The Bloomin’ Artists event will happen in Hampton for the 9th time on July 20th and 21st.
On Saturday, July 20th over 30 artists will fan out into beautiful locations in and around Hampton to paint small works of art that will then be sold by silent auction. The auctions will take place at the River Centre at 2pm and 4:30pm. This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase affordable paintings or drawings from well-known artists – or to (quietly) visit them while they create original work.
Then on Sunday, July 21st, talented artisans will be at the River Centre from 10am to 4pm for an ‘Artisan’s Market’ where they will be selling their jewellery, pottery, woodworking, paintings and more. Also on Sunday from 1-3pm at the River Centre there will be a free, supervised art program for kids of all ages. They will work on their own masterpieces to take home and all materials are provided.
The Town of Hampton and Hampton Alliance for Lifelong Learning (H.A.L.L.) are partners.
There is no admission fee and Bloomin’ Artists will happen rain or shine. This event is a fundraiser of The Hampton John Peters Humphrey Foundation (www.humphreyhampton.org) and proceeds help further its mission.
