This month, ceramic artist Jacqueline Sheridan has a beautifully eye-catching display at City Hall. She's included some new work, featuring red trees on a black and gold background, and some exquisite pierced vases in black, gold and red.
Just follow your nose upstairs to the council chambers and voila! there's the display case. Jacqueline's work will be on display until the end of the month, with more available in the gift shop.

There's nothing better than a themed post falling right into the lap of the writer, and this happened when I put my call out for Father's Day items in the gift shop. Two of the artists who answered, Valerie Simons and Vicki Allesia, left these beautiful miniatures (approximately 8 inches square canvas panels) in the vault for me photograph.
So, for all those sailing dads out there - why not keep them afloat even when scuppered on dry land? Beautiful views up Indian Arm on board that graceful sailing vessel. Give dad something to remind him of summers afloat, serenity and pitting his wits against nature ... an escape from the family or dreams of leading his own scurvy pirate crew.

This months' featured artist is fellow jewelry designer Sandra Ho, whose graceful designs to adorn the necks, wrists and earlobes are a firm favourite in our shop.

Yes - there's another annual event we can help you with; Father's Day is coming up really soon (June 17th to be exact). We have all sorts of unique art gifts for you to give to the special man in your life, from woodcarving to ceramic mugs for his morning cuppa to beautiful cards to celebrate the day.
And we're sure he'll appreciate your "shop local" endeavour just as much as mom did last month :)
