It’s that time of year again!
I will be participating once again in our annual studio tour this weekend. Details are available at www.welcomebacktootterville.ca, or you can rely on what I’ve posted here and pick up a postcard when you arrive at my gallery. The postcards look like this and have a map and list of locations on the back:
Most of us are open 10 to 5 on Saturday and Sunday. If you live in London or Waterloo or Hamilton, we are about an hour away. We’re a half hour south of Woodstock, or northwest of Simcoe. When you arrive, look for the signs and the yellow flags.
I have a number of pieces available, all at my 2020 prices. I think you might find something you’d like to take home. 😉
Below is a quote from an article by Linda DeJonghe, another long-time tour participant who also has a regular newspaper column:
Sue Goossens has created dramatic watercolours on paper and canvas using an intense colour palette, which is unique to the medium. Her original work features pieces from her travels including her latest trip to Newfoundland. Ralph Moore and Sons, have a large variety of birdseed, feeders and houses which make perfect gifts for everyone.
Plaid Shirt Farms Ltd. features yummy haskap, black currant and honey products. Great for stocking stuffers and gift baskets. Mae Leonard’s barn will showcase her nature based acrylic paintings and beautiful wire sculptures for that special person on your list. Lianne Todd’s studio will be filled with both hand painted watercolours on paper and original mathematical renderings on metal and acrylic using vivid colours and realistic textures.
Rooted in Florals has a wonderful selection of unique home décor and interesting gift ideas using rustic finds, dried and fresh flowers. At Shirley Hokke’s Otterview Art Studio you will be delighted to discover recent abstracts of “Leaves and Fences,” in acrylic and collage, plein air landscapes in oils and unique wet ‘n wet watercolours. Marlene Long usually works in oils but also enjoys drawing and has recently ventured into watercolours for her realistic landscapes and animals.-Two Cents’ Worth by Linda DeJonghe, Postmedia Network
