Sunflowers and Shorelines

Sunflowers and Shorelines is an exhibition of pottery and paintings by artists and sisters Karen Gray and Jane Gray.
Karen's functional carved pottery graphically interprets cottage country images including canoes and sunflowers.  Jane's oil paintings are based on her experiences of the moonlit skies and shorelines of Algonquin Park.

You are invited to the exhibition of pottery and paintings by two sisters who interpret similar subjects in their chosen mediums.

FALL COLOURS Writing Retreat

Everyone is welcome – from those interested in developing their writing skills, aspiring writers or accomplished authors, to those who simply enjoy writing as a hobby. There is no requirement for you to have been previously published or even to have an intention to publish.  P.S. If you have an on-going writing project, bring it with you! If you’re not currently working on anything, don’t worry, we’ll get you writing.
