Hi everyone. COVID hit us pretty bad these past two years. In an effort to keep everyone safe, we cancelled our 2020 and 2021 events. As the holiday season comes up, we’re starting to see the rise of the new Omicron variant, so it might be back indoors for the rest of the winter.
We wanted to wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season, and we’re crossing our fingers that we’ll be able to open our doors to everyone next year.
Happy holidays and a happy and safe new year to everyone.
Just wanted to keep you updated on the status of this year’s event. Like many other shows, conventions, tours, and just about everything else which puts people together, we’ve taken the sad, but inevitable steps to cancel this year’s event. Honestly, we wish it hadn’t come to this, but the way everything is going, it’s unlikely we would be able to get our artists together, launch the advertising and brochures, and get any meaningful participation this year, at least not without potentially endangering others.
But check back once in a while. We’ll be looking into other ways to engage with the neighbourhood, whether it’s on our social media accounts, or by having a virtual show and auction. We’d still like to be part of this community.
And, hey, we’ll be back again next year. See you then.
Al has spent his life as a farmer and nurseryman keenly observing nature and the change of the seasons. In his retirement he has been pulled to recall those observations by producing perfectly precise polymer clay flowers. Al’s arrangements beautifully reflect the variety of colours found in the garden and are placed in hand crafted stoneware vases. You will marvel at the detail and attention that Al puts into his work.
Jonathan Sau is a fine art photographer. Capturing the beauty of nature through landscape and floral photography is a big part of Jonathan’s work. He also explores other genres like abstracts, still life, and travel. Through the judicious use of perspective, isolation and colour, Jonathan creates powerful images, either depicting reality in its simplest and most pleasing way, or as abstracts of light and form.
Jonathan is a member of the Canadian Association of Photographic Art (CAPA), and the Grand River Imaging and Photographic Society in Waterloo, Ontario. He was a former member of the North Shore Photographic Society in West Vancouver, British Columbia.
Jonathan’s work has won awards at CAPA competitions, and has been accepted for exhibition at international salon, and local photographic art events and juried art shows.
