Elora Sculpture Project 2017

This year I had to accept a challenge: enlarge on of my favourite pieces. Spirit Woman was to double in size. My kiln is 22 inches high, so that is what I aimed for. Now she is installed behind the new library in Fergus. Paul Morin gave me a piece of a barn beam which became the base. It was a challenging and exciting time from sculpting to installation. Thanks for the help of Norbert and Dave - she was installed on rainy May 6. and was there to be seen on Sunday for the Opening.

This year a sculpture of mine is displayed in Elora on Mill Street. The opening party was on May 15. The group walked around to see all the new work. A very cold and snowy day!

Visit to Westport

Next year I will take part in a workshop given by Adrian Aleo in Westport. We will drive to Westport on our way home tomorrow and check out the place. Gristmill Studios will host the workshop running from May 21 to 25. This will be an exiting venture, I am looking forward to work with a group of artists for that length of time.

Art tours and festivals

just finished the Hills of Erin Studio tour, The Headwater Festival will still be on next weekend. All my pieces made it to the show, I am pleased to have them displayed so well.
The past weekend I had a guest artist sharing my studio, Carole St.Amand, she does traditional rug hooking. Loved her work!
On Saturday I will volunteer at the SGI centre, this will give me a chance to take in the show once more.
