Art Opening at the Heliconian Club -- and I'm a member in the Month of Fresh Starts

This week I learned that I've been accepted to be a member
of the Heliconian Club -- Canada's oldest club for women in
the arts.  That is the quite the honour.  And today I visited an
exhibition there featuring three magnificent artists: Catherine Maunsell,
(one of my sponsors) Susan Power, and Kye Marshall.  Catherine
 and Susan are painters and Kye is a photographer. The show is stunning
 and there was a good crowd out to the opening this afternoon which
ran from 1 - 4 p.m.

photography exhibition 
is based on the Iris. And she is displaying
are many exquisite photos on this theme.)  

It is a superb exhibition and I strongly recommend that you
contact the club to find out the times when you can see it.  The
space is used for many activities. 
It was a great opening -- work was selling very quickly, and guests
were having so much fun.  If you would like to see the show you

Have an enjoying art shows day!
