Wow. Just got the snazzy looking brochures for the Fine Art Society of Milton Fall Studio Tour.
36 artists at 26 different locations in and around the Escarpment area of Milton, Ontario.
SATURDAY & SUNDAY
Very please to announce that this year I will be showing as a 'Guest' of Doris Treleaven, a metal worker of both big and small projects. Her studio is HUGE! (Location 25, on above map.) From my end, I'll be showcasing my pinhole photography as well as giving small demos with my hand-made pinhole cameras, (no darkroom though!).

UPDATE, Oct 4th: A few quiet moments from this year's tour .... All in all, given the gray weather, it was surprisingly busy - with people coming from as far afield as Toronto, Barrie and downtown. Oakville! Doris's studio, just outside of Acton (as marked above, and seen below), is a treasure trove for eclectic 'metal-art' shoppers. She uses other materials too, like stain glass & wood etc., on commissions. If passing thru the area, make sure you do take 1/2 an hour to check out this truly unique artist & her busy workshop.
Short 12 minute documentary of Doris's metal-working
studio now published on Raise the Hammer.
UPDATE: Nice bit of press from the Milton Champion.
(Note - tour has ALWAYS run for two days, that's nothing 'new'.)
UPDATE: ha - who knew?!? Was also listed as a 'Culture Days' event, (listed by FASM.)
UPDATE, Jan, 2017.
Cleaning up the2016 desk top, came on this shot of my set-up.
Not the best shot, but hey, posterity!
