Local Artists Exhibit in Art on the Hill Show

Art on the Hill Returns to Stirling

Local and area artists will exhibit their latest works at Art on the Hill, at The Shrine of St. Joseph, located at 1050 Long Hill Road in Stirling. This unique evening of fine art and music, as well as food and drink, will take place on Saturday, November 15. The third biennial Art on the Hill event begins at 8 PM in the Shrine Auditorium.

The group art show will feature the works of 15 accomplished area artists, some of whom are quite well known in their media. In addition, each of the artists has donated an original piece of art for an art drawing which will take place that evening. (Attendees will drop tickets in vessels placed in front of each piece; a lucky winner will be drawn for each donated work of art.)
