Mary Gair Fine Art

AUGUST 18 & 19 ALL DAY FRANKLIN STREET ARTISAN VENDOR ZONE

Mary Gair grew up in Toronto but has spent the majority of her adult years in Muskoka. It is in this setting she fostered her deep affection for nature and wildlife. Setting forth to capture the flora and fauna of her everyday surroundings, she produced a number of canvases dedicated to life in her backyard pond. Not content to type-cast her abilities as an emerging artist, she began to embark on unfamiliar territory in the form of entering juried shows within her arts community. One such competition called for painters to express “their” Canadian moment in a 150th anniversary show. This allowed Gair to tap into her lifelong love of sport, most notably Canada’s pastime, hockey. What began as a small canvas, depicting one of the heroes of the 1972 Canada/Russia series, has led to a collection of paintings showcasing snippets of a defining moment in the collective Canadian consciousness.

Vicky Harrison Designs

Vicky Harrison has been the designer and producer of a line of crystal jewellery and accessories since 1987. She produces unique pieces using sculpted silver, Swarovski crystals, Swarovski Pearls, and Sterling silver, inspired by the beautifully coloured crystal formations found in nature.
After earning a BA at McMaster, a BSc at Waterloo and a BEd at Brock, Vicky spent much of her career as a teacher. During that time she cultivated her interest in jewellery design taking additional courses in fashion design and wire sculpting jewellery courses at Mohawk College. During this time her style began to emerge and she had the opportunity to observe the effect her pieces had on the wearer, particularly colour choices.
Vicky has participated in numerous craft shows in Ontario and the Prairie provinces during which time she was able to develop her ideas about colour: how colours evoke an emotional response and how the colours we choose reflect our emotional state.
Vicky Harrison’s Designs have been the recipient of several awards:
Best Overall Exhibit – Marshville Heritage Festival,
Honourable Mention for Giftware of the Year – Handcrafted Division – CGTA,
Second Place Ribbon in Jewellery Category – Barrie Kempenfest

The Azure Owls – handpainted Stones & Gifts

AUGUST 18 & 19 FRANKLIN STREET ARTISAN VENDOR ZONE

Michael and Sharron have over 20 years combined experience painting glass, wood, fabrics, metals and
stones. In 2015, The Azure Owls was created to focus on stones, and meditative art. They create
original hand painted pendants, worry & meditation stones, mandala and original canvas art using dip
pens and acrylic inks.
Michael and Sharron started The Azure Owls Handpainted Stones & Gifts in the fall of 2016, after our
close friends requested we make their wedding favors. We painted over 200 stones for their reception
and since then have been designing and producing handpainted stones for our pendants, paperweights,
worry stones and so much more! In the past year, our collection, customer and fan base have grown
exponentially. Our painted stones are unique, original and are much more than just a stone.
PROCESS / HOW THEY ARE MADE
Our stones are cleaned, painted with acrylic inks, dip pens, and brushes, all are original designs, no
stencils or transfers are ever used. All stones are then protected with several coats of spray varnish.
Bails and waxed cotton cording is attached for the pendants. The mini and large mandala canvases are
painted with an ink wash and drawn/painted with original designs in black. Greeting cards, gift tags and
bookmarks have original mandala designs printed in black on ink washed watercolour paper and either
mounted on a greeting card or coloured card stock for bookmarks with tassel. Mini pillows are painted
on cotton fabric with a background wash or design, a mandala or design in painted and they are heat
set, and sewed into pillows. All of our designs are original, free hand and no stencils are ever used.

Anne Marie

AUGUST 18 & 19 FRANKLIN STREET ARTISAN VENDOR ZONE

I love the place where all creative ideas reside . Experiencing this place of creativity is within everyone. Expressive art is my way of intuitively painting in various media and has helped me move through my healing journey. I suffer from depression and PTSD, and besides a meaningful therapy process, I was longing to experience the creative part of me. Intuitively I knew that expressing myself creatively would help me! The Creative Hub/ Creative Works studio opened that door for me. I experienced first hand how the process of creating a space within me to express myself through art was nurturing and a place of wellness. Expressive Art has facilitated a place of mindful self discovery created in the moment. Mindfulness teaches us to become the observer of ourselves and our surroundings in the present moment. The process of expressive art is one of many meaningful ways life teaches us. This is my journey.

Diane Leslie

AUGUST 18 & 19 FRANKLIN STREET ARTISAN VENDOR ZONE

As an assemblage artist I find Encaustic a wonderful medium for combining the various elements of my pieces: photographs, Japanese Paper, shells, stones, driftwood, transfers and Found Objects. There is an old saying; God created humans because He loved stories. I create art because I see the stories that unfold moment by moment in our collected experiences. Any item can tell a story, an old key, a piece of lace or even just clouds moving across the sky. I also love paradox and juxtapositions; the relationships between people, the shadow dance of light and dark, the tension between joy and sorrow. My goal is for the you to see the world with fresh eyes and a sense of wonder and delight.
