Artistry by the Lake takes over Queen’s Royal Park

 

 

Art, clothing, woodwork, glassware, jewelry, food vendors and many more brought people to Queen’s Royal Park in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

The Artistry by the Lake event, saw more than 80 artists and artisans participate, while local catering company Pig Out served up some pulled pork.

When asked what attracted visitor Cameron Grant to the event, he said it was “supporting artists.”

“People share their work and hopefully try to sell it and support that and hopefully that leads them to further business,” he said.

Another visitor, Doug Mantegnam said what makes these events special for him is the wide variety of art available and one-on-one interactions with the artists.

“They bring a lot of different forms of art in one media area. You got everything from jewelry to clothing to woodworking. A lot of unusual things sometimes and it’s quite interesting what artists think about their work,” he said.
