“This is a great opportunity to see several newly emerging and established artists’ recent works in one location,” said Canton Arts Coordinator Jennifer Tobin. “We are grateful to be able to display a wide variety of art and creativity that showcases the wide range of talent available in this area and their shared support and commitment to the arts.”
The Canton Fine Arts Exhibition began in 1993 as an activity of Canton Project ARTS, a cultural programming body which provided various arts-related events and activities to the community. In 2004, Canton Project ARTS was absorbed by Canton Leisure Services and is currently guided by the Canton Commission for Culture, Arts and Heritage.
