Grimsby Festival of Art – Saturday Sept.8th

September 10, 2007 | Filed under: Uncategorized

Thank you every one who visited me at the Grimsby Festival of Art. I was located on Nelles Blvd. which was an absolutely beautiful place to be. The weather was exceptionally fine, the people were friendly and my sales were excellent. What more could I have asked for?

Nelles Blvd. has been the location of this art festival for a number of years. It has beautiful homes with fine landscaping and many mature trees. I would think that many of the homes date to the first half of the 20th century. The residents were most obliging allowing tents to be set up in front of their properties and driveways. The success of this festival is due in great measure to their interest and co-operation as well as the great number of volunteers who worked for many weeks prior and on the day of the event.

Many people mentioned that they thought there was a great improvement in the overall quality of the goods offered for sale. This is a juried show now so that would account for this improvement. There were many jewellers there with no two alike. This allowed for good choices for people–as the saying goes “there was something for everyone”. I like to create large bold pieces with unusual combinations of stones and I am happy to say that this was appreciated by many. Thank you to those that purchased my designs. It is most gratifying to know that my work is appreciated and considered exciting and beautiful. I am always inspired by these responses.

My friend Elaine worked with me on Saturday. We arrived at 6 a.m. for set up. Without her I would not have had such a successful day. Her help was invaluable and for that I am truly grateful.

My next event is at Hillfield-Strathallan College on Fennell Ave. in Hamilton for Homecoming.

This is then followed by the BEYOND THE VALLEY STUDIO TOUR in Dundas the weekend after Thanksgiving. I invite you to attend this worthwhile event featuring Artisans in Dundas.

I look forward to seeing you again!
