I was asked to provide an update on the locations of the Little Library Project so that you can take a tour. I've done my best to find out where they are all located and this seems to be one of those projects that has passed many hands and so it is difficult to provide more information. If you can give me more precise locations or addresses, please email me!
Here are the locations for each artist:
Robyn Town's is outside a private residence at 94 Ward Street.
Allyson Demoe's is at the Alfred Street park (take a left on the side street at Petro Can & 28)
Mine is in the Memorial park (where the bandshell is)
Jennifer Anne Burke's is outside a private residence on King Street (I don't have the address, let me know if you find it).
Catherine Lynn's is outside a private residence at Strachan and Victoria streets.
Robyn's second library, unfortunately, has not been placed yet.
The libraries on private properties will be maintained by the house owners, otherwise the public library will be in charge of stocking them. If you see one in need of books please feel free to donate!
Wow, where do I begin?
Some of you may have noticed that I haven't been my best self lately. You see, over the Easter holiday weekend we had an accidental disaster happen in our home and we sustained water damage on both levels of our house. This includes where I usually make my art (and kitchen, dining room, living room, family room). Luckily, no completed art was damaged but unfortunately it has considerably slowed any works in progress since I now have to paint outside. It's also caused us tremendous personal stress.
Our house is still in the same condition but we now have a path forward with the insurance company and the disaster restoration companies. Hopefully construction will begin soon.
I hope that explains to you why I haven't been completely on top of my blogging, newsletters and website maintenance.
On a good note, my annual one-day art show with Jennifer Anne Burke is still happening ( 'Home' Saturday July 28, 12:30-4:30pm, St. Mark's Church, Port Hope, ON). Although, I will have less work to show you than I normally do, most of my new work is in oils which will debut at this show!
Thank-you all for your patience and support during this time.
I will keep you updated on my latest work and perhaps some insight into my creative process.
