Our 25th Anniversary Open Studio is coming up! Details below. More on our website and our Facebook Page.
Artist: Cindy Stelmackowich
On the occasion of our 25th anniversary, we will showcase our Ottawa2017 “Cut the Cake - Celebrate” project featuring our unique and inspired cakes, which interpret this universal symbol of celebration. Cakes made of copper wire, plaster dental molds, butter wrappers, and sponges. Cakes suspended from the ceiling, painted into abstraction, and anti-cakes. Explore these creative interpretations of cake and visit the studios of our 22 artists. Additionally, archival photo displays of the original 1920s bakery have been developed and will be on exhibit to highlight the history of our building, the Standard Bread Factory. Bakeries, cakes and art - what is there not to LOVE!
We've restocked our selection of newborn gowns, a must-have in any newborn layette. These gowns provide quick and easy access to the diaper area, which is important when you're changing diapers so frequently in those first few weeks. Their foldover cuffs will prevent your newborn from accidentally scratching her face, and the gown opens completely making it easy to dress and undress your newborn. #newbornessentials#newbornfashion#ottawababy#ottawamom#shop613#shoplocal#babygift#hintonburg
Today is the WEST Studio Tour from 11 to 5, dido for tomorrow, so come to 18 Hampton to see me. Grab your brochure and then hit the rest of the artists on the map. So much talent!! Here's my tribute to Game of Thrones, all my cool rusty bits for making collage paper and my new seal stamp. I shall send them out to the realm. Do you see it, or am I spending too much time watching GOT? No spoilers I'm only on season 3!!
Little Ray's payed us a visit yesterday and boy did we have fun! All the kids loved this and learned so many new facts. Like how geckos lick their eyeballs when they get dry because they can't blink. The difference between a snake and a leg less lizard. And how the box turtle can close its shell. We love learning about new animals and getting to see them in real life and not just in a story book is such a bonus! Everyone was so very brave as we all took turns to pet the reptiles or even let them slither across our laps! Can you say that you've ever given a tarantula a high-five? We can!

#TGIF Look at this weather! ☉ Wouldn't it be nice to walk down to NU and grab a lunch? Freshly made by @mmmchef Daniela: protein-rich tofu stir fry, light summer salad, creamy potato salad or crunchy coleslaw. I think I'm going for that Coleslaw! 😍
And you can still get a jar of hummus if you missed our #HummusThursday 😉
