The Third Annual Art Show splashes down on Sunday

August 16, 2012 by  

This coming Sunday, August 19, the Third Annual Art Show on the Great Lawn will be taking place at the Sagtikos Manor in Bay Shore, New York.

The Sagtikos Manor, coined as the ‘White House’ of the South Shore, was erected in 1697. It was used as a headquarters by the British army during the Revolutionary War and George Washington stayed there in 1790. It has been run by the Sagtikos Manor Historical Society since 1963, when the previous owner left.

Such a setting serves ideally as a backdrop for an art show. All attendees will be treated to a display of work from local Long Island artists on the manor’s great lawn. The art will include work from a variety of media, including watercolors, acrylics, oils, sculptures, ceramics, and photographs.

The event is free and runs from 11:00 am until 4:00 pm. There can be little doubt that printing businesses will be hard at work creating flyers to promote this event. Organizers and vendors alike will want to draw in crowds from nearby areas like Islip or even from some places farther afield, like Hempstead or Island Park, which are both less than an hour’s drive away.

Additionally, printing businesses may be called on to create banners for the vendors so that they can stand out to attendees. Vendors may also want to have some informational brochures or their own flyers and business cards available to try and generate some returning clients from the show.
