On the weekend of July 15th and 16th, the town of Hampton, its gardens and its river environment, will become the inspiration for visiting artists an, as they draw, paint, and create a series of small works inspired by the beauty of their surroundings. They are taking part in the “Bloomin’ Artists” fundraising event sponsored by The Hampton John Peters Humphrey Foundation and Communities in Bloom.
A silent auction for the small works created will be held throughout the weekend at the Lighthouse River Centre in Hampton.
There will be creative activities for children and the public is invited to visit artists as they work.
Proceeds from Bloomin’ Artists go towards the continuing works of the Hampton John Peters Humphrey Foundation, a charitable organization committed to providing an ongoing tribute to John Peters Humphrey by educating individuals of all ages about his life and accomplishments; and to educating people about human rights.
