Arts on the Avenue

Celebrating the visual arts community

Come discover artists across multiple visual art disciplines as they take over Bernard Ave to showcase and sell their work.

Arts on the Avenue is a single day outdoor visual arts event geared towards an adult audience with a curated marketplace, live demonstrations, hands-on art activities, and eclectic performances. Its purpose is to showcase visual arts in all its forms and connect the public with professional visual artists.

We welcome artists from all art disciplines. Through a juried selection process, we seek to ensure a diverse reflection of the artistic excellence within our community. Acceptance into Arts on the Avenue is based on quality, originality, and craftsmanship.
