The Peterborough Examiner - - Local - MARLYS KERKMAM [email protected]

The other show in town last week­end was held at St. Matthew-St. Ai­dan Angli­can Church by the Buck­horn Artists Group.

This group of painters meets on the se­cond and fourth Tues­days of the month at the church, start­ing at 9 a.m., paint­ing, so­cial­iz­ing and hav­ing lunch.

The group ex­hibits its work at the same time as the Fes­ti­val of the Arts. All mem­bers can ex­hibit. There were wa­ter­colours, acrylics, oils, and pas­tels done of flow­ers, an­i­mals, pas­tels and land­scapes. The en­trance was free and the price of the paint­ing went di­rectly to the artist.
