|Art! Music! Food! Fun! From 2-10pm at Mackenzie Hall.|
Here's an intriguing outdoor event for your weekend entertainment... and it's FREE!
COMMON GROUND ART GALLERY, a non-profit, non-juried, artist-run gallery, is celebrating it's 25th ANNIVERSARY on SATURDAY, AUGUST 2Oth, 2011, at MACKENZIE HALL, 3277 Sandwich St, on Windsor's historic west side. And you're invited to the party!
The music roster is fabulous! Some of the Snark's favourite local musicians will be performing in the gazebo located in the small park tucked just behind Mac Hall. There will be wholesome and delicious BBQ on the front terrace (vegetarian options available), and a great big retrospective art show in the little gallery that could.
Twenty-five years is an incredible achievement for a non-profit, volunteer-driven arts organization, and after hosting more than 500 art shows in this town, COMMON GROUND really does deserve to be celebrated. A quarter century of tenacity!
The party runs all day -- from 2 o'clock until 10 o'clock. Come out for some artsy good fun!
