Side Street Gallery
Tuesday my friend Bonnie and I headed down to the charming little village of Wellington in Prince Edward County to see Paulette at Side Street Gallery. Paulete was happy to have 4 of my 'Wine Tour' paintings for her gallery. I'm happy as these paintings were inspired from a trip around 'the county' and so I feel it's fitting that they be shown in a county gallery. Side Street Gallery is a good one, easy to find and full of a varied collection of local artwork. It was a beautiful day for a drive; Prince Edward County astounds me, every time I go there I say "I would love to live in the county". Well that's not about to happen as long as Dave is working it is too far to commute for him, but who knows...maybe when he retires? Anyway, that's eon's away. After visiting Side Street Gallery, Bonnie and I wandered over to the new construction site nearby. A new Drake hotel is being built at the site of the former Devonshire Inn. It's a wonderful spot, overlooking the lake with gorgeous views. My friend Kasey is now working at 'The Drake' and so we asked if she was on premises..."yes!"...she came out for a few minutes to have a wee chat and say hello. It all looks very exciting; she promised that after they open Sept 15, the next time we're down she would take us on a tour around to show us the new digs!

Wednesday morning I went to Perth, where I had an appointment to meet Johanne from Gallery on Gore. This is a brand new gallery, new owners who own the building. It's a great location, close to the bridge over the river and on the opposite corner from a bakery, where afterwards I indulged in coffee and yummy quiche! They have been open for the summer and have had a good start; they're optimistic and enthusiastic. That energy rubs off; although a smaller space, it's warm and welcoming. A sign over the door, gallery lighting and a website is next. I'm happy to be showing in Perth again, it's a great little heritage town. Gallery on Gore will show 6 of my works; she loved the new bike path series, so that was confirming.
