Sunday, August 24, 2014 – 16th Annual Arts on the Avenue – 10am to 4pm on First Avenue in Ladysmith, BC 

On August 24 Ladysmith will be celebrating art, all kinds of art, on First Avenue.

Over 50 artists will gather early on Sunday morning with coffee in hand and their original art in the other, ready for you. Wander the streets and see what artists have brought this year: original paintings, jewellery, fabric art, carving, native art and more. The air will be filled with music and there will be a kids’ art space where young artists create their own one-of-a-kind work to take home.

Make sure you visit the artisan food tents and our very own community tents to find out what’s happening in Ladysmith.

This year’s guest artist is Michael Dean, a well-known west coast artist who has been documenting our coast for a number of years. Be sure to stop in and see him in the middle tent and say hello!

We hope to see you soon!
