I appreciate I can't say "Baby, it's cold outside" for EVERY post this winter. We're hardy Canadians. We KNOW it's cold. But if you were here, you'd be comfy cozy (and have a chance to remember what green looks like). That's right, for those new to us, this is inside the Art Gallery of Burlington and if you're stopping by for today's OPEN STUDIO (all day) with the Burlington Fine Arts Association, nip in here and have a quiet think (or pull out your pencils.. or brushes...). The Life Drawing group is also getting together this morning from 9am til noon.

Not a member of the BFAA? Now's your chance! Info about joining a guild or association is here: www.artsburlington.ca/join-a-guild/

People often ask the Burlington Handweavers & Spinners Guild how it's done. Now you know. You're welcome. :)

If you're new to spinning and handweaving (or perhaps an old hand, but want to meet with like-minded souls), why not stop by tomorrow (Wednesday) and meet some of the members of the guild? They're meeting at 6:30pm in the Textile Studio at the Art Gallery of Burlington on 1333 Lakeshore Road in Burlington, ON.

In the meantime, stay warm and dry tonight. Freezing rain. Sleet. None of this is a good thing.

Well GOOD MORNING SATURDAY. If you need a little indoor-wandering today (it's already too cold for me), why not head over to the Art Gallery of Burlington and enjoy the art displayed throughout the halls? Today's treat with a Christmas theme is from the Sculptors and Woodcarvers who meet Tuesday and Thursday mornings (plus ALL DAY on Friday). New members (or those thinking of joining) are always welcome. A bit more about the guild is here: www.artsburlington.ca/burlington-sculptors-and-woodcarvers-guild/

I stopped by the Art Gallery of Burlington today and said a few hellos with the Burlington Handweavers & Spinners Guild (visitors and new members are welcome!) and nosed around the Art Etc Shop and spoke with Rhonda. The Art Etc Shop artgalleryofburlington.com/ArtEtc/ displays, sells, and rents (yes, you can rent art, either as a company, or in some cases, "try and buy") a variety of Canadian art and works (all of the pieces for sale are Canadian-made except the cards, Rhonda tells me).

Many of the items for sale or rent are by guild/association members Arts Burlington. I'll post more later but for now, here are some wine cups. Cheers!

Today's Wednesday (don't worry, I've had my coffee and I checked) so that means it's Open Studio day for the Burlington Fine Arts Association. If you've ever wanted to join the BFAA at the Art Gallery of Burlington, this may be a good time to stop in (between 9am and 5pm) and see what the BFAA is all about. Public is welcome. There's a bit more about their meetings here on our Events Calendar: www.artsburlington.ca/event/fine-arts-association-open-studio-2/

Oh, and did I mention our new Events Calendar is Google calender and iCal friendly? :)
