Art Demonstrations all weekend! Come see how it's made!

With Guest Artists:

Lou Hanson, pottery         
Lou has whimsical garden totems, and gorgeous floral blessing bowls.

Chandra Rice, Jewellery, Weaving, Glass, Wood, Metal
Chandra uses many materials - fibre, glass, wood, metal - to explore the joys of making. A good day is when the materials come alive in her hands, and her mind relaxes into the process. She will be bringing a selection of hand-bound journals, jewellery, weavings, and glass bowls.  www.chandrarice.ca

Inga Bertelmann, Watercolour Print Making
Creating organic and abstract art through watercolour print making, fabrics, acrylics, pottery and wood is Inga’s passion.

Michael Sheppard, wood carving
Michael has been working with wood for most of his life but has been carving for over 30 years. He has won the Best in Category award in many international wood carving competitions, specializing in birds of prey and song birds.

ALSO NOTE: The same weekend, the Artists in the Country have their spring show, just 4 KM west of us and 4KM east of us, the Escarpment Artists have their spring show. SO within 8 km you can see 30 artists in 3 studios!!

My Studio in Carlisle will be Studio Location #14 on the Milton Studio Tour this year! I will be joined by guest artist, Lou Hanson who will bring her inspirational message bowls and garden totems to the event.

OAS Teachers' Exhibition 2016

The Oakville Art Society's annual Teachers' Show is on the latter part of September. If you find yourself in Oakville during that time, check it out! If you're looking to take a class, this is a great opportunity to see what art your instructors make and you can decide if you want to learn how to create something similar!

2nd Annual All Guilds Show at the AGB

This year I am lucky enough to be accepted into the show through 2 guilds - the Potters and the new Fibre Arts Guild. Those following me on Facebook have seen small pics of my pieces. The show runs for a month in the main Lee Chin Family Gallery and starts the same weekend as the Kaleidoscope Sale. I will also have pottery and fibre stuff for sale during that sale.

The opening reception for the All Guilds Show is on the day before the show officially opens. Friday April 22nd from 5-7pm. There will be an awards ceremony that night.

The Kaleidoscope sale will be open during those hours too. I will be at the opening reception. Hope to see you there too!

Christmas Sale/Soup Bowl at the Art Gallery of Burlington

As a member of the Burlington Potters' Guild, I will once again have a couple of tables of pottery for sale in the Lee Chin Gallery at the AGB for the annual Christmas Sale/Soup Bowl event.

All Guilds at the AGB will have their art for sale at the event, so it's an excellent opportunity to get some Christmas shopping done! There will be pottery (of course!), fibre art, rug hooking, weaving, painting, photography, sculpture and wood carving. Lots to see!

When there, why not take part in the Soup Bowl event? $45 gets you your choice of hand made soup bowl, a choice of artisanal soups, salads, rolls, coffee and dessert. You get to keep the bowl! I am hoping to donate at least 40 bowls to the event this year. The proceeds from Soup Bowl go directly to funding the AGB facility. To get tickets for Soup Bowl, please go to the www.artgalleryofburlington.com website or call 905.632.7796.

The Christmas Sale is free to the public and the parking will be free for the weekend.

Hours (tentatively):

Thursday 11am - 3pm; Friday 10am - 9pm; Saturday 10am - 5pm; Sunday noon - 4pm
