LOWER MIKEFIELD – Over the past two weeks, 65 local artists have “painted cities” as part of the 2022 Open Paint “Open Our Cities” organized by the AOY Arts Center. The artists have been to Tyler State Park, Lake Afton, Cor Creek, Washington Crossing Park and historic Newtown, Yardley and Langhorne and the points in between.
The products of their work will be exhibited at the AOY Art Center from Saturday 28 May from 12 noon to 5 pm and then on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays until 12 June. Those interested can also view and purchase the artwork on aoyarts.org from May 28th.
Each artist can present only two of his best works. These works will be appreciated and awarded top prizes by nationally recognized and award-winning plein air artist Neil Hughes of Medford, New Jersey. The grand prize of $ 500 is sponsored by the Countryside Frames of Newtown. The awards program will take place at noon on Saturday, May 28, at the AOY Arts Center at Patterson Farm in Lower McEfield.
“This show is especially fun because people get to know places in their community and can purchase original art by local artists,” said Beth Savini, AOY coordinator.
AOY is located at 949 Mirror Lake Road in Lower McEfield at Patterson Farm. The gallery is open to the public free of charge and is hosted by participating artists.
