Visitors to the 35th Pelham Art Festival and Pelham Art Festival Online will be treated to artwork specially created for this year’s theme challenge.
As part of their collection, artists have been invited to create one artwork to celebrate ‘Beauty in Niagara’, representing a personal experience or interpretation of our beautiful Niagara Region.
These artworks will be featured in a special online Curated Collection and visitors to Pelham Art Festival in the Meridian Community Centre will get to vote for their favourite theme artwork. A People’s Choice award will be presented to the winning artist.
