The Erland Lee Museum's 17th Annual Local Art Show is off to a great start with more than 80 people attending the grand opening on Nov. 1. The show runs in the museum’s Carriage House until Dec. 6.

Thirty-seven artists are featured with more than 100 pieces of art on display. Sizes and styles range and include watercolours, pastels and oils, both framed and unframed originals, and prints.

Four pieces of wearable art or jewelry, and a clay sculpture have also been submitted.

The show has been an annual event at Erland Lee Museum since 1992. It is not juried and is designed to highlight local talent with reasonably priced works for sale to the public.

“I never cease to be amazed at how many truly talented people participate in this art show every year,” said curator Meaghan FitzGibbon.

Every year artists from Hamilton and surrounding communities display art. Two first-time participants in this year’s show are Danuta and Kasia Niton, mother and daughter from Dundas. This year Danuta has contributed four stunning acrylics and Kasia has submitted two pieces, an acrylic and a chalk pastel.

The show is open during the museum’s regular hours, Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a. m. to 4 p. m. and Sunday, noon to 4 p. m. The museum is located at 552 Ridge Rd. in Upper Stoney Creek.

Admission is free. Regular admission applies for the museum.
