SPRING replaces "Painting on the Green", which was our annual signature show that began in 1960 and was the forerunner of outdoor art shows in Canada.

SPRING continues to be a show open to everyone that allows novice and eperienced visual artists to showcase their talents together. Entries are not juried for acceptance, but a juror selects the winners for each category.
