Upcoming Shows and Exhibitions
Shop The Shore, November 9-10, 2019
My garage gallery will be open from 9am-5pm on Saturday, Nov. 9 and Sunday, Nov. 10 for Shop The Shore, a holiday shopping event coordinated by the Long Point Country Chamber of Commerce. Most of the downtown Port Rowan businesses take part, along with some just outside the village, like myself. I'll have coffee and snacks for visitors, but restaurants will be open that weekend, too. I'll be demonstrating traditional carving techniques with hand tools during the show. Come out and see my latest carvings "in real life". Other great gift ideas include pendants, Toad-stones, and cards. My garage is wheelchair accessible, and I have parking for approximately 5 cars at one time. To visit at another time, please contact me to set up an appointment.

The 2019 Canadian Stone Carving Festival, Ottawa, Ontario July 19-21, 2019
I am excited to be a participant in this festival which brings together stone carvers from across Canada, the United States, and Europe. Carvings are completed in an open air workshop on Sparks Street, where the public can watch carvers work using traditional hand tools. Visitors can also try some stone carving in a special demonstration area.
On the Sunday afternoon, after the carvers have spent 18 hours working over three days, the carvings are auctioned off and the proceeds are donated to a local charity. For more information, see https://canadianstonecarvingfestival.com.
