The sun was blistering hot this past weekend in Bracebridge while participating in the 49th Annual Muskoka Art and Crafts Summer Show. Luckily I had a shady spot like usual and many friends stopped by to seek refuge from the sun and entertain me. Thanks to everyone who came out and all the great artists I got to catch up with. See you next summer!
The talented kids from summer 2011 clay classes at Chetolah Pottery Studio. Amazing talent! Can't wait for this friday with a whole new bunch of young creators.
A few weekends ago I built this lake out of old plywood to bring to 11th annual Children's Festival in Minett. This event featured hands-on arts workshops, performances by youth and professional artists, clowns, buskers, storytelling, face painting, etc. It was held under the Big Top at Minett Landing, beside Wallace Marina. I participated in this event 2 summers ago and thought it was so fun I needed to return. Kids sculpted things you might find in & around our lakes and left them for a collaberative project to be put on display later at Muskoka Place Gallery. What a great way to kick off the summer!
