I was so excited to see the new gallery that gifts Bridge Street and Belleville. Friends, Peter Paylor and Lisa Morris, took me under their artistic wings on my last visit in 2013. Since then, they have opened a spectacular and vital space on Bridge called Artists & Artisans Studio and Gallery! Whoot! Love the sensibility and the openness to emerging and practicing artists of every variety. These two are Makers and Shakers! I’m so glad to be able to reconnect.
Peter Paylor’s art, both wood carvings and prints, was featured in the recent opening, Sumac and Cedar. The artist harvests fallen and cast off wood and creates uplifting pieces of sculpture that are exquisite. Lisa’s jewelry and paintings are also exhibited throughout the well-loved space. At the opening, hospitality was extended to this Calgary chick, by every one I met.
