I’m thrilled to be taking part in this outdoor Christmas market this year. It takes place at Sandy Cogar’s studio and will have all sorts of different art work. Sandy’s metal sculptures, pottery from a few people, hockey stick art. Lots of fun stuff. Get original Christmas art direct from the artists.
It’s been a crazy time for everyone. I’ve had my head down in my day job and working on ceramics during the evening. I’ve got lots of different themes for this year and I can’t wait to show them off at the Victoria County Studio Tour the 26th-27th September and again on October 3-4.
I was going to try a few new shows and not put my art in a few other venues. Sadly, the two shows in Little Britain and Picton have been cancelled. I’m hoping that the Victoria County Studio Tour at the end of September, and the Marshland Centre in Lakefield in November will go ahead.
When we are able to see art again and life is a little back to normal, if you can afford it, support an artist by buying their work. Even a little piece will make them happy and help their income.
See you soon!
I will be showing my work in Lakefield on the weekend of November 16 & 17th from 10 – 4pm.. This is a lovely show in a scenic location in Lakefield. It is boutique style, meaning that all of the artisan’s work is spread around the venue, artfully displayed. This year is the 14th annual Christmas show, featuring the work of local and regional artisans.
It takes place at:
64 Hague Blvd, Lakefield.
I’ll be participating in the Artisanity show and Sale on November 1 – 3 in Peterborough. This show includes many artisan crafts such as paintings, wood turning, pottery, gourd art, scarves, ornaments, stuffed animals, jewellery, quilts, felted items and much, much more. Free Admission, it is a fundraising show for the Artisan Centre, Peterborough.
Takes place at:
Knight of Columbus Hall,
317 Hunter Street,
Hunter St. & Rubidge St.
I had a friend, the talented Kathryn Frank, take some photos of my platters for me, and I’m thrilled with the results. Here is one to start with. Running bunny.
This year’s Victoria County Studio Tour is approaching fast. Once again I will be participating as a guest artist at Janet Tysiak’s studio with Janice Addison. We had a lovely time last year and I met so many different people. The studio Tour is all over the Kawartha Lakes, and Janet’s studio is in Fenelon Falls.
We will be at:
35 Lagoon Drive
Fenelon Falls, Ontario
CR 121; Francis St. E (CR 22) for 2 km; Right on Lagoon
I’ve got some new works this year, and four new greeting card designs.
I just came back after a week away in Doylestown, PA from a course with Lisa Naples. She is a ceramic artist that I have long admired and I had a wonderful time. We were there a week and the seven other participants (along with me) all making our choice of sitting animal sculptures. We didn’t know what the others were making until we got to the class. There was a kangaroo, a sea otter, a ram, a chipmunk, a bird and three foxes! I was one of the foxes.
I learned so much from this course and look forward to making many more animals in the coming months. I highly recommend not only this course, but just taking a course once in a while. It doesn’t even have to be in the discipline that you work in. A couple of years ago I took a linocut course and it was a revelation!
I’m pleased to be taking part in the 2019 Victoria County Studio Tour again this year. It takes place the two weekends of September 28-29, and October 5-6. I am a guest artist at Janet Tysiak’s studio at 35 Lagoon Drive, Fenelon Falls.
I had a wonderful time last year meeting lots of people and I hope to welcome you again this year. Janet sells stained glass and jewellery and Janice Addison is a painter, so there is lots of variety at the location to choose from.
Hopefully we will see you there!
