I participated at the Cedar Ridge Creative Centre Celebration of the Arts on Sunday afternoon. It was a little hard for me as Sunday, 9/Jun/19 is Pentecost Sunday. This is a huge celebration for Christians, the day that Christ Gave His disciples in the presence of Mary, the Holy Spirit, the "Helper" that He Promised, who would tell them all that they need to know and who would support them in every way as they spread the Good News to the four corners of the world. I went early at 930 am to set up and was grateful that my artist friend, Mirela Victor, was willing to watch my table for me when I left at 1030 to go for Sunday Mass and attend the reception afterwards.  

 

I returned in the afternoon and had a great time enjoying the beautiful gardens at Cedar Ridge, the coffee from China cups, treats, and the camaraderie of local artists and people who appreciate and support the arts.  It was a very enjoyable, relaxed, Sunday afternoon.

 

 




I participated in the Stouffville Art in the Park for the first time on Saturday 8/Jun/19. The event took place in Memorial Park from 11 am to 6 pm.  The weather could not have been better, though it did get a bit windy. For that reason, I did not cover the sides of my tent. Allowing the air to go through helped stabilize the tent, I think.  

 

It was my first time spending time in Stouffville and I really enjoyed it. I would not mind coming back in the near future, as it is not so far from where I live.  I did meet a lot of very nice artists and people who appreciate and support the arts.  I would consider doing this again.

 

 





Hello Everyone,


This Saturday is the Pickering Artfest on the Esplanade where many local artists will be happily showing and selling their art work.  There will be lots of activities for kids, barbecue, entertainment...

 

Here is a photo of my booth last year. I neglected to bring my "S" rings...and had to be a bit creative in displaying my work.  Hopefully, this year, I won't make that mistake. :))

 

My booth is #49
