Anticipation is building for our 5th annual Halloween Art Show: Spirits in Sanford! It heralds the arrival of 14 talented artists from across the country who have prepared all year long for this celebration of original Halloween art.
This photo shows Jorge de Rojas, a founding artist from our original event in 2009. We've grown so much in five years!
We'll be moving our event to a larger venue this year, just a block from the gallery at The Sanford Civic Center. With a bit more elbow room, we'll be adding some special elements to this year's show: a comfy and spooky Collector's Lounge for you to relax in and meet new friends. We'll also have Chef Sennett in the kitchen, serving up some refreshments so you can shop til you drop.
Hope to see you at this spirited showcase for Halloween art enthusiasts! Click on the tab for the Schedule page to get more details on our October 4th Preview Party and the October 5th Showcase.

The wisdom of Ruby Williams often draws a smile as well as comfort. Her words ring true for us here in Sanford as our little town is held in the national spotlight. We look forward to a visit from Ruby on Saturday, July 27 from 11am - 3pm. If we're very lucky, she'll bring some delights from her farmstand.

For Ken "Blacktop" Gentle, a trip down memory lane involves a mental journey to his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. We were pleased to host Ken on Saturday for the opening of his show "Recollections of My Youth", complete with sweet tea, home made pimento cheese, and a Spiced Bourbon Tea that hit the spot. The show is populated with characters he grew up with, scenes from country roads, and images of the Civil Rights movement. The show runs through April 28. Pictured here are Ken on the left, Jeanine, and folk art collector Howard Marks.
