gallery news & new newsletter in the works

The gallery set up is getting close to completion. Our doors should be open for our 'soft opening' on Nov 17th, with our grand opening Dec 10th. This gives us some time to work any bugs out, and make sure that the set up flows. This is SOOOOO exciting/terrifying!
We will be open Wednesdays through Sundays, closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
The Art Gallery of Lambeth is at 2454 Main St in Lambeth Ontario. We are 9 area artists, and as well as our own work we will have associate artists work on display, and a gift shop of locally made treasures.
Our gallery will have a community focus and so we will offer workshops for both adult and young learners in our teaching room. We also plan on hosting community events like after school art programs, art fairs, and speaking/demonstration programs. When we're not using it we plan on renting the room for small groups to have meetings in.

My partners are:

Vivian Tserotas, textile
Robert Reid, watercolour
Sandra England, contemporary
Rose Klein, textile
Catherine Craig, clay and fiber

Annette Martin, contemporary
Brenda Colley, wild life, all media
June-Anne Reid, contemporary
and of course me, Robin Baratta, contemporary

In addition to this I'm still running my own art business, if you're thinking of a portrait for Christmas, or of hosting a pARTy, I'm booking up fast, so don't delay!

As a part of streamlining my own business I've been migrating my newsletter list to a service, so that it won't come from my personal e:mail account any more but from my web site. If you'd like to sign up just put your info into the sign up box, click on the click here spot on the confirmation e:mail...and Bob's your uncle!

The St Thomas Guild Show 'The Art Before Christmas is fast coming up too. Friday, Nov 12 opening reception 6-9pm, show continues Saturday November 13, 12-9pm, Sunday November 14, 12-4pm. It's at the restored Canadian Southern Railway Station at 810 Talbot St, St Thomas. the art will be superlative as always, but it's worth going just to see what they've done with that magnificent old building.
