The beautiful village of Glen Williams is a treat unto itself - just north of Georgetown (a suburb), it is a picturesque artistic community with a series of galleries and artist studios in close proximity. Close by there is a pub, bakery, and ice cream parlor. All in all a terrific outing easily accessed from Toronto and the GTA.
The gallery is open from Wednesday to Sunday noon to 5:00pm. The Artists Reception is Saturday June 12 from 1:00pm - 4:00pm. There will be at least 1 of the artists there every day.

New Images for Israel and Jordan
The Gallery ready images from Israel and Jordan can be seen at the Israel/Jordan Gallery under Galleries on the web site.
The pictures are in the Gallery at Cedar Creek. Three are mounted on canvas and appear to be paintings. The canvas experiment has now become a genre and occupies a special section in the Gallery. Reaction from the public at large, customers and my fellow artists has been outstanding. The Painters are particularly enamored of the concept. There is now a total of 6 canvas images
I am planning an Open House on a weekend in July and will advise. Also, the Caledon Hills Studio Adventure, the Tour of the Caledon East Artists is scheduled for the weekend of October 3, 4 and I will be sending out invitations to my contact list re. times, etc.
