We were delighted to be participants in
the annual Hadassah Art Show, May 23 in Toronto.
120 women visited our gallery (4 bus loads) to see our presentation
"Blending Genres", a display of contemporary and
antique art work. Artists featured, Anthony Batten, Linda Kemp and
Lynn Bertrand. A portion of our sales was donated to the
NOAR Chapter of Hadassah.
The next evening we held a talk sponsored by the Interior Designers of Canada
entitled "Is It Worth The Paper It's Printed On?". This first in a series of art professional
talks was given by antique print dealers Elisabeth and Nicholas Legge. They discussed
the history and evolution of antique and rare prints with emphasis on the nature of
papers, process and techniques of authenticating genuine antiqe prints. Our
evaluation at the end of the talk was 'EXCELLENT'!
Georgia Tannis, designer Victoria Shaw and Marilyn Harding. These were just
few of our designers that stayed afterwards for bubbly and nibbles.
Fianally, Blending Genres Open House, Saturday May 26, we enjoyed an informal
afternoon with artists Anthony Batten, Linda Kemp and Lynn Bertrand. We were
pleased with the turnout of over 70 people at advertised event.
Wait for our next post about our trip to NYC next weekend!
