Yes - it's on the move again! The Appleyard Residence is once more in transit but this time to its final resting place (we hope).
Why not swing by the Arts Centre this weekend and see this venerable historic building bedding down next to the old city hall? The gift shop will be open 12 noon to 4pm both days; there's an awesome gallery exhibition; skies are blue ... history is being made in your community.
Drop in and say hello to our new neighbour - give it a good old Tri Cities welcome!
Welcome home old house, welcome home!

It's an art form that is open to endless experimentation with textures and pigments. Celery makes a strong, almost translucent paper, whereas tea leaves make a lovely soft paper. Fuchsias and geraniums add wonderful colors.

I feel I have achieved an expanded paper product and art form of different textures and of organic pigments. This art form is just beginning and is an ongoing process of experimentation....
