It was over 10 years ago that the idea for an art festival on South Hill first popped into painter Deb Sheldon’s head, but it wasn’t until five years ago that she was able to make it happen. Now, Art on the Blacktop is a popular event for both local artists and the community. This year, it features 22 local artists showcasing their craftsmanship, all of them personally selected by Sheldon, ranging from young artists to more seasoned veterans. The event is hosted by Sheldon, her husband Jason and daughter Emma on the pavement outside of 29th Avenue Artworks, the gallery and frame shop owned and operated by the Sheldon family for over 30 years.
