Description

HV Arts Council Art Show, Barbeque, & Cornhole Tournament In a celebration of community and art, the Hopewell Valley Arts Council will host a fun end-of-summer event, the "Slice of Art" BBQ & Cornhole Tournament, on September 9. This memorable art show and competitive community cornhole tournament will be held at the Hopewell Valley Vineyards from 11am to 5pm. Tickets are on sale now. General admission ($10) includes access to the event grounds with a wine sampling in the Vineyard's new tasting rooms, an afternoon of live music performed by the Back Porch Jug Band, a viewing area to watch our competitors vying to be crowned champions of the cornhole tournament, and entry to the "Slice of Art" show and sale featuring ash tree slices creatively decorated by local artists. Barbecue and drink will be available for purchase. Cornhole players will face off at noon in an official double elimination tournament with the final rounds and crowning of the tournament champions to take place at 4pm. Two-person team registration ($60 per team) for the cornhole tournament includes general admission plus food and drinks. Prizes will be awarded to the final four. Secure your slot before space runs out! Slice of Art is the first art program in the HV Arts Council’s initiative, Out of the Ashes: Art Emerging from Fallen Trees, to commemorate the devastating loss of the ash tree, one of the primary native trees in Hopewell Valley, from the effects of the emerald ash borer beetle. Wood slices, playfully called “Slices of Art” have been artistically reimagined by local artists and artisans to create unique, natural expressions of art on an ash wood palette. “Slices of Art” will be on display and for sale by silent auction starting at $100. Proceeds from the art sale are split between artists and HV Arts Council for programs, events, and scholarship. The silent auction will close at 4pm. Credit cards or cash are accepted. Rain or shine. For more tickets and event registration, please see the HV Arts Council website: hvartscouncil.org.
