New for Fourth Friday in May: “Pillow Talk”. The idea is to have a bohemian style-evening to exchange ideas. The theme this month is “Folk Music and Social Change”. Our guests are encouraged to bring pillows or cushions to sit on.
Our special guest is singer/songwriter James Gordon. In addition, we plan a group art project, a presentation by Bill Barrett of Planet Bean about Fair Trade Coffee and open mic for words of inspiration either poetry or prose. The evening is free and coffee and nibbles will be available.
Please join us on Friday, May 24 (weekend after the long weekend) from 7-9 for something a little different.
Jean Loney is presenting her mosaics in a new show called “Andemento” in the front feature Gallery during the month of May. You can meet the artist and see the new work on Saturday, May 4, 2-4 PM.
“Andemento”refers to the positioning of the tesserae in a mosaic. In these new works, Jean plays with much smaller pieces to better reference light, depth and dimension. For more information visit Jean’s website.
Sunday, April 21 was this year’s Jazz Festival Art Auction. It was a terrific afternoon with the addition of Robert Enright from the University of Guelph to make a personal comment on each piece of art as they came up for the live auction. Artwork from five members of Whitestone: Mary Karavos, Grayce Perry, Tom Dietrich, Michelle Leblanc (Lawrence), and Larry Lawrence were part of over 50 pieces up for auction. Former Whitestone members Richard Pilon and Daniel Durocher were also part of the very successful fundraiser.
The Whitestone Gallery Collective is proud to announce
A SLICE OF LIFE
Paintings by Norma Lee
The show runs from April 6 to 26.
Join us for an opening reception at the gallery on April 6, 2 – 5 p.m.
In this show, says Norma, she gives a snapshot into the subjects that have touched her in the last year. The works in oil combine vibrant colours with a more subdued palette. She has endeavoured to capture the mood of the subjects she has depicted through a close study of light.

February 2, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
