ARTISANS at the DISTILLERY-TORONTO-SATURDAY AND SUNDAY!

May 22, 2009 | Filed under: Uncategorized

I will be in Toronto tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday in the Distillery District. This is an exciting and vibrant area full of restaurants, boutiques, art galleries in heritage buildings converted to house them. The streets are still the old brick-just a beautiful place. The Artisans in the Distillery show of which I am a part is larger this year with 52 artists. Click on the link at the side for details.
The weather looks fabulous, so do come out. It is also the Open Doors event in Toronto this week end. Always enjoyable.
Last week end we were in Tobermory for a very cold, windy, sunny and fun time. The Circle Arts Gallery in Tobermory had its opening reception which was attended by quite a few people. This is the 40th year for this gallery which started with 6 artists and now represents many, many more. I have pieces there which were just beautifully displayed as is all the artwork. It is well worth a visit. Click on the link at the side for details.
I am now in panic mode which always happens at this time, as I think that I don’t have enough pieces. I should have learned by now that my max is to have about 100 pieces finished. This is a bit of a pernickity (have I spelled this correctly?) task since so much depends on timing, mood, and of course inspiration.
I spoke with a woman yesterday who was at my first sale a few years ago. She commented on how my designs had evolved. This is so true-not only the designs but the materials of choice. This is one of the things that makes designing jewellery so exciting-there are constant changes. I look forward to that all the time and sometimes amaze myself.
I hope that I see you tomorrow or Sunday in the great city of Toronto!
