Caledon Hills Studio Adventure

It's that time of year again! The Caledon Artists Tour re-branded as the Caledon Hills Studio Adventure to highlight the wonderful opportunity to enjoy a day in the country in the beautiful Caledon Hills, the Fall colours, local restaurants and the Artists'Picks - sights recommended by the Artists to enhance your visit.

The Event is Saturday and Sunday September 27/28 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm each day. There are 7 Studios and guests featuring oil painting, wood carving, textiles, photography, glass, jewellery, leather and pottery. For all the information about Artists and their work as well as locations, maps, etc. please go to our web site

At Cedar Creek I have new works from Southwest Florida and Chesapeake Bay. Some surprises include images with People and Infrastructure just to demonstrate that my creative juices are flowing. In addition, I am experimenting with mounting moody images on canvas, which has the effect of looking like oil paintings - very cool!!

I hope you will come and visit. The atmosphere is informal, the discourse is usually stimulating and the images are professionally presented - lovingly shot and framed!

You can get picnic fixings at Howard's on Airport Road next to LCBO and coffee, chocalate and munchies at Marvelous Munchies next door and for the best meal the Village Bistro at Highways 10 and 24 in The Village of Caledon.

Marsha and I and all my assistants shanghied for the occasion will be excited to seek you.

Call or e-mail for any info or advice.

February 2008 Blog

Hello Everyone-

Time for a winter update on what is doing at Cedar Creek Gallery.

First of all, the Xmas Season in Caledon was the perfect winter holiday; lots of crispy snow, outdoor fun and of course holiday cheer. The images along side were shot on a snowy, misty, kind of a moody day and demonstrate how beautiful winter can be in the Caledon Hills. Two of the pictures "Stragglers" (the bulrushes) and "Imprints in the Mist" (trees in misty background) are both available in the Gallery.

In recent weeks, I have been working diligently to get additional galleries to represent my work or give me an exhibition. I am trying to broaden my reach, while giving current clients and visitors and prospective visitors more convenient access to enjoy the images.

I have had a very positive response from established galleries in the Caledon and Halton Hills areas. It seems that my profile and reputation is growing.

First, the exhibition at the Williams Mill in Glen Williams is now finalized for June 9 - July 6, 2008. Glen Williams is a charming village just north of Georgetown in the Halton Hills. Check it out at

The gallery will show an extensive selection of photographs from around the world - 40 or more framed images will be on display, as well as unframed copies. A reminder of dates, location and maps will be sent out before the show to everyone on my mailing list.

Second, the Dragon Fly Arts gallery in Orangeville (189 Broadway) has agreed to a 2 week show April 15 - 29, 2008. This show will feature a theme - "Sunsets, Sea and Sky". Again, a reminder will go out on the Mailing List as the date draws near. Check out Dragon Fly, it is a very cool gallery with working artists and folk art at

Third, the Burdette Gallery is currently exhibiting a selection of images from Caledon and Muskoka. The gallery is located near Orton half way between Fergus and Orangeville. Directions and info about the gallery itself (a treat to visit) at

A reminder once again if you peruse the web site "Galleries" and decide you would like to make a purchase or discuss please call me at 647 241 2591 or e-mail at

Until next time --- enjoy the "real" winter!
