Heart & Soul Amulet Jewellery – Heather Hill Gibson (Jan 7 – March 1, 2014)


Heather Hill Gibson developed much of her intuitive knowledge by communing with nature and using the Tarot symbols to gain deeper insights. She completed a study program at Lily Dale, a Spiritual Centre in New York states, and hold certificates in Grief Bereavement and Counseling from Durham College. Heather’s background is in Marketing and Advertising and for over 10 years, successfully blended her entrepreneurial and intuitive skills to create positive business results.

Artist’s Statement:

“Combining my love of jewellery and receiving intuitive messages for each creation, makes them more like an Amulet with a healing message of intention.” I started designing and creating my own unique pieces. Then friends, clients and strangers approached me to make similar adornments for them. Eventually I was asked to display one of a kind art in the Green Goose Gallery, Uxbridge and Chic Thrills, an upscale women’s shop in Stouffville.”

Amulets have been used since ancient times with the intention for healing, to manifest love, wealth and also used for protection. All pieces are one-of-kind intuited with healing properties or a healing message. Most pieces contain a Swarovski crystals and/or semi-precious stones and usually silver or silver plate findings. Jewellery repair and custom changes to any piece of work can be done upon request. There is a three month warranty on closures.

Whimsical Folk Art Inspired Woodcarving – David Trant (October 15 – November 16, 2013)

Obscure Canadian artist, David Trant lives and works at his studio in Prince Albert Ontario. David graduated from OCAD in 1991 where he studied painting, drawing and ceramics.

A self-taught wood-carver, David has been primarily making whimsical, Folk-Art based sculptures for the past 20 years. His style is heavily influenced by his East coast family roots and the additive nature of ceramic sculpture. Working in what he likes to call “The Mr. Potato-Head School of woodcarving.”

Nearly There – Ronald Peter (October 22 – November 16, 2013)



“Working in oils, water colour, pastels and pen and ink, I try to portray culturally interesting, as well as intriguing landscapes and found still life images.

Many of my subjects were discovered while touring North America by motorcycle, allowing me to absorb the atmosphere and subtle nuances of an area, unencumbered and unfiltered by steel and glass.

I studied art in Toronto in the early 1960s and began a career in the graphic arts, specializing in design, publishing and advertising which lasted over 40 years.

Now retired, I am devoting all my time and creative energy to the world of painting. Nearly There is a collection of painted images that speaks about the mystery of recollection and imagination. Places we have been, or hope to see, that live in our hearts and in our minds.

It is my hope that I can, with this exhibit, take the viewer to this world, real or imagined, and make it theirs.

When we see these places portrayed for the first time in our minds, or again in our hearts, we are indeed, ‘Nearly There’”

Ronald Peter

The View From My Back Porch – Deb Harkness & Alena Vyborna (September 24- October 19, 2013)


Opening Reception

Saturday, September 28 – 2pm



Growing up in the country brought a sense of reality to my life, drawing and painting with ink at very young age kept the focus I needed to enhance the medium I use today.  Through-out my life I have moved to the city on numerous occasions, this creating a silent void.  In recognizing and understanding this void it brought me back to my basic art form, this stepping back created a higher level in my work….the use of “steel”!

The deep connection I have in each piece I create brings an evolution of calmness, even thou some pieces are dark, silent and show the hidden mystery of an intense windblown night.

I can create many pieces of one particular natural element, however, every one of these pieces has their own character, in other words….their own “DNA”!

Some pieces are created “spur of the moment” and others are drawn, sometimes over and over again, just to capture the feel, form and movement.

The finishing of the piece is just as important as the creation itself.  I gravitate to an antiquing method or natural rusting… this is finished with many satin urethane coats.  This process keeps the look simple and the quality of the work unique.

The amalgamation of steel, wood and stone invite a reality of life in one’s home.                                              Deb Harkness





As a child I lived in the lush beautiful countryside of Czech Republic. I loved to read the fairy tales and roam through the woods and meadows. Later, after years of working with textiles, I developed a passion for silk fabrics and painting on them.

The excitement to watch flow of the paint on silk, combined with a fascination for nature’s intricate designs, endless colour combination and respect for all living things gives me an opportunity to play with colours and textures in my dream world.

When a painting is finished it has a life on its own. I feel like a magical light is shining out of it.

I also love to design and execute art to wear garments. Silk is a wonderful material to use, because it allows you literally take the painting of the wall and wear it.

When people watch my work I want them to feel the light and joy of a child dancing through a sunny meadow.
