Art in the Attic is a weekend art show in Almonte, Ontario. It takes place at the Old Town Hall in Almonte, starting Friday, May 6th at 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The venue continues Saturday 10:00 am to 7:00 pm and finishes Sunday, May 8th with hours from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Driving from Ottawa to Almonte is a 35 minute trip, and this brings you to a beautiful, historic town with restaurants that cover the spectrum from country diner to modern haut cuisine. There are a number of shops along the main street, right around the corner from the Art in the Attic venue.
So, consider making a pleasant afternoon or morning trip out of it. Come and check the artwork, buy everything Chris Kiez has for sale :), then stroll the downtown and stop in a few shops and have lunch at any of the excellent restaurants that line Mill Street. Walking from the Art in the Attic venue at Old Town Hall, down Mill Street to check the shops and restaurants, and back is no more than 10-15 minutes. If you detour behind the post office on Mill Street, you can walk along side the Mississippi River on the River Walk.
I'll be hanging a variety of artwork done in acrylic prints, metal prints and gallery boxes. Some of what I'll have up is seen here. Other artists will be displaying prints, paintings, blown glass and other pieces well worth the drive to see.
Take care and see you there,
