    Plan to arrive at 1:00 on October 6 to meet the other artists and to get a tour of the historic railroad hotel and gardens. Then set up your easel and capture your inspiration using the medium of your choice! We welcome photographers to photograph the event, but please, no official photography entries. Be sure to bring all the supplies you need, including easel, stool/chair, brushes, paint, canvas (minimum size 8 x 10, maximum 18 x 24), etc. We will supply water and light snacks, but feel free to bring your own food and beverage. You'll have till 5:00 to complete your work, and must leave your finished piece at the Page-Walker at that time.

    A reception will be held Sunday, October 13 from 4 to 5 p.m. celebrating the works of all of the participating artists. At the reception, a $100 cash prize will be awarded to the best-in-show entry, determined by a panel of judges. Five $50 judges' choice cash awards will also be awarded.  The best-in-show entry will stay on display at the Page-Walker through the end of the year. All other artists can take their work home after the reception. Please invite your friends and family to the reception, which will be from 4:00 to 5:00 in the main gallery of the Page-Walker Arts & History Center.

    Trolley tours are back for fall! Climb aboard and let our guides share with you the history of our town as you ride through historic neighborhoods and past historic sites and landmarks. You'll see homes that housed former influential members of the community, including civic leaders, merchants, and doctors; teachers and principals of the first public high school in the state, right here in Cary; and the woman who made Cary the “gourd capital of the world!”

    You'll also see historic churches and theaters and old general stores, and visit cemeteries with graves dating back to the 1800s. Did you know Cary has an extensive African American community with a long history? You'll learn about that too. And you'll discover one of our most distinguished residents who served as the U.S. Ambassador to Great Britain under President Woodrow Wilson during WWI. At the end of the trolley ride, step inside the Page-Walker Arts & History Center and let our volunteers show you around the building, once an historic railroad hotel. Or take a self-guided tour with our new brochure.
