This year’s show ‘Shapes and Sizes’ will be profiling approximately 150 works inspired by the province’s great outdoor spaces, landscapes, cities and towns, including featured artists –Steve McDonald, David Marshak, and Elzbieta Krawecka.
Our art collection from our Artists in Residence will be in the show!
Please come out, have fun, buy and see great art and get together with colleagues and friends with food, drink, appetizers and a great evening that is widely appreciated, helps young minds and young leaders, helps protection and appreciation of our wilderness and helps gives young people the chance to go to camp and experience Ontario’s great outdoors.
Thirty canoeists attended Quetico Foundation’s Canoe Day. We canoed along the Big Creek valley through the Carolinian forest with its verdant trillium carpet and flowering trees, past rolling landscapes with streams and wetlands that feed the headwaters of the Big Creek National Wildlife Area.
Many genuine thanks to each canoeist and everyone for your support of the Quetico Foundation’s Student Summer Research Program on our paddle along Big Creek, Saturday May 7, 2016. As well as for good, wholesome and fun conversations and great canoeing among a great group.
We had an exceptional evening at the annual Quetico Foundation-Taylor Statten Camping Bursary Fund art show. Many many thanks to the Artists in Residence who donated their pieces, to the great people behind the TSCBF, to the Storys Building, to our Quetico Foundation supporters and to everyone who came out. We really appreciate your support! It was great to help provide further support to the Quetico Foundation’s programs, help send interested young people to camp, wonderful to have great conversations, meet some new faces, make new associates and see old friends. We can’t thank you enough for helping to protect the legacy of our wilderness and natural areas.
