3 Art Festivals
Lions Art Show and Sale
Bobcaygeon Art Festival
Muskoka Arts and Crafts 48th Annual Summer Show
This month is a busy time for me with three art shows around the area. The Beaches Art Show last month was disappointing because of poor attendance due to rain. Because we have just recently returned to Toronto I have had to go on show recommendations from other artists. I had been told that this was a good show however I found that it catered more to inexpensive craft than art so it's not a one I would do again. It's all a learning experience. This weekend I am at the "Lions Art Show" in Cobourg, Ontario. Cobourg is on the lakefront between Toronto and Ottawa. I have never been into the town although I have passed the turnoff to it dozens of times when we have been going between the two cities. This art show is in a huge tent so at least we won't get rained upon.
The following weekend I am doing "Bobcaygeon Art Festival "show in the Settlers Village in Bobcaygeon. This town north of Toronto has many beautiful cottages and homes as does Muskoka in the same area. This is where I have the third show for the month, the 'Muskoka Arts and Crafts 2010 48th Annual Summer Show'. It will be interesting to experience all three. It is hard work but both my husband and I enjoy the shows and the people we meet. We are looking forward to visiting these areas again after having been away from Canada for quite a few years. Northern Ontario is beautiful place.
Just a note on the G20. We were amazed to see all the violence on TV in the area near where the G20 was being held. We live in downtown Toronto and find it a very safe and tolerant city. The breaking of windows and setting of cars on fire done by gangs of young thugs has no place in genuine protest marches and is not justifiable under any circumstances. I think most Torontonians felt sad and angry about it all.
