Each time you see a new play at the theatre this spring and summer, you will also see a different display of art on the walls. Drawing upon a wealth of artists in a 60 km radius, your eyes will be delighted by the variety of styles, mediums, and subject matter expressed by our artists.
Who Is Involved:
Local art group, APSA (Association of Port Stanley Artists), gathers the artists, curates and hangs the ever-changing display throughout the year. https://portstanleyartists.com/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/303903062995281/
All work is for sale. The box office is ready to help you with your purchase; they will take it off the wall and ring it up for you! When you support artists you are also supporting the theatre – a percentage of each art sale gives back to the PSFT. Lastly, you are supporting yourself by taking home a lasting image to enjoy always.
When To See The Art:
Before the play, during intermission, and after the play. Enjoy a beverage in the Palmer Room and take in the stunning harbour view on the patio, as well as the fine art display.
When you are not attending the theatre, the art can be viewed any time during box office hours by checking in with our box office personnel.
