Bloomin' Artists 2017

 

On the weekend of July 15th and 16th, the town of Hampton, its gardens and its river environment, became the inspiration for visiting artists and craftspeople, as they drew, painted, and created a series of small works inspired by the beauty of their surroundings.  They were taking part in the  “Bloomin’ Artists” fundraising event sponsored by The Hampton John Peters Humphrey Foundation.
Silent auctions for the small works created were held throughout the weekend at the Lighthouse River Centre in Hampton, and the public was invited to visit artists on both days as they worked in the Hampton gardens.



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.
