Art Show May 3-5 – the Stittsville Legion on Main Street will be hosting an art show organized by Richard Gagne, Legion member and former Stittsville resident. Richard says, “This will be an amazing Sale and Show of original art from 25 great area artists! Great Art does not have to be Expensive Art. If you are looking to redecorate or simply see what’s out there in the Art World this event is the place to be”. You can visit this free art show: May 3 from 3-9pm; May 4 from 10am-5pm; and May 5 from 10am-4pm. “Giving back is also part of what we do. That being said, we will be donating $1,000 to Veterans/Stittsville Legion – so come out and support the Artists” said Richard further. If you are in the hunt for art, this would be a great opportunity to support two good causes.
