The HFA Directory and Cultural Guide is now being delivered to the Huronia region and the feedback has been very positive - especially on the beautiful and intriguing cover photo created and submitted by Stewart and Nancy of Stewart Vincent Photography.
Nancy tells us how this creative cover came to be ...
I had not planned to place an entry when the Huronia Foundation for the Arts requested ideas for their upcoming directory. But it was a visit to our studio by HFA founding member Lu Robitaille, which sparked an idea for Stewart and I to try. (Lu is a very persuasive person, so what choice did we have?)
But how can one image illustrate the many disciplines within the Arts while also showing how volunteers are an integral part of its overall success?
The timeline was short, less than a week to the deadline. My brain started spinning and my fingers started doodling. The idea of many people coming together to create a whole image seemed to be a viable concept. Thus, a jigsaw puzzle! But what image could depict the definition of the arts as a whole? None, but the definition itself! Hello Oxford Dictionary!Read more: Directory Cover Winner: Stewart Vincent Photography

I’d like to invite Zephyr artists to participate in this county-wide fundraising effort to raise recognition of homelessness and support individual transitional housing organizations. Along with groups in Midland, Collingwood and Barrie, Orillia’s Couchiching Jubilee House is participating in this project. It will be held on April 28 at Twin Lakes Secondary School. With the purchase of a $25 ticket, event attendees will receive a ceramic bowl painted by local students, and enjoy a sampling from an array of soups provided by Orillia restaurants.
Orillia artists can help out by painting a bowl or mug, which will be supplied by Orillia’s Creative Cafe.Read more: Bowls for Beds
