Annual Kingsway-Lambton United Church Art Show & Sale

Twenty-one years ago, the Kingsway-Lambton Art Show & Sale was born! Searching for a fundraising event to help support a number of community charities and with the initial professional guidance of Judy Smith of Westmount Gallery, a group of dedicated members of Kingsway-Lambton United Church began inviting established juried artists and young emerging talent to come together for a show and sale. This has grown into a much anticipated spring event, attracting a growing number of art enthusiasts to a day of colour and exuberance, providing an opportunity to meet and learn from the artists and…BUY ART FOR GOODNESS’ SAKE!

Rose Kutzko & The Property Team continue to be a Proud Sponsor of the Annual Kingsway-Lambton United Church Art Show & Sale.

Join us on April 7, 2018 at this incredible fundraising event featuring 33 Canadian Artists!
