Guelph, ON, June 15th 2018  -

Returning for its 16th year, Art on the Street organizers are pleased to invite you to the Saturday, June 23rd show. Guelph’s leading art fair will showcase an array of original work and exciting projects from nearly 100 established and emerging artists.  You can view the full event program, with a list of exhibitors and information on other art events in the Downtown core, here.

Starting at 10am, visitors can walk this open-air art gallery in the beautiful and historic setting of Quebec Street.  Ceramics, jewellery, acrylic paintings, photography, textiles and much more will be on display, accompanied by the artists who made them. 
Each year the organizers choose a local artist to contribute a piece of their work and become the event’s ‘poster artist’. 

This year, oil painter and winner of Art on the Street’s People’s Choice Award, Jessica Masters was chosen to have her work featured on the event publicity.  Jessica says “amongst all the talented artists who participate in Art On The Street it is such an honour for me to have been chosen as the poster artist for this year’s event. It's so nice to live in Guelph and feel the continued support of the arts from our city. I love exhibiting in this show, its juries in some if Ontario’s best artistic talent, it’s very well organized and promoted, and the Guelph community have always come out to show their support on what is always a fantastic show”.

For those with young children, St George’s Square will be transformed into the Children’s Arts Festival.  As usual, it’s all about the kids making the art.  Join the Children’s Art Factory, Guelph School of Art, Play with Clay, the Guelph Public Library and the Suzuki String School of Guelph as they fill the space with creative activities.

Returning for a 2nd year, the Mini Maker Market featuring kids selling their wareswill appear in front of Old Quebec Street Shoppes.  10 cute mini market stalls provided by the Children’s Art Factory will feature goods made by little hands.
Find food on the street too as Canadian restaurant Miijidaa and vegan eatery Boon Burger bring a selection of quick and easy bites outside.  They will be joined by Downtown Guelph’s favourite food truck the Street Food Truck, as well as ice cream served from an Airstream by Bluewater Creamery.  The Capistrano Café is the best spot to eat lunch whilst watching the kids play. There are numerous Downtown restaurants and diners ready to serve up a variety of delicious food.

Art on the Street is a free event which welcomes art lovers of all ages, and is co-hosted by the Downtown Guelph Business Association (DGBA) and Guelph Arts Council (GAC).  To keep up to date on all the fun things happening during the event, please visit our Facebook event page.
