The County has officially proclaimed twenty-twenty as the year to gather. To gather a basket full of local produce, meats, and spirits from a local farm store or market. To gather your friends and family around a big table (or kitchen island), to celebrate each other and the local bounty before you. To gather around a restaurant table and appreciate the love the chefs bring to your plate. It’s the year of you, and your connection to this place through the food you eat and the people you spend time with.
This month’s Legacy Gallery exhibit, Fiber and Wood, at the Owen Sound Artists’ Co-op is a great opportunity to escape April’s fickle weather! Fiber and Wood is a collaborative effort from Michael SanCartier and Sheila Brown-SanCartier. Sheila’s quilted silk paintings with applique and photo transfers are inspired by nature, family and friend, subjects brought to life with her glorious colours choices and attention to detail. Using found wood and reclaimed objects, Michael carves quirky characters and creatures that can be dark, comic, serious and sometimes thought provoking.
