|Art despite pain
This weekend I'm participating in the juried 2003 "Gathering of Artisans" in Montréal, being hosted in the lovely lakeside community of Baie d'Urfé. Taking place today from 1000 to 1600, and on Sunday from 1000 to 1500, this is a fantastic opportunity to come out and meet local artisans and artists.
The art and artisan fair is being held in two adjacent buildings, the Baie d'Urfé Curling Club and The Red Barn recreational centre. My booth features a number of my watercolour paintings as well as information about chronic pain, as part of my Art Despite Pain (#ArtDespitePain) pain awareness initiative.
Feel free to drop by and say hi! I'm in The Red Barn, just past the big Canadian flag hanging from the ceiling. There's a lovely vibe here this weekend, with a few food trucks set up between the two buildings and already plenty of people dropping by to chat.
With more than thirty-five juried artisans and artists, and a number of food and other vendors, there are about fifty booths set up so far!
Free parking for this event is available at the Whiteside Taylor Centre/Library (20551 Lakeshore Road and then take the sidewalk towards the right) and the Curling Club parking lot (63 Churchill Road, Baie d'Urfé).
