Info For the Art Lovers


The Garrett County Arts Council is excited to present their newest event SEYMOUR, which will debut Friday Oct 11 and Saturday Oct 12 from 10:00 a.m to 6:00 p.m . daily and is part of the 2019 Autumn Glory Festival.

SEYMOUR is a fine arts and traditional craft show and sale showcasing nearly 40 artists and their creations. Work exhibited will range from painting, photography and pottery to glass, wood carving, and basket weaving.

This new art experience will take place at Simon Pearce, which is a fitting host for the event, as the company produces hand-blown crystal glassware that is both functional and artistic. Visitors will be invited to experience all Seymour has to offer, as well as take time to watch Simon Pearce’s master glassblowers at work. The company’s retail shop will be open as well.

SEYMOUR showcases fine art and traditional craft, as well as traditional Western Maryland foods such as Mennonite baked goods, honey, maple syrup, apple butter, kettle corn. There will be refreshments on site from Trader’s Coffee House, Morguen Toole and Painters Famous Flavored Kettle Korn. Children’s activities, artist demos, live music and dance performances will round out both days.
