Apples and Arts tour

The Glengarry News - - News - BY MAR­GARET CALD­BICK

Lo­cal art and craft lovers were served up a dose of colour ther­apy over the week­end soak­ing in the spec­ta­cle of the first week of Fall while roam­ing the countrysid­e to visit the studios and work­shops of as many artists and crafters as they could fit in.

More than 60 artists were on the of­fi­cial list of the 25th an­nual SD&G Apples & Art Tour. An ad­di­tion this year was Sherry Lamb Hein­zle, from out­side Glen Robert­son, who in­tro­duced her exquisitel­y ren­dered coloured pen­cil works to a new au­di­ence at Marlin’s Gar­dens.

Trained as a graphic artist, Ms. Lamb took up her oeu­vre just two years ago and since then was se­lected for in­clu­sion in Ann Kull­berg’s “CP Trea­sures, Color Master­works from around the Globe, Vol­ume IV” pub­lished in May. In June she was fea­tured in a ju­ried show at Gallery 300 Tal­ents in Mon­tréal, and most re­cently was ac­cepted into the pres­ti­gious Pen­cil Art So­ci­ety In­ter­na­tional Ju­ried Ex­hi­bi­tion tak­ing place Sept. 29-Oct. 11 in Ot­tawa.

The tour was a re­minder that more and more fine artists are mak­ing their home here in Glen­garry, some of them in­ter­na­tion­ally known.
