MOUNT GRETNA OUTDOOR ART SHOW -- August 20-21, 2011
Don't miss this years Mt. Grenta Art Show. It starts tomorrow and ends Sunday.
It is a wonderful time to walk through the streets of Mt. Gretna.
Every year, during the third weekend of August, this community of some 700 homes and cottages suddenly springs to life, welcoming 285 artists chosen through juried competition and 20,000 visitors who—by their presence—acknowledge the role that art plays in their homes, hearts, and lives. And every year, as thousands of art show patrons return, many others discover Mount Gretna for the first time.
The idea for an art show—originally an occasion for Mount Gretna's resident artists to display their works on the historic grounds of The Pennsylvania Chautauqua—began 35 years ago. Surrounded by hills and protected woodlands, it is a setting where artists, writers, musicians, and other talented inhabitants thrive year 'round, nurtured by an atmosphere of contemplative calm.
You will love it - and if you come on Sunday, please stop in and visit me or John at our Mount Gretna open Houses.
