The Magna Arts Council is presenting a special free event to recognize our local artists.
On Saturday, September 28th 2013, from 1 ~ 3 p.m. at the Magna Library local artists and art lovers will gather to share their love of art in all its styles. Whether you are a creator of art, or just enjoy the occasional museum visit — whether you like your art bold or subtle, someone in the Magna area is creating art that you would love.
Special featured guest artists who are confirmed for this event include Manelle Oliphant and Bob Child and Don Prys, and others may be added as well.
This event really is free for all art lovers and artists. Any local Magna Artist who would like to participate in the “Show & Tell” part of this event can simply bring an example or two of their favorite art creations. Each artist will have a few minutes to show what they do, explain their inspirations, goals or whatever is important to their creative work.
Artists, you can bring the actual art, or even a series of images on a “flash drive” or as a PowerPoint presentation. (Plan on 3 to 5 minutes per artist, depending on the number who want to participate.)
No need to reserve in advance, just bring your art and join the fun. Or, if you have any any questions, simply post them below or send an e-mail to:
Magna Arts Event Info ( info @ art in magna . com )
Remember, this is not a contest or a formal gallery situation — more of a friendly gathering to share ideas and enthusiasm about art. There is no charge to attend or bring your art, and there WILL be a drawing where audience members might win Artsy prizes!
This event will be a friendly look at the past, present and future artists who live in or create art touching on the Magna area.

This event has several featured artists, but we are also actively seeking information about art and artists with strong local connections, including artists who are:
- professional or not
- past, present or future artists
- creating original
- other art styles by by local artists –
Note that this is NOT an art contest, but rather a session to talk about art as a hobby, a profession and a passion. Along with the popular Art Show and Contest at the Magna Main Street Arts Festival, this new event should help both artists and art lovers see and understand the variety of creative visual arts in our community.

This is the second in an annual series of “special events” by the non-profit Magna Arts Council to spotlight local arts creators. (The 2012 event featured Books & Authors of Magna , and other forms of artistic expression will be highlighted in coming years.)
