Mayor Bob Kilger is pleased to announce the third annual “The Mayor's Spring Celebration of the Arts”, a special event that will take place at Aultsville Theatre on Saturday, April 9, at 7:00 pm.

Mayor Bob Kilger invites everyone to join him in this celebration of local artists. 

“I am proud to be associated with this event,” states Mayor Kilger. “This year in particular, it will showcase performers as well as visual artists, potters, sculptors, and local arts organizations.”

The Celebration has two major purposes: to showcase local artists in our community, and to raise money for Aultsville Theatre. Tickets are $20 per person, on sale now at Scotiabank and Seaway Valley Tourism.

The event is organized by Aultsville Theatre, and will consist of performances in Aultsville Theatre, as well as an arts reception and silent auction in the lobby area and Student Lounge at St. Lawrence College.  A wide assortment of art exhibits, demonstrations, and unique items will be available to enjoy throughout the evening. 

“It is sure to be a fantastic evening,” said Pam Maloney, Chair of the Aultsville Theatre Management Committee. “This event will be an arts extravaganza that will give people inspiration, and showcase the activities and opportunities for involvement right here in our community.  It is certain to be a special evening with something for everyone.” 

Hosted by well-known musician Graham Greer, and featuring the Brigadoons, the concert will also include performances by the Riverdale String Ensemble, comedy sketches, Broadway and dance numbers, and a surprise performance by a number of community leaders.  The Arts Reception will feature displays and demonstrations by members of the Cornwall Regional Art Gallery, Focus Art, the Potters Guild, the Quilt of Belonging, Dreambuilder Studios, and other independent artists and arts organizations.  The silent auction will feature art items and experiences unique to this area.  Come and see what our community has to offer!
 
A complete schedule of the evening events will be available on the Aultsville Theatre and City of Cornwall websites.
