Art Farm II is a gathering of over 30 artists, exhibiting and selling their work and is a family event that will include, food provided as a fundraiser for The Weyburn Youth Center, live music, face painting, kids activities, horse drawn wagon rides, weather permitting, as well as art in many mediums.
The event takes place June 14 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., at the van der Breggen acreage, located five minutes from Weyburn, on Highway 35 south, turn west (right) at TWP 080, turn south (left) at white barn.
Admission is $2, children under 12 free.
"Art Farm is an opportunity to expose our local talented artists, while giving the public the chance to view and purchase original works of art. What better venue than the Saskatchewan prairies?" said Heather van der Breggen.
"With the help of the van der Breggen family and a committee of dedicated artists, we are excited to facilitate the second annual Art Farm exhibition; which accommodates many artists and guests as well as live music in a rural setting. We have a diverse group of artist friends, both accomplished and emerging. Painters, potters, photographers, musicians, performing artists come together to give a market type experience in a casual country atmosphere," she said.
Art Farm has partnered with the Kinsmen to do a raffle of four works of art by local artists Rickee-Lee Webster, Regan Lanning, Terry Cruerer, and Kim Schneider.
There will be a bonus draw for a Knoxscooter donated by Ron Knox.
"We are grateful to the RM of Weyburn for sponsoring our entertainment and childrens activities," said van der Breggen.
Gather your family and friends to experience a unique shopping atmosphere, have a snack, lunch or supper, witness art being created, music being made amidst our beautiful prairie landscape.
