Night of Artists 2008 Event – with just about every discipline of art under one roof, it is a jam packed three days. See visual art such as water color, original oil and acrylic paintings; photography; and sculpture. Buy crafts such as jewelery, hand bags and clothes. Listen to poetry readings, see a fashion show, watch amazing dancers, and experience live music from great local artists as well as ones from around the province.
