Business Sponsors

Dear Local Business Owner:
Friends of Fishing Creek School are pleased to announce the second annual juried professional art show at the beautifully restored historic schoolhouse building in Villas, NJ. on Saturday, June 10th & Sunday, June 11th. This is a great opportunity to bring artists and patrons to our beautiful bayside neighborhood in Lower Township,  Cape May County, NJ.   We are hoping that this annual event will become one the premier art shows in the Cape May area, and we are looking for local businesses to sponsor our event to draw artists and visitors to our town while supporting our local businesses in return. In addition to spotlighting beautiful local artworks,  proceeds of the show will benefit the continuing historic preservation project of the Historic Fishing Creek Schoolhouse. 

How can you help?  We would like to spotlight individual businesses to fund the prize awards for the artwork in the show.  Currently, we are looking for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes, along with Best in Show, People's Choice and Honorable Mention awards. Representatives from your business are invited to help select the award during the judging of the show alongside our professional judge, on Friday night at 4:30 and you may invite the artist to display the work in your business after the show ends on Sunday, June 11th.
