NEWS

  • What Canada Means to Me
    June 28, 2017
    Ann Bernard sends us this news about her upcoming blog posts: Laura Dobrindt offered me the pieces made by our Guild to display at The Village of Arbour Trails, at 32 Bayberry Drive in Guelph, on July 3. When they arrived here and I was looking through them, I realised that we had all created something very special. I selected and put together a seven day series (each containing 8 pieces) for a blog presentation of our work on my website. It was a fascinating, impressive and emotional experience. It gave me goosebumps. Until you go through the binders in the intensive way that I have done you will not be aware of the rich truth we have created about Canada. Believe me - it is special. I selected pieces that told a story about Canada. The writings are included with each piece. All are unnamed. If your piece did not get selected I commiserate. My pieces did not get selected either. The pieces chosen were those that fitted a theme. I put this blog together because it came here to be exhibited at Arbour Trails and I had the opportunity. It has been a great experience.
