Successful Art Show Opening in Bracebridge

Saturday, May 3, Janice Feist and I welcomed almost 100 visitors to the opening of our art show, Firmly Rooted. The show received wonderful feedback from those in attendance and we each got our first sales.




Friend and fellow artist, Pat J. Whittle, guided us with the placement of our work and Tracy Hoehner-McEwen directed the staging of the gallery. Our goal to create a park-like setting worked; visitors entering the gallery told us they felt like spring had finally arrived.

The mellow, guitar stylings of Jamie Sherman, Muskoka musician and artist, and CDs of forest sounds added to the atmosphere of the opening.

Firmly Rooted continues at the Chapel Gallery, 15 King Street, Bracebridge until May 31. Gallery hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 10 am – 1 pm; 2 pm – 5 pm.
