The art gallery’s Spotlight series returns, spotlighting Northumberland artists

The Art Gallery of Northumberland’s (AGN) annual arts education fundraising event is back, providing in-person fun, while spotlighting local artists across the county.

AGN recently announced the return of its flagship Spotlight Series event – ​​and a return to an in-person, live, paid event, bringing together music, multimedia and visual arts to live audiences.

“The return of an in-person Spotlight series has everyone here at the Art Gallery of Northumberland excited,” said Olinda Casimiro, Executive Director of the Art Gallery of Northumberland. “We encourage our community to get out and engage in meaningful conversations about shared human experiences expressed through art and the process of creating art.”

The Spotlight Series 4 event is set to return on Thursday, June 9 at 7 p.m. The event was again designed to “shining the spotlight” on local Northumberland artists, organizers explained.

Featured artists in this series include Ted Staunton, Port Hope musician and award-winning author of over 40 books, and David Shewchuk, current concertmaster of the Quinte Symphony Orchestra and touring violinist, fiddler and composer.

The Spotlight Series 4 will welcome the two artists with an intermission and a live interactive Q&A at the end.

All funds raised at the event will go to specialized arts education programs targeting children, adults and seniors, organizers noted.

Tickets are available through Eventbrite for $25 including HST. Light catering and refreshments will be included.

All health and safety precautions will be implemented and those who feel unwell are encouraged to stay home, organizers noted.

As Northumberland County’s largest public art gallery, AGN aims to play a prominent role on the local, regional and national scenes “through exceptional exhibitions, programs and collaborations”.

It strives to be an “inspirational institution that serves as an educational resource, a center of artistic and cultural energies for local citizens, and a tourist attraction for all audiences.”
