We’re all about (local) art.
We’re proud to be a part of Saint John, a community that is well known for embracing the arts. So naturally, we wanted to bring in work from our region’s artisans to the airport. Every day we welcome visitors from all over the globe, and we want everyone — from near and far — to enjoy these masterpieces from our corner of the world.
On the weekend of July 25th and 26th, the town of Hampton, its gardens and its river environment, will become the inspiration for visiting artists, as they draw and paint, create a series of small works inspired by the beauty of their surroundings as part of the “Bloomin’ Artists” fundraising event sponsored by The Hampton John Peters Humphrey Foundation and Communities in Bloom.
A silent auction for the small work created will be held throughout the weekend at the Lighthouse River Centre in Hampton.
There will be creative activities for children and the public is invited to visit artists as they work.
Proceeds from Bloomin’ Artists will go towards the continuing works of the Hampton John Peters Humphrey Foundation, a charitable organization committed to providing an ongoing tribute to John Peters Humphrey by educating individuals of all ages about his life and accomplishments; and to educating people about human rights.
Featuring members form both the US and Canada
