June Newsletter

Whew! the summer has started with a bang.

I'm glad to say that the garden projects I had planned are almost done, just in time for the art season to take off!

Catherine and I have a duo show hanging in the Cherry Hill Library, in the Sam Katz room. This is our third show there and it always amazes me how good our stuff looks together, even though it's completely disparate. The library is completely booked for every evening, and the only Saturday it's free is the day her son gets married.... so we won't be having an opening this time.

The Port Stanley Guild show is just about here. The opening is Friday June 11, 7-9pm, the show continues June 12, 12-8pm, and June 13, 12-5pm. This is always a spectacular show, you really should make it a priority on your to-do list. What could be better, Port's famous beach, the restaurants and shops, and a stellar art show too.

Port Stanley's first Friday, Art Walk is back, the first Friday of each month, and Port's Canfest weekend July 1-4 will be here before you know it.http://www.portstanleycanfest.ca/

The Woodstock Gallery Show "Visual Elements" is also coming up, with all of my art committed for the month I won't be in it this year, but I know several artist who will be, and their work is wonderful. Check it out at gallery@city.woodstock.on.ca
