Art by the Lake

One can hardly imagine a more beautiful setting for the Lakeshore Artists' annual fall show than the beautiful, terraced grounds of Stewart Hall in Pointe Claire. The event was held on September 6 and 7, and though the first day was compromised by showers and lower attendance, Sunday more than made up for it with glorious sunshine, a gentle breeze off the lake, and constant traffic.

Helena was the show coordinator, managing more than 50 artists and their work, and I was honoured to be a Guest Artist. Our secondary mission was to raise the profile of fibre as art, and we did the cause proud.

Here is Helena in a rare, quiet moment. Her tent was thronged with visitors all day, and she made a number of nice sales.

And here I am with my display of Cityscapes. Though I didn't make any significant sales, I was busy all day, answering questions and accepting compliments from people who were excited to see something they considered to be truly unique.

The Lakeshore Artists Association is considered to be an elite group in the Montreal area, and having fibre represented in the context of their show is a welcome opportunity.


  1. Well done to both of you. It was a lovely day, and I'm sorry I missed it- it was a lovely day at the cottage too!

  2. Nice pictures, Heather. It's such a beautiful venue, they are lucky to have you both take part.
