Shavasana Gallery & Café – Opening Dec. 2, 3, & 4

I’m intending to re-open Shavasana Gallery/Café for a few days this coming weekend – Dec. 2, 3, & 4 with my usual hours of 9 – 4 Friday & Saturday and 10:15 – 4 Sunday….there’s a possibility of staying open an extra day – Monday – if weather permits.

As I write this it is snowing in Kitsilano and the forecast seems to be changing hourly with regards to the amount and timing of the coming snowfalls. Because I divide my time between here and Mayne, my plans can change with where and when and how much snow is in the forecast – but I’ll do my best….because I’m jonesing for a little MI time😊

….although, my little menagerie of neighbourhood birds will miss their daily supply of seeds & sugar water!

Hope to see you all soon!

Cheers!

The Accidental Curator – Episode 8 – The Drunk, The Blind Man, The Ukulele Player

I’m sitting at PureBread Café in Kitsilano on November 20, 2022 – a full year since I created this Podcast – and just carrying on with my plan to transfer all of my Podcasts onto my Shavasana Gallery website and my Clay and Bone site: https://clayandbone.com/ . It’s not a terribly difficult process, very cut and paste, but, as in many things I do online, I’m only vaguely – if not at all – aware of this reaching anyone or having any grand significance. Actually, as to “grand significance” I think it’s safe to say there is none…but I still feel compelled to continue. If you haven’t already listened to this recording, give it a shot, I think it’s a fun one…😊

Re-Opening Remembrance Day Weekend

Shavasana Gallery & Café is participating in the annual November Art/Studio Tour which this year has expanded to include all things “Made on Mayne”. The show is running from Friday November 11th until Saturday the 13th 12 – 4. Gallery hours will be slightly expanded as follows: Friday 9 – 4, Saturday 9 – 4, Sunday 10:15 – 4, and Monday 9 – 4. Made on Mayne is a fabulous way to check out all the local talent that Mayne has to offer, and have a peek into various studios that may not be open otherwise.

Shavasana Gallery will be showcasing art by local artists Famous Empty Sky, Bill Maylone and Wayne Thomas as well as Art Prints & Cards by Stephen Cropper, Deborah Strong, Toby Snelgrove, Linda Dzus and a collection of ceramic masks by…yours truly.😊We also have a number of antiques and curios and a beautiful selection of regionally made jewellery by various artisans.

Please come on by to check out the art or to stop in for a coffee or tea and say hello – it would be great to see you! 🙏😊
