Back in December, 2007, Whitestone Gallery had its inaugural Christmas Show and Sale. Since that time the Artist Collective has worked to establish the Gallery as a reliable resource for artistic excellence in the community. Saturday, Dec 7, for 1-4 is our Opening Reception. We have over 100 pieces of original artwork, many in smaller format, to appeal to the Holiday Shopper. The show runs through into January. On Fridays and Saturdays, one of our artist members is present to help and assist.
Hurry on over to Whitestone because you don’t want to miss Tom Dietrich’s wonderful paintings with swirls of bubbles and colour.
In the middle gallery, we are into our pre-Christmas show of smaller works by the members of Whitestone Collective. With the discerning holiday shopper in mind, we have assembled an array of terrific small treasures, ready to be carried off to rest under your Christmas tree or go proudly to just that right location in your home or for someone special. Opening Reception for the new Annual Group Holiday Show will be Saturday, Dec 7, 1-4 with refreshments
As always, we have one of our artists at the Gallery all day Friday and Saturday for your shopping convenience.
Members Jean Loney, Heather Wood, Barb Bryce are joined by Heather Robinson, CristinaCiloci, Gabriella Vegvari, and Karen Bellamy in their exhibition of glass creations at the Guelph Music Centre until January 6, 2014. Please visit the Artist Reception on Saturday, Nov. 16 from 10 AM to 4 PM to chat with the artists about how they create such lovely works of art.
A lovely evening with family and friends while we marvelled at Tom Dietrich’s new work. Entitled “Why Not Dream?”, the oil-on-canvas pieces treat the observer to a lovely and lively dance of colour and form. The show runs to Nov. 29 so there is still time to pop into the Gallery and see this engaging show. We would recommend a Friday or Saturday when one of the Whitestone artists are present to answer any questions you may have.
Several of our Whitestone members are participating in the Annual Guelph Studio Tour this coming weekend Oct 18-20. Pick up a copy of the brochure at Whitestone (not open Sunday) and visit the studios and see the latest art being exhibited by our members Tom Dietrich, Mary Karavos, Nancy Farrell, Deborah Dryden, Michelle Leblanc and Larry Lawrence. There are 39 artists involved showing their creations Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday. Drop by…we’d love to see you!
A congenial crowd of well-wishers, family and friends came to the opening of Larry Lawrence’s current art exhibition. The “barnyard buddies” were well behaved and we even had fresh brown eggs to give to the patrons. The show continues until the end of October. Here are some photos from the evening:
