I had a busy summer last year with Stone Shaper Studios, and 2019 looks to be a repeat! We are currently in the process of getting our applications into various Art Walks and Sales which will carry us through till December. Here is a list of what’s going on until fall, 2019.
Saturday, May 4, 2019 10am-4pm 1751 Towne Centre Blvd
One of the best markets in Edmonton, this one attracts a lot of visitors. The market is well curated so there is not an overrepresentation of any particular type of art or product. It is easy to get to, there is NO admission and the parking is free. Honestly it is hard to beat that! This market runs in both the spring and winter, so be sure to mark you calendars.
The Hand2Hand Spring Market is on Saturday, May 4th.
A sampling of what you will find at our table.

The Whyte Avenue Art Walk 2019
July 5-7, 2019 10am - 5pm daily. *Shauna and I will be located on 81st Avenue, between 104 St and 105 St
Imagine a 4 km walk through the hearts and minds of artists. Cultural explorers are invited to see art making in action on the streets of Old Strathcona, a vibrant art district in the historic centre of Edmonton, Alberta. Over 500 visual artists bring their art supplies and artworks out into the streets. Together they create an outdoor studio and gallery spanning several blocks. The Whyte Avenue Art Walk reveals Alberta’s hidden talent and provides an opportunity for patrons to curate their own art collection from many undiscovered masters.
Really the granddaddy of all art walks. Wear your walking shoes because you are in for some great art and a bit of exercise. With restaurants, food trucks and coffee shops all along Whyte Avenue, you will be able to make a day of treasure hunting.
All kinds of treasures…

The third annual curated Leduc Art Walk features more than 100 artists and artisans selling their original artwork and handmade goods. This art walk is easy to get to and always proves to be a good time with live music, great art, and food trucks offering their delights. The Art Walk is a free, accessible arts and cultural festival for all ages!!
See you there!

Allied Arts Council
The Allied Arts Council is located in the Melcore Cultural Centre in Spruce Grove, AB. I consistently have a variety of pieces available through the Allied Arts Council, and will likely be participating in their Open Art Competition (Sept 9-27) and the Abstract Members Show (Dec 2-Jan 10). This is a wonderful small gallery which features local and Alberta artists. This gallery is continually changing up their display, and always has amazing pieces available for sale. Below are a few things currently in stock at this gallery. They also have a variety of my mini stone books, as well as pendants.
