garrison artists on location
Monday, May 6, 2013 at 06:00AM in ACTIVITIES, art with kids


Our family is excited to be heading to Garrison on Saturday for the one of our favorite events, Artists on Location. We were introduced to Garrison Artists on Location by my brother-in-law Ben several years ago and have been regulars ever since. Ben's brother and father are the auctioneers of the event, a lively auction in a beatiful setting, that happens twice a year. In past years, artists would gather in the morning and set off to paint along the river or in the area, and their works were auctioned off in the afternoon. This year the event has been renamed Riverside Art Auction and the artists will be able to submit any work they like, rather than that days work. More work is on display in the Studio and is part of a silent auction. On a beautiful spring day it is a real treat to spend the afternoon on the river, have a glass of wine, and possibly even buy a painting, while the kids frolic with new friends.
