Exhibition – Surfacing: OFF THE PAGES

Surfacing Magazine, Durham Region’s guide to the arts and culture,  launched in Autumn 2008.  It is celebrating its fourth year and the publication of its Autumn 2012 issue with an exhibition at Whitby’s Station Gallery.

The exhibition, “Surfacing: OFF THE PAGES“, brings together a selection of  works by some of the 100 artists, writers and craftspeople who have been featured in the magazine.

My jewellery was featured in Spring / Summer 2012, and I am pleased to be able to contribute one piece to the exhibition.

The Station Gallery takes its name in honor of the former Grand Trunk Railway Station which is now its home.  The building was slated for demolition before  Whitby Arts Inc., a group of arts enthusiasts, purchased and moved it to its present locationat 1450 Henry St in Whitby  in 1971 .  The gallery has served as a community arts centre for over 35 years.  After an extensive renovation, it has now expanded to almost 10,000 square feet of exhibit, studio, collection storage and administrative space.
