Well, the hard reality is that we had our second 'Summer' Artists Round Table meeting which means that we are on the wrong side Mid Summer!!! I still feel I haven't begun, still haven't made it out to Sandbanks for an afternoon of fun in the sun (note to self...remedy that).
We had a small but interesting group... Reg Aitken with his photography, Heather showed her decorative garbage can covers last month but showed up in a lovely Summer outfit, Annette Bruneau of Rej's Ceramics brought some of her new work, fused glass and bisque work. We had Marsha Gormley show us some of her painting and Colleen Johnson brought a beautiful fused glass bowl.

Little bottles are covered in Polymer Clay in a myriad of designs. If you are interested in participating in an afternoon of claying some of these bottles do contact Georgia at Artemisia.
Dockside Art Festival
I participated in the 1st Annual Dockside Art Festival on Sunday down at the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes on Kingston Waterfront. As with most things that start small with hardly any budget this looks like it has great potential ..... it just needs a bigger marketing budget and the many months long advertising lots of other events get. We did have a few people looking at the artisans work and taking in the dancing and music on the deck of the Alexander Henry Coast Guard boat.
