Paint Avondale Sept.4

Each September the Hants County Arts Council and Avon River Heritage Society play host to Paint Avondale, a spirited open air painting event, which takes place along the historic waterfront in Newport Landing.

A part of our successful Artisans in Action series, this event invites the public out to interact with our local artists, while exploring our community.

For the duration of the event the Avon Spirit Shipyard will be converted into a pop-up gallery where participating artists can display and sell their work. A volunteer will be on hand to process sales, with 100% of proceeds going back to the artist.

Artists interested in participating can contact us by email at or telephone (902) 757-1718. $20 fee to participate.
