Anybody wanting a copy or with Christmas coming, copies of this cd – email me and we’ll get one off to you. 14 stunning songs with everything for accordion to Uilleann pipes and everything in-between.

It's hard to believe that Orillia's Zephyr Art Gallery has been around for 13 years! As a not-for-profit artist-run gallery, we have faced challenges from growing pains to floods but, through it all, we have endeavoured to make our community and the support of emerging artists our top priority. It would not have been possible without the generous support of Orillia artists and businesses.
Will be attended by local government dignitaries, the arts community and our generous sponsors. Zephyr is a community gallery, so all are welcome.Read more: 4th Annual ‘Celebrations Silent Art & Gift Auction’ fundraising event

A unique fundraiser featuring turtle-themed art, craft, photography, decor, jewellery and other exciting creations in support of the Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre.
This year on October 25 at the Evinrude Centre in Peterborough, "The Art of the Turtle" should be better than ever as we celebrate local and regional artists and artisans who support the thriving of Ontario's turtle populations in the wild.
Please find attached the submission forms for "The Art of the Turtle" with all the relevant details, and feel free to contact me should you have any questions at all! We (the committee and myself) would be thrilled with your participation in "The Art of the Turtle", and to see you on October 25, if possible.
Thank you so much!
