Lake Scugog Studio Tour 2015 – Site #9

Take a tour of studios in the Township of Scugog, including my site, at Utica Memory Hall in the wee hamlet of Utica. (Just this year - next year it will be in my new studio!) I'm at site #9 on the tour. www.scugogstudiotour.ca Site #9 has 5 artists and features lot of different media. I've got encaustic paintings and quilts, Pamela Meacher brings her beautiful watercolours, Colin Whitebread will display colourful acrylic and mixed media work, Kelly Fraleigh is selling emotional photographs and finally, Libbie Burns will show a gorgeous selection of fibre pieces. Libbie will be doing demonstrations of how she felts wool to make her wonderful garments and I will demonstrate techniques in encaustic painting.

Group Shows!

It's exciting to have both paintings and quilts in two group shows, both at Port Perry galleries. So get out there! The Kent Farndale Gallery is inside the Scugog Public Library and that show is on until Wednesday April 29th. Walk one blocks west and drop into the Scugog Council for the Arts Gallery. This is a group show "pre-tour" of Lake Scugog Studio Tour artists.
