Saturday, December 7th only
In the studio on Saturday December 7th the furniture of Wilkins Design and Jeff Baker. These artists put an artist’s twist on reclaimed wood. Each piece is a meeting of form with function.
Congratulation to Ryan Lamoureaux
Ryan Lamoureux is our Youngest Uxbridge Arts Association member and has two pieces hanging in Blue Heron Studio in Uxbridge. He just won the 2013 Art Battle in Peterborough, where he is attending Trent University.
According to Ryan…
The 2013 Art Battle took place on November 21st at the Venue in Peterborough. There were two rounds of paint-battles (each round only 20min long). The top two voted by the crowd from each round moved onto the finals. The four finalists painted a second piece for the final round.
It was an amazing experience to be painting so fast in such a short period of time. The host announced the whole time and the crowd did a count down…so it was pretty intense.
Come the final round, it was crazy to look around at the other artists and realize that I was up against Art instructors and other people who had gone to school studying fine art! I was pretty excited, and now I get to go onto the upcoming provincial art battles and represent Peterborough there!

Books and Brunch with Maureen Jennings, author of the Murdoch Mysteries and a new historical mystery trilogy- March 9, 2014
March 9 at Wooden Sticks Golf Club at 11am. Tickets are $25 and include full brunch.
“Ignorance is not bliss. That’s the short and firm message in this terrific second Tom Tyler mystery from Maureen Jennings. Fans who mourn for the Murdoch tales of Victorian Toronto should not despair; he will return. But the Tyler series, set in Second World War England, shows all of Jennings’s talent for historical mystery. . . . With great historical detail, solid characters and a really good plot, this series is another winner for Jennings. Fans of the Foyle’s War TV series should rejoice.”
—Globe and Mail
Born in England, MAUREEN JENNINGS taught English before becoming a psychotherapist. The first Detective Murdoch mystery was published in 1997. Six more followed, all to enthusiastic reviews. In 2003, Shaftesbury Films adapted three of the novels into movies of the week, and four years later Shaftesbury (with CityTV, Rogers, UKTV, and Granada International) created the Murdoch Mysteries TV series which is now shown around the world, including on CityTV in Canada, the Alibi channel in the UK, and on most PBS stations in the United States. Her new trilogy, set in World War II-era England, got off to a spectacular start with 2011′s Season of Darkness.
