Art on the Lawn is Cancelled for 2020


Due to the Corona Virus, Village Artisans has decided to cancel Art on the Lawn, which was scheduled for August 8, 2020. This was not an easy decision and certainly not one that we wanted to make but ultimately we value the safety of our members, our Art on the Lawn artists, and our patrons. We hope to be back next year, better than ever.

All artists who have applied will get your booth and jury fees refunded.

THROUGH JULY 26 - Community Show - Dare 2B a Little Square - Take 2

Video "Dare 2B a Little Square - Take 2"

When we were planning our lobby shows, we named this exhibit "Dare 2B a Little Square - Take 2" because it was the second time we've done a 6" x 6" community show. But now it really is a "Take 2." We hung this show the last week of February and in mid-March we closed the shop because of the Corona Virus. The show is still up and as we slowly reopen, we are keeping the show up through July 26.

The shop will be open Th-Sun from 12-5 pm and you can see the show in person during these hours, or you can visit our Virtual Reception where we have photos of all of the artwork and you can view a video of the show.

If you would like to purchase one of these pieces please call 937.767.1209 or email VillageArtisans.email@yahoo.com and someone will get back to you to make the arrangements.
