Art of the Deals Call for Participants

The Queen Anne’s County Arts Council is organizing its fourth annual Centreville neighborhood extravaganza “The Art of the Deals” on Saturday, June 27 from 9 am to 1 pm. Space is available for rent at the Courthouse Square on a first-come, first-served basis. The cost is $10 for space rental.

This fun community-wide event features music, plein air painting by area artists and information tables, and arts vendors on the grounds of the original Courthouse Square. Food and refreshments will be available. Downtown merchants will have specials and sales for a day full of bargains. Originally scheduled for the third week in June, the event has been rescheduled in consideration of the Chicken Festival which is being held the weekend of June 19 and 20.

Organizations and civic groups interested in participating should call the Arts Council before June 9 for inclusion. There is no charge for non-profit group participation. Contact the Arts Council at 410.758.2520 for details and to sign up. The Council is located at 206 South Commerce Street in Centreville, Maryland. Office hours are Tuesday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Summer office hours begin on June 2.
