We are proud and happy to announce the coming of a
new season here at Artemisia Art Gallery and
Art Services in Westport, Ontario.
In May we will be featuring the LAND O LAKES ARTISANS GUILD in an exclusive show and sale of many fine items, handcrafted to perfection for you and your home. There will be works of fine art -- paintings and sculpture -- and works of fine craft -- pottery, woodturning, jewelry, fiber art and some wonderfully unique works by these talented artisans.
This show will run from May 8 to May 25, 2009 with an opening reception on May 9 from 1:00 - 4:00 pm. Come on in and meet the Land O Lakes Artisans!
On March 14, 2009 we were featured on Regional Contact, and would like to thank Kathie Donovan for choosing us and doing such a wonderful show for us. We have had many compliments on both the gallery and our work and stories, so a huge thanks to Kathie and Pete and Randy for our marvelous and fantastic "15 minutes of fame"!!!
We have just joined the Chamber of Commerce, attended the AGM, learned about and met the owners of our sister and brother businesses here in this lovely village on the Rideau Canal, now a World Heritage site.
We hope to join our fellow business owners in providing lots of great reasons to come to Westport-- great countryside, wonderful swimming and superb spots for picnics -- along with shopping at some very fine stores, including one with terrific all natural ice cream!!!
We have been busy jurying for the coming season and will have some photos here shortly of the new works available beginning in May. Lots of wonderful and colorful feel good items for you to peruse.
We are also planning to have rainy day activities this summer for youth and adults -- come on in on a rainy day and splash about with paints and create some unique work!!! but mostly
