Arts News - AOM [Part 2] Submission Announcment: Celebrating the Legacy of Art

Arts on Main is in the process of some exciting changes and opportunities. This year AOM Part 1 was launched in the spring and was in partnership with Matthews House Hospice. This exciting display of art that reflected the theme of compassion was truly a delight. Arts on Main Part 2 will see the relocation of AOM to the 2018 fall season. This will be a juried show and the artwork will be displayed in the front window of businesses in Beeton, Tottenham and Alliston.

Arts On Main [Part 2]: Celebrating a Legacy of Art is an invitation to artists to share what impact legacy has made on their work. Was there a great influence that inspired you? What artistic legacy was given to you or will you pass down? What is legacy to you? These are just some of the questions that an artist may ponder as they create their work. This engaging collection of art will exhibit itself throughout shop windows in downtown Alliston, Beeton, & Tottenham from September 27 - October 18.

For the SSAC 'Legacy' is what we will be celebrating this fall with our 25th anniversary. September 2018 is a time for us to celebrate our members, our mission, and our impact on the community as a whole. We will be inviting everyone to join us in celebrating during the opening of Arts on Main.
