This Saturday, August 31, some members of the Escape Artists will be participating in the PotashCorp Fireworks Festival Fine Art Show presented by the Pomegranate Artists Group.

It will be located on the sidewalk and street in front of Remai Arts Centre – 100 Spadina Crescent East.

The show will run from 11 AM – 8 PM on Saturday, August 31, 2013.

Art displayed from the show can be purchased, come and celebrate our local artists!

Some of the artists that featured at the show are listed below:


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!

Our second annual ‘Art by the Hearth’ will be held December 4 and 5 this year.

The show will be from 11 am to 5pm on December 4, and from noon to 4:30 pm on December 5.

At our show there will be a wide variety of art works, including paintings, sculpture, reproductions, cards and calendars.

The show will be held again at 1125 13th Street East. We hope you can come and enjoy the show!

Thank you to the many people who came by our fall show this past weekend. On our opening night, we had about 100 people stop by to enjoy the art, the music, and the atmosphere. A good time was had by all! Thanks to all who made it happen.

Sunday afternoon was also well attended, in spite of the fact that the Roughriders’ game was on that afternoon. And they won!

Our next artistic venture that is on the calendar will be the show at the Muttart Conservatory in June 2010. We will keep you updated on any other activities as well.

Several of the Escape Artists have paintings in the 4th annual Members’ Show and Sale at the Mendel Art Gallery. The show runs in the downstairs room of the gallery, during regular gallery hours, from May 30 to June 13. Come by and see.
