SPRING IS HERE ON SPRING STREET. . .

AND SUMMER IS NOT FAR BEHIND...

It is hard to believe that it is nearly the end of May. Here at Artemisia we have been very busy planning a summer of visual and aural treats for our loyal customers.

First things first ---

The month of June will see another retrospective
exhibit of the works of James Henderson Boyd, 1929 - 2002,
noted Canadian artist and fun-loving pedagogue!

Original etchings and prints by Boyd will be on display and for
sale from June 8 - 30, 2010.
OPENING RECEPTION: JUNE 12, 2010
NOON TO 4 PM

Please come by and see these wonderful prints and original
works. We are now open Monday through Sunday from
10 am to 5 pm.

MEET OUR ARTISTS!
All summer long our artists will be coming in to meet with you and talk about their work.
Some will also be demonstrating how they get from idea to finished work. Be sure to come often and especially to meet your favourite artist

Be sure to join us for days of fun when our artists come to Artemisia to meet
