Art Salad – August 7 & 8 – New Date!

2021-07-07T13:46:51-04:00May 5, 2021|

The date is changed to August as it was "iffy" as to whether the June date would be able to go ahead.  We really hope that everyone is better and safe by August.  I'm breathing a bit easier as I have more time to make more "stuff"!

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.
