THE UPS Store Bridgewater has been an ongoing supporter of the Afterglow Art Festival over the last few years. They understand the importance of art and culture and how it can help create a vibrant community where folks want to live, work and play. They have helped in creating beautiful signs that you will see shortly around Lunenburg County as a friendly reminder of the upcoming festival. Make sure next time you are in to thank them for their support of Afterglow Art Festival - a community initiative.
My name is Janet Tanner. I am a local Artist from the South Shore. My Studio "Fresh Functional Art" is located 7 minutes from the Historic Town of Lunenburg , at 88 Front Centre.
I work with acrylics, but also some mixed media. I will have some of my original work on display and also reproductions of many other of my paintings. You can take a peek on my website and" like" me on my Facebook page for a preview of what you will see at the Big Event. My website is: freshfunctionalart.com and my Facebook page is: www.facebook.com/freshfunctionalart.
I enjoy taking part in the Afterglow Program. I can show off my work and meet everyone to talk about it. I can, handle critiques. It is fun to share Art. This festival is a wonderful opportunity for myself and the community to be exposed to many types of Art forms. To be entertained, be inspired, and just simply have fun. I hope to meet you there.
After experience the Afterglow Festival as a participant during it's inaugural year, we at Lighthouse NOW knew we had to be involved because it aligns with our core values. It's a positive community event that brings together many sectors in one of the communities we serve, on King Street, one of the most important business areas in Bridgewater. It showcased much of what we have to offer as a community and brings people from all walks of life to experience the downtown core. We are so fortunate to have so many hard working and creative volunteers to help put this together and we're so proud to be a part of it.
