Peterborough in Portrait

Peterborough in Portrait'via Blog this'
Peterborough in Portrait: Our Inclusive Community art exhibition June 15 - June 22 at the Canadian Canoe Museum (910 Monaghan Road).  

The exhibition, sponsored by Community Living, will feature portraits of people living in the City or County of Peterborough submitted by artists - professional, emerging and student - also living in the City or County of Peterborough. 

So excited to be taking part in this! Two perfect photos popped into my head when I heard about this. To be able to study for 8 weeks with local artists, Anne Cavanaugh and Tia Saley, is such an amazing opportunity! And it's free, all supplies included! And it's Spring!

Have you signed up to be part of this?

Public Energy presents The 2013 Wearable Art Show
Public Energy’s Annual Fundraiser Fashion Show featuring The Runway Challenge. Join our 3rd annual fashion show fundraiser featuring the talents of Peterborough’s visual arts community as they create the most ingenious wearable art you’ll ever see strutting down a catwalk. For the Runway Challenge we are once again pairing up artists with local businesses and challenging them to create original fashions using nothing but products from that business.

This year's Runway Challengers and their Business partners are:
Janet Howse +  Millwork,  Judith Mason & Cath Adele + East City Flowers,  Kirsten Smith + Peterborough Green-Up, Shannon Taylor + Custom Copy, Vicky Paradisis + Lakefield Pantry,  WendyTrusler + Pammett's Flowers

As well as the Runway Challenge, several local artists (including me!) have been asked to come up with an outfit so I will be at the show with Grace, my model and Cayla, my AC. All I'm saying is that my outfit is entitled "Momento Mori" and I'm very excited to create something for this great cause! Thanks to Laurel Paluck for inviting me to participate!

Cabaret-style table seating: $30 per person  Get the best view, up close to the runway, with a table seat. Table seats are available for any number - come on your own or put a group together. Not available on-line, please call the Public Energy office at 705-745-1788
