Tonight! Naturally Talented Show and Tell @KFPL

Thursday, January 7th from 7-9 pm
At the Wilson Room of the Central Branch of the Kingston Public Library, 130 Johnson Street
Naturally Talented - a Show and Tell event
This event will feature four diverse and accomplished local artists,
displaying and talking about their work.

Carolyn Barnett (wearable art) specializes in colourful, one of a kind, hand loomed knit cardigans, jackets and wraps using wool and cotton. Her work has been shown in shows such as "Women's Work" at Sandra Whitton Gallery (Kingston), The Outdoor Art Exhibition (Toronto), and The Maker's Hand (Picton).

Laura Donefer (glass) has been an important force in the Canadian glass movement for over 27 years and her work is part of numerous collections, including the Museum of Civilization, the Corning Museum of Glass, the Tacoma Museum of Glass, and the Museum of Art and Design in Manhattan.

Marney McDiarmid (ceramics) creates one-of-a-kind, slab-built ceramic pieces that tell stories, flirt with practicality and, often play with notions of femininity. A 2009 OKWA juried show award-winner.

Don Stinson (wood) has been a self employed woodturner and furniture maker full time for the past 25 years. His work has won multiple awards from the One of a Kind Craft Show in Toronto, the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibit, and the Ontario Arts Council.

We will also present a short "sneak peek" preview of the new KAC website,
and present the 2009 Nan Yeoman's Award.

All welcome - Bring your friends!
