Handcrafted Jewelry — Designed to be Different

Water Valley Art Show

Leave a comment

Folks with the Chinook Creative Arts Foundation sure know how to put on an event. Their annual one-day Art Show this past weekend had such an array of work — paintings, watercolours, bronzes, stuffed animals, quilts, woodcarving, stained glass, photography and jewelry — all done by local artists and artisans.

The organizers also had great food and live music by local musicians. And of course, it wouldn’t be springtime in Alberta if we didn’t get a real blizzard as we were packing up to go home.

This was my first time at the show and I loved it. It has a real rural flavour. People came and went all day, some returning more than once. Old and young, babes in arms, singles, families — there was something for everyone to see.

Some of us did demonstrations. Duncan Robertson was a real hit with his “quiet woodworking”. I spent my time beading. It’s an enjoyable way to meet people. When I do demonstrations I’m also more likely to make sales — which I did. A great way to spend a day!

Beads? What can I say — they snuck up on me when I wasn't looking. Now I'm hooked.
