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.

Artists Against the Mega Quarry
Today, in beautiful Dufferin County, looms a threat to 2300 acres of prime farmland, pristine water supply, and the inspiration and livelihood of hundreds of artists.
Artists Against the Mega-Quarry is a loose collective of artists who have gathered in protest - using art.
Our pieces, whether they portray the protest, the value of our water and local food or simply the cherished beauty of the region, are shown and sold in support of efforts to Stop the Mega-Quarry.
