News Oct 30, 2009 Ancaster News

The Dundas arts community is preparing to roll out the red carpet to visitors. The annual Arts Dundas Weekend allows residents to support arts in historic Dundas during a fun-filled four-day celebration, Nov. 5-8. There are a myriad of activities planned to entertain art lovers of all ages.

The Dundas Valley School of Art presents its annual open house and estate sale, Oct 26 to Nov. 8. Discover original collectables, including great art, rare books, antiques and more.

During the weekend, take a walk down King Street between Cross and Sydenham Streets to view a collaborative effort between Carnegie Gallery member artists and poems by the Tower Poetry Society.

Dundas Little Theatre presents Still Life by Noel Coward and The Lunch Hour by John Mortimer, Nov. 5-7. The two one-act plays focus on relationships. Still Life follows three budding romances at a British Railway station while The Lunch Hour is a clandestine rendezvous gone wrong.

Throughout the weekend, the Potter’s Guild of Hamilton and Region hosts its annual fall sale at the community centre. This year’s featured artist is Mieke Zawada.

An opening reception is planned for Nov. 6 from 7-9:30 p. m. for the Carnegie Gallery’s presentation of a curated exhibition titled Potters and Painters. Many potters and painters are good friends, admirers and collectors of each other’s work. Potters and Painters celebrates these friendships. View the result of what happens when painters start with their colleagues’ clay creations as inspiration. The exhibition continues until Nov. 29.

On Friday, Nov. 6 the Dundas Museum & Archives hosts a book launch for Healing and Healers in the Dundas Valley by Dr. Edward Smith. From the heights above to the Desjardins Canal below, the Valley Town is rich in its stories of healing and healers, history which will surprise those who know Dundas well and enrich those who are visitors.

On Saturday from noon to 3 p. m., at 20-minute intervals, visitors are invited to take a free ride around town. An HSR trolley will shuttle passengers from the Carnegie Gallery to the Potter’s Guild sale and the museum.

Special events to celebrate the arts are also planned at Beads of Colour, the Dundas Branch of the Hamilton Public Library, Angelas Papercrafts, Kool Klay Kafé and Seekers Quest Tarot Studio.
