Celebrating the new Village theme “Timeless Lakeside Village,” WAC welcomes back Art on the Street for the sixth year. This year seven instead of six artists have transformed blank Muskoka chairs into one-of-a-kind pieces of art. And they can be yours!
Finished chairs and the artists will be revealed on the WAC Facebook page. Chairs will be revealed 1 July at the Canada Day Breakfast in the Village. Tickets will be on sale every Saturday in front of the United Church. Winners will be drawn at MUSICwestport on 20 August 2022. For more information, follow the WAC Facebook page.
Celebrating the theme “Keep A Song in Your Heart,” WAC welcomes back Art on the Street for the fifth year. Six artists have been selected to interpret the theme to transform blank Muskoka chairs into one-of-a-kind pieces of art. And they can be yours!
Finished chairs and the artists will be revealed on the WAC Facebook page. Starting July 5th, one chair per week will be auctioned off live on Facebook. Follow the WAC Facebook page for updates and bidding instructions.
Art on the Street is proud to reveal the six chairs for 2019. See them for yourself around Westport at local businesses, learn more about the artists, and purchase your tickets to win your favourite chair.
Thanks to everyone who contacted us. We will shout out next year once again!
WAC is proud to bring back Art on the Street for a third summer. Six chosen artists are given a blank Muskoka chair as their canvas to design and paint any way they choose. The theme for 2019 is “The Beauty of Westport”.
Finished chairs are displayed at businesses throughout the village during the summer and eventually raffled off in August at MUSICwestport. Raffle tickets can be bought throughout the summer and proceeds go towards local art events.
Artists will be chosen on a “first come- first served” basis.
On May 1, selected artists will pick up an unassembled Muskoka chair kit and urethane sealant at Herlehy Home Building Centre
Artists will paint their design on the chair, assemble and seal it. Artists can google: “one of a kind hand painted Muskoka chairs” for ideas
Each artist will provide a laminated biography and contact information submitted with their chair for display
Chairs will be “unveiled” and the artists introduced at the Westport Heritage Festival on 2 June 2018.
Chairs will then be “adopted” by six different businesses from 2 June to August 18
Tickets will be sold for $5.00 each on the chairs and the draws will be made at MUSICWestport. Proceeds will go to the Westport Arts Council.
The Westport Arts Council hopes you will be excited about the prospects of having your art on display in the village throughout the summer months.
