THUNDER BAY, ON - NOVEMBER 25, 2009 - DECEMBER DREAMS –an amazing arts and crafts show featuring more than 60 local and regional artists and artisans returns this weekend. The show, produced by the Lakehead Rotary Club, will be held at the CLE Coliseum on Saturday and Sunday and offers for sale thousands of one-of-a-kind hand-crafted creations by artists living in Thunder Bay and rural communities as well as from Northwest communities including Kenora, Dryden, Fort Frances, Upsala, Nipigon, Terrace Bay, and Marathon.
Watercolour paintings will be on exhibit at the show. Murielle Horsman and Coralie Leslie, who study with Peter Humeniuk at the Lake Superior Art Gallery, will be displaying their watercolour works.
Lakehead Rotarians chose to develop and present this new arts and crafts fair to showcase our local creative talent and to celebrate our area’s artists and artisans, many of whom operate as small businesses or cottage industries. The show will offer hand-made jewellery, woodwork, fabric arts, sculptures in glass, stone and metal, paintings, photography, pottery, toys, stained glass, fantasy creatures, games, hand-made knives, leather goods, handtied jigs, and much more. And there will be seasonal tasty treats to enjoy or share in this festive season. The Admission is $ 2 for adults with no charge for children under 12. The proceeds from DECEMBER DREAMS this year will be used to establish a new bursary for a student in our Northern Ontario School of Medicine.
