The annual art sale will take place Oct. 20

“It’s very social,” said participant Margaret-Ann Hooper. “We have 25 members and some of them have been coming for 20 years, one man is 92 and is from Italy.”

The artists will be selling and showing a variety of pieces that they have been working on throughout the year and look forward to welcoming guests with door prizes and refreshments.

Guests looking to go home with a new piece of artwork for their home are asked to bring cash.

The event will take place Oct. 20 from 10 a.m.until 3 p.m. at the Parkinson Activity Centre.
