local artists a platform to showcase their work, and earn a name for themselves.
Anyone who attends this weekend’s show and sale can fill out a ballot to be eligible to win an 8” x 10” painting by a Guild member
Admission to the Winter Show and Sale is free, however those who show up are encouraged to bring a donation of a non-perishable food item to be given to a local food bank.
