For any of you who know Cortes Island, you will already be aware of what a vibrant arts scene we have here. Case in point: the image above is a ceramic platter made by Ester Strijbos. It is currently being shown at The Old Schoolhouse Gallery in Whaletown in a show called Layers. Ester's ceramics and Janny Thompson's mono-prints blend beautifully, as you can see for yourself:
Adding another layer to the show, the artists invited me to write a story connected to the tugboat image to read at the show, which I did. Last night, I was very pleased to be part of an amazing art show. If you are interested, the story is HERE.
Thanks so much to everyone who came out to hear me read last night. I LOVE reading to you.
And if you haven't seen the show yet, hurry over to Whaletown right now--you have today and tomorrow, September 2 and 3, from 2:00 - 6:00 p.m.
The artists: Janny Thompson and Ester Strijbos
