New Sign at Galerie de La Rive

Hi Everyone, The unveiling of the new signboard at the Galerie de La Rive too place earlier this week. It was a lovley event. Partners of the Gallery, Desjardins Caisse Populaire Trillium as well as representatives from RONA J. Lalonde & Sons of Hammond, Ont. were present at the event. Thanks to their financial support, the Galerie de la Rive was able to fund and erect the new Sign. Also present was the mayor of Clarence-Rockland, Richard Lalonde, who assured the city’s continued support of the Galerie de la Rive and its artists. This new Signboard is a tangible representation of the presence of art and artists in the community.

Happy Customer - My Shoes from Zazzle

Hi Everyone, Sorry I have been away on vacation and have not posted since. We had a quiet vacation and the weather was not very nice. Lots of rain here in Eastern Canada and around the Great Lakes Region. A very wet summer an quite cool. Well, I am now back to work and busy with the publicity work for the gallery and the upcoming exhibition in August.

I received a lovely email from a happy customer who purchased My Tuscan Poppies design on Keds shoes from Zazzle. She is thrilled with her shoes and the quality.

Here are a few pictures of the shoes she sent me:

Here is what Cheryl said the about the shes: "I totally suggest them to anyone. They don't fit to the small side. I run 7 to an 8 and the 7 1/2 gives enough room for socks or fine without. The Tuscan Poppies turned out really great!!!"
