Art Event Reveals an Inspiring Range of Talent

2nd Annual Sketch George Art Show

Simon Fine Art Gallery’s 2nd annual “Sketch George” Community Art Exhibit opens February 13. The public is invited to vote for their favorite artwork and voting will continue through the end of February. We hold this exhibit in the spirit of nurturing fun and creativity! Its a gentle reminder that creative expression holds an important role in individual and community well-being. There is an artist in all of us, all you have to do is get out of your own way and let that artist out!

2nd Annual “SKETCH GEORGE” Community Art Event

Five years ago, on a dark snowy afternoon, our furry friend showed up hungry and cold at our door. Needless to say, it was LOVE at first sight so we welcomed him into the gallery and he quickly became the ‘Cover Cat’ for Simons Fine Art Gallery. And folks travel from miles away just to visit him! And to commemorate that JOYFUL day, to inspire CREATIVITY and for the sheer FUN of it….we are holding a community art event in his honor! And we would like to invite you to participate in creating a piece of art to be exhibited at our gallery. Gift certificates will be given to the top three favorite pieces voted on by the community through the month of February.

Sketch George Event

The community is invited to vote for one piece they love the best! Judging event will start on Saturday, February 13, 2016 and end on Friday, February 26. Winners will be announced on Saturday, February 27.
