Art at the Gate is a non profit event that will explore and showcase the work of thirty accomplished NL artists and will include a full schedule of artist-led adult/children’s workshops, plein air (outdoor) painting, studio tours, pop up painting parties, social events and a new addition this year, a plein air painting competition. Highlighting this event is an exhibition of the art work of talented artists such as J C Roy, Cliff George, Scott Goudie, Louise Colbourne Andrews, Dave Hoddinott, Adam Young, Angela Hardy and many more.
Art at the Gate has something for everyone.
