PAINT PEGGY’S COVE 2019 DATES JULY 13, 14 & 15:
It is no wonder that so many artists live and work along the coast of Nova Scotia where they derive inspiration and rich subject material for their art.
This year’s fun three-day event highlights the beauty of the shorelines, towns, fishing villages, and heritage of Peggy’s Cove. Artists from several provinces will be bringing brushes, oils, watercolours, pastels, pencils and setting up on the rocks, wharfs and park areas to create new works inspired by this unique Nova Scotian community.
Soak up the process and fall in love with a painting! This is an opportunity to watch artists at work and to talk to them about the artistic process.
