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.

Lake Scugog Studio Tour, Site #2

I've been busy painting and quilting this winter in preparation for the Lake Scugog Studio Tour. I've done more paintings in my series of urban landscapes of St. John's and have started to work on a series from photos I took in Sweden. I've also done more of the In The Birches series. My quilting is all over the place, from modern to abstract art to traditional. I hope to see you on the tour. You can start at my studio, 34 Woodbridge Circle, Port Perry, Ontario, and I'll give you a map to take you to 12 other studios with a total of 32 artists. When you Google or set your GPS use the town name "Scugog" to find me easily.

Juried into two National Juried Shows – Paducah, Kentucky and Canada

There's one really big quilt show in Canada put on by the Canadian Quilt Association and called "Quilt Canada". This is a juried show of about 85 or so quilts. This year the show is in St. Catharines, Ontario in June 2014. I had my quilt Floating in this show 2 years ago. This year I entered two quilts, Friends and Retired Not Retiring. Friends is a large wallhanging designed by Michele Hill of Australia. It is raw-edge machine applique (if anyone knows how to get WordPress to add an accent, please send me directions!) The other quilt, Retired Not Retiring, I designed for my brother and sister-in-law to give as a gift in honour of their retirements and a big move to a custom-designed modern home in Goderich, Ontario. I'm SOOO excited! And to top it all off, they both got into the juried show called "Quilt Week" that takes place in Paducah, Kentucky. Richard and I went to this show last year and they had about 400 quilts in the show. I'll be travelling to both shows this spring - who can resist seeing your quilt hanging at such wonderful shows!
I designed this quilt for my brother John and his wife Barb, when they announced their retirements and the big move from Toronto to Goderich. It's made of hand-dyed fabric and is my original design. It's a bed quilt and is perfectly square - but it's hard to get it to hang straight on a skinny metal pole! Click through to see more detail photos. Or check my Blog as I may post more photos there.

This William Morris inspired quilt was designed by Michele Hill. It is raw edge applique finished with a machine blanket stitch. I LOVED making this one. It took two years. People ask me how long it took and I really should track the hours as I make this type of quilt. Next time.
