Last week I made the drive to Clinton, Ontario to drop off some of my art, and work a shift at a new store there called ‘Mama & Me, the Canadian Artisan Gift Boutique’. The business owner, Crystal, was the Grand Prize Winner of Central Huron’s Win This Space Contest, and has worked very hard to transform her vision into a reality. As she put it, only 16 gallons of paint and 400+ hours of labour later… her shop was ready to open! It’s full of handmade items displayed in unique ways mostly on re-purposed furniture, which gives it a nice, welcoming, homey feel. The address is 17 Victoria St., Clinton, ON, and it’s not far from Bayfield, Goderich, and Blyth. Open from 11 am-5 pm Tuesday to Friday, 10 am to 5? pm Saturday (not sure) and closed Sundays and Mondays.
I took two fractal watercolour paintings, two fractal metal prints, two watercolour paintings from my ‘Cats of Italy’ series, and another large watercolour painting of lotus blossoms to be hung in the store. I didn’t get to hang them while there, but we decided where they were going and she has promised to send photos when they’re up! Here are most of them, waiting patiently in the area reserved for workshops:
