On Sunday last we walked to our friend Billy’s place in James Bay for our annual pumpkin carving evening. Just the walk through the gorgeous autumn dusk was spectacular, and then we had so much fun with friends old and new!
Caught a beautiful sky in my neighbourhood the other day, as the daylight was fading away. We are finally starting to have some real autumn days after a very prolonged and delightful summer. My favourite time of year!
A recent show at Dales Gallery featured the beautiful photography of Dag Goering. His compelling images of elephants are traveling the world to bring awareness to the ongoing challenges these magnificent creatures face. Dag and his wife Maria Coffey run Elephant Earth Initiative which “supports pragmatic, science-based approaches to elephant welfare and conservation.” They also have a wonderful adventure travel company called Hidden Places Travel.
Our dear friend Dame Mailarta has organized another wonderful show for the International Mail Art Exhibition: Mailmania 5. This year’s exhibit took place at the Slide Room Gallery at the Vancouver Island School of Art in September. Art was mailed to Studio J from all around the world. Check out the Mailarta blog here, and send some art along!
