This fall will be a busy show year for me. With one already under my belt and not enough time to get it posted, here is a list of all future fall shows for 2013:
The Calyx Art Show Saturday Oct 19th 10-4 at the Crescent Heights Community Centre 1101 2 St NW, Calgary.
The Calyx Art Show is set up like an art gallery. You will be able to meet all the artists as we are all present for the entire show. There are a whole new group of artists on each day (I am only there on Saturday Oct 19th), so it is like an entirely different art show on both days. There is free parking, free admission and you can enter for a free draw prize. Selections of artwork include original paintings, sketches, pottery, silver smithing, jewellery, basket weaving, wood turning, fibre arts, hand weaving, silk print scarves and much more. This show is all handmade, so no shortcuts and nothing imported. You are supporting local artists from Western Canada.
Elbow Valley Arts & Crafts will be the following show on Sat Nov 2, 10-4 & Sun Nov 3, 10-4 at the Elbow Springs Golf Club located at 240086 Lott Creek Drive, Calgary. This is a first time show for me, so unfortunately, I cannot comment on previous shows here. What I can say is that this is located in a beautiful area on the far west side of Calgary on your way to the mountains along Hwy 8. You may find the Christmas gifts you are looking for and also have a drive out to the foothills with spectacular views.
Spruce Meadows Christmas Market is a big one extending over 3 weekends. Fri Nov 15, 10-8, Sat Nov 16, 10-7, Sun Nov 17, 10-5. Next weekend: Fri Nov 22, 10-8, Sat Nov 23, 10-7, Sun Nov 24, 10-5. And the last weekend: Fri Nov 29, 10-8, Sat Nov 30, 10-7, Sun Dec 1, 10-5. This show is located at the famous Spruce Meadows in Calgary located at 18011 Spruce Meadows Way SW (Hwy 22x or Marquise of Lorne Trail as some of you know it). My booth is located at Riding Hall booth # 27. This is a busy show with so much to see.
Waldorf Faire is another great show that I will be at. It overlapped with a day of Spruce Meadows, so you will see me at the Waldorf School instead of Spruce Meadows for Sat Nov 23, 10-5. This is located in Calgary at 515 Cougar Ridge Drive SW behind Canada Olympic Park area. Fun show for kids as they have many crafts and activities for them to enjoy around the halls and classrooms in the school. The market itself is the the gymnasium which is transformed into an eclectic mix of artists with their handmade goods.
During these shows, my jewellery will also be shown at the Christmas in the Country Sale located in Dartique Hall north of Cochrane at 282252 Horse Creek Rd. This show runs Thurs Nov 28, 1-6, Fri Nov 29, 1-6 and Sat Nov 30, 10-4. This is a great venue for antique and handmade country chic gift items. Dartique Hall is the old dance and community hall for their rural neighbourhood. There is a great mix of gift items to choose from in a quaint setting. Definitely worth the drive up north to see this one.
And finally, for those who know me, I have my friends and family on Sat Dec 7 from 12-4 to wrap the season up. Please contact me if you are friend or family or acquainted from my home town to get more information as this is a private showing.
Wishing you all a wonderful fall season!
