Lisa and the gang have just finished doing our year end which means lots of counting!!! Thank you ladies for pitching in and doing such an amazing job! As they've been saying at the store all week....1,2,3,4,5!!! (this is how they answer the phone when I call hehe)
This month we won't be having just one feature artist but a few! We will be working with H'art School, a local, not for profit "Charitable hub, that provides people with disabilities and those facing barriers with opportunities to study, practice, create and produce works of art". It is part of our philosophy at Cornerstone to be involved with our community and the schools within it. We thought that the Hart School would be an excellent way to initiate this. Please take a look at their website if you have family or friends that would benefit from what they offer.
The show will go up mid March... in the mean time the feature wall will feature... ME! While I've had a couple of photography shows in Toronto it thrills me the most to be at Cornerstone! I'm sure there will be a Zentangle piece or 2 as well!
Easter comes early this month and Good Friday is on March 30. Cornerstone has everything you need to create that special hostess gift.
And speaking of gifts... We have everything you need for appreciation gifts. Realtors & Designers - want to give that special something at the end of your business with a client that will make them never forget you? We have you covered. Lawyers, Doctors, Dental Professionals, Accountants - want to thanks those people for all the amazing client referrals we have you covered for that too! having a speaker at a church function, business meeting or special event and need to thank them for their time & effort? yup - we have you covered there too. Given enough lead time we can even have some of our artists personalize the piece you pick out. Visit our website (
) for more information or drop into the store.
We are at that exciting time of the year when we are ordering for spring and summer. It's always exciting to see what new lines artists are doing. Sometimes we as consumers and appreciators of art, get fixated on an artist's style. Let's just face it - anyone who has done the same job for an extended period of time usually starts to go a little stir crazy. Can you imagine that you're an artist and you "have" to paint the same subject matter over and over again? Doesn't sound very creative after awhile. So while we may personally not resonate with a new style, I think that it's important that we still support our favourite artists as they continue on their artistic journey in this life. I can't wait to see what you all have been up to over the winter!
