The 10th annual Yarmouth Art Festival was a great success!
Thanks to the artists, volunteers, visitors, and buyers who made the 10th annual Yarmouth Art Festival successful.
The show was held Oct. 24-27, 2018 at St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church, 396 Gilman Road in Yarmouth.
Hundreds of art lovers visited the show both during its regular hours and during the popular artists reception Thursday evening, Oct. 25. Enjoy an album of photos from the reception.
