It’s October 2nd and I am sitting in the bakery/café in the Co-op on Cortes Island. There are many toddlers running around – several in full emotional meltdown – while their mothers drink coffee and visit. My partner Cathy is here on a retreat at Hollyhock Learning Centre and I’ve tagged along to have a little road trip vacation before I head back to Mayne to close Shavasana Gallery for the season.
This is the final weekend to drop in and see the lovely creations of island artists Famous Empty Sky & Angie Carson, and their show: “Images & Icons” – and to pay a visit to the café which will be closing on October 6th for the winter – reopening mid-spring.
The show has been great – lots of visitors to the exhibit and many happy owners of new pieces of art to adorn special places in their homes and hearts.
We are also having a Final Weekend closing celebration on Saturday October 5th between 3 and 5. There will be free coffee & tea & yummy cake made by Famous Empty Sky, who will also be in attendance. Artist Angie Carson will also likely be here to participate in the fun – hope to see you there!
**As mentioned in my last post, this is also your last opportunity to purchase arts and crafts made by talented local creatives: jewellery, rugs, carvings, cards, prints, drawings, quilts, dryer balls and an assortment of icons, artifacts, curios & carvings from India, Africa & the Northwest Territories (Innu)…come down and have a look!
