Art and all it involves has been keeping me busy and as usual “I wonder where the time goes”. Last year I agreed to be one of the directors for our art club which is called the Okanagan Artists of Canada. I was part of the Maple Ridge Garden Club when I lived on the coast and always enjoyed being part of the clubs decision making so am enjoying my role in this one. Holly Smith and I have been working on an Artist Studio Tour here in Vernon and this week the posters and brochures go out to the public. The Artist Studio Tour will be held on June 17, 2017 from 10am to 4:30pm. Our write up for the tour is as follows:
The Okanagan Artists of Canada welcomes you to an Artist Studio Tour in the Vernon area. We invite friends, art enthusiasts and the curious to meet a variety of local artists in their home studios, as well as at the BX Cidery, the Vernon Community Art Centre and Mackie Lake House. The Artist Studio Tour is free and brochures that include locations and a map will be available by May 20th at Nadines Fine Art and Frames, Leap Art Supplies and Gallery, the Vernon Community Art Centre, the BX Cidery and the Vernon Public Art Gallery in Vernon. They will also be available at the Village Gallery in Lumby.

In addition I am getting myself organized and ready for Creative Chaos being held at the Vernon Recreation Complex on June 2,3,and 4th. This is the first time I am participating in it and am looking forward to meeting fellow artisans there and also hoping many of you will stop by and say hello.
