Art Extravaganza at The Maker's Hand

When: November 10, 2023
Where: Highline Hall, Wellington

Don’t miss the opportunity to visit THE MAKER’S HAND and SSJI’s ART EXTRAVAGANZA booth from Nov 10-12 at the Highline Hall in Wellington. The Maker’s Hand, presented by the Prince Edward County Arts Council, is one of the finest craft shows in Eastern Ontario, showcasing the work of 40 talented artists from Ontario and Western Quebec.

At the ART EXTRAVAGANZA booth, you can admire and purchase the artwork of over 30 local PEC artists who donated their pieces to support SSJI’s conservation efforts. The artworks in various mediums and sizes were inspired by the stunning natural beauty of Prince Edward County. So far, 18 pieces have been sold, raising funds to support SSJI’s work in advocacy, education and preservation of PEC’s South Shore.

We are grateful to Prince Edward County Arts Council for partnering with us in this successful initiative.

Participating artists: Whitney Babcock, Rosemary Brown, Nell Casson, Veronica Cluett, Andrew Csafordi, Diane Cole, Ron Erwin, Katherine Farris, Bill Hurst, Bert Jenkins, Petra Lepage, Michael Lindon, Nina-Marie Lister (at Melt Gallery), SaraLou Miller, Katie Newton, Lynn Stein and Susan Wallis.

MNR Road Stroll

When: November 18, 2023 at 9:00am
Where: MNR Road and Army Reserve Road
Contact: Cheryl Anderson [email protected]

We will meet at the corner of Army Reserve Road and MNR Road at 9 a.m. MNR Road is the road between the extension of Simpson and Lighthall Roads leading to the Lake. This road is generally quite wet with lots of ruts and potholes. We will need sturdy waterproof boots. As we will be well into the fall, flowers and insects will be rare; however, we may find it easier to spot birds since the leaves will be off the trees. Please allow three hours for this outing. The walk to the Lake is over a kilometre and we may want to take time to look for wintering waterfowl at the shore. Click here to RSVP
