I would have to say that the most precious connections I have made here in Barrie, Ontario are with Awkward Stage and Le Petit Chapeau. Both Alana Sproule and Meaghan Armstrong have been both supportive and inspirational as I begin my journey as an artist. Beyond being my studio neighbours, we are working hard as the Lakeshore collaborative to bring programming to the mews during culture days and deliver workshops throughout the year. I definately could not have done what I have without these two special ladies.
Barrie Art Club
The Barrie Art Club was founded in 1949 in the city of Barrie Ontario Canada. Over the past half century it has grown into a vibrant community resource for artists, professional or amateur, and artists-at-heart (those wanting to learn or just wanting to appreciate). As a member of the Barrie Arts Club I gave an artist talk on the importance of materiality and will be offering a workshop on writing artist statements and marketing one's work at the Annual General Meeting in May.
