The event started this morning. Co-founder, Barbara Hubbard says its all inclusive. The last day is tomorrow from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

60 artists from Brunswick and New Hanover counties are selling multiple pieces. She says art ranges from abstract to realistic with several special features.

Hubbard says proceeds from their raffle will go to student scholarships for the Leland Cultural Arts Center.

Hubbard explains, “It’s a creative energy for people. We live in a highly retired aged community. A lot of our artists are of that age, and they’re finding their passion again.”

She says members are having a dedication at 2 p.m. on Friday September 27 in the Leland Library for a 12 panel mural they created for the children’s section.
