Children are creative, that goes without saying. They draw pictures for mom and dad who place their drawings on the kitchen door and we dress up with our siblings and friends. But somewhere along the line, most of us stop playing make believe. Some of us do make it into adulthood retaining our imagination and we call these people artists. Join us as we celebrate local artists and the fruits of their imagination.

This show celebrates the connection that five local artists — Scott Abbott, Laura Coutts, Leslie Miles, Janet Ollers and Kathleen Schmalz — have with their city.
Students of all levels are welcome to join Living Yoga & Health from 5:30-6:30 pm. The focus is on breathing and moving with awareness through specific warm-ups to open the body in preparation for the yoga poses being taught. The benefits of poses and modifications for different abilities will be offered.
This class reflects the yoga teaching on self-less service, and is often referred to as Karma Yoga. Teachers give freely of their time, and all funds raised through the “pay-what-you-can” donations ($5-$10 recommended) are given to support charitable needs within our community. These classes are taught by various teachers.
Living Yoga & Health is located at 105 Wyndham St North.

A few years ago he made the move to Toronto and is quickly acquiring a place on the scene here and is a regular here at Musideum.
David Woodhead has explored much musical territory on his own and with other notable travellers. His creative instrumental work has appeared on over 200 albums in the contemporary folk field, and he has worked with countless artists including Perth County Conspiracy and it”s many branches, Garnet and Stan Rogers, Scott Merritt, Don Ross, Oliver Schroer, Loreena McKennitt, Gil Scott-Heron and Valdy.
