The general store was once the original big box retailer; only it came complete with gossip and a place to tie up your horse. In Grey County, the general store culture is still thriving today. They have reinvented themselves to be everything a modern retailer cannot be, which makes them so much fun, and delicious.
The Owen Sound Artists' Co-op is hosting ART ROADS in their Legacy Gallery for the month of May. An “Art road” is an artist's path. It could be an actual road, or a trail or open water, or an imaginative direction. Both Ofra and Dave have shared paths during many years of canoe tripping, cycling, skiing and hiking, and both have had their own separate journeys. The two artists are excited to exhibit new work, representative of recent travels. They use watercolour and drawing, while spending time camping, and bring those images to the studio, developing larger canvases. The Legacy gallery is a wonderful new context to present these works.
