The artists of Halton Hills invite you to go on an ArtsVenture at the Gellert Centre on Saturday and Sunday, April 29 and 30. For your convenience, area artists will display and sell their artwork at this central location from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days, and show you how to enhance your home with "one-of-a-kind" art produced locally. This is a new `venture' this year, with the idea of providing a single location, so that homeowners and art lovers can see a wide range of artists' work with little effort or traveling. The Gellert Centre was chosen for its proximity to Georgetown South, and organizers are hoping that many of our newer residents will come and see what the local arts community has to offer. Artists represented include ArtsVenture organizer Cathy Parker of Acton, who as an artist herself, works in oil, watercolour, glass flamework and textiles. Glen Williams potter CarolAnn Michaelson will show us some of her award-winning pottery. Janine Minor, another Glen Williams artist, will present works in charcoal and pastel. The six artists belonging to Innerscapes will be there to display their eclectic mix of media. Lynne Ellis and Barbara VanSickle will display their pottery, which ranges from functional stoneware to decorative Raku pieces. Gretchen Day will display her watercolours, fabric designs and photographs. Well known local nature artist, Laura Kingsbury, will be there too. Glass artist, Virginia Wilson Toccalino, will show us her Venetian style glassware. The Hobby Horse Quilt Shoppe will display their famous quilts that folks come from miles around to see. The artists of the Williams Mill Gallery will give you a sampling from the 30 artists who make up their Visual Arts Centre in the Glen. Sharon Chalmers will show her mixed media paintings, which often incorporate collage and calligraphy. For those looking for art to display indoors and out, Limehouse metal artist Doris Treleaven will show us her unique pieces. The Credit Valley Artisans will display their members' work and provide course and membership information. The Artisan's Attic will show samples of the work created by a co-operative of many local artists and artisans. Local art casting company, Artcast, will have a display showing how their casting process works. Which Craft will display samples from their Kids Art Studio Experience, and explain their programs available for kids. Various performing arts groups will also be represented. Find out how to buy tickets or get information on how to join Georgetown Globe Productions, the Georgetown Bach Chorale, Georgetown Little Theatre, Georgetown Choral Society, Georgetown Children's Chorus, and Center Stage School of the Arts. There is no admission fee. For details on artists and on other Arts Week activities, see
