Canterbury Art Show Adds Auction to Annual Event


St. George’s-by-the-River Episcopal Church recently announced a call to artists for its annual Canterbury Art Show… a Tapestry of the Arts, the premier local exhibition and sale of juried and non-juried artwork from throughout the area. The three-day event will take place on Labor Day weekend, from Saturday, September 2 through Monday, September 4. The preview Meet the Artists reception will be held Friday, September 1.

Although the juried and non-juried segments of the art show are now closed, a new feature has been added this year. In addition to the art exhibition and sale, participants can submit pieces for an auction that will take place on Sunday, September 3 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. The auction will allow for pieces that are too large to exhibit in the current halls and walkways of St. George’s. It will also allow for artists with special talents in three-dimensional artwork such as sculpture, glass, ceramics, or special hand-crafted jewelry. Information is on the website.

Proceeds from the art show directly benefit St. George’s-by-the-River and its outreach grants, which benefit more than 30 local agencies serving the needy of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, including Lunch Break, Family Promise, HABcore, 180 Turning Lives Around, and more. The Canterbury Art Show will again set aside a special non-juried area for Art-by-Teens.

For information on the 2017 Canterbury Art show, including the Artists Prospectus, go to www.canterburyartshow.com or email canterbury@stgeorgesrumson.org. St. George’s-by-the-River Episcopal Church is located at 7 Lincoln Avenue in Rumson.
