The show is on until the end of January, and on Saturday Jan 18 a special ‘show day’ will be held. If you can’t get out there that day, check with the regular hours on their site.

Autumn is definitely upon us. With our first snow of the season, we start to turn inwards.

This autumn, the Escape Artists have decided to take a hiatus for their usual ‘Art by the Hearth’ show. For various reasons, we decided that the time wasn’t right for this fall.

However, various members of the group will be participating in local shows during November, so you will have a chance to see some of their work at these events. Here is a list of dates and places for those shows:

Thanks to everyone who came out and made our third annual ‘Art by the Hearth’ show a success. Lots of visitors, cooperative weather, and good companions made for an enjoyable weekend.

You can see some photos on our flickr link to the left.

We wish you all a Happy Holiday and all the best for 2012!

This month the Escape Artists were able to get together a couple of times and make some plans for the fall.

First, Linda has returned to Costa Rica, and will be back in December, with some new works based on her life in the jungle and mountains there.

Second, Michelle has begun a new venture, a framing business, called ‘Framer’s Edge’. It is now open in the Glengarry Building, 245 3rd Ave S, 5th floor. She is now open for business and will be having a Grand Opening on October 21st and 22nd. Be sure to check out the great stairwell.

Third, the Escape Artists will have their 3rd Annual ‘Art by the Hearth’ fine art show and sale on December 9 and 10. Mark your calendars. Details will follow soon.

So things are happening for the Escape Artists this autumn. We hope you have been enjoying our spectacular weather!
