"A Roundabout Way" is the the exploration of new terrain through the viewfinder. All senses are keen and aware, searching for the perfect composition, the ideal form, one with light and shadow, depth and contrast. Whether created or captured, through both awareness and honed skills, images and forms alike are conceived, altered, and defined… to gain the stamp of the maker.

Ultimately, "A Roundabout Way" is the discovery and creation of new images and forms; the planting, tending, and growth of these simple beginnings into photographs and clay pieces with warming qualities… quiet and confident.

2. Come out and partake in the Unveiling of our Mural Art Project, Our Legacy of Agriculture Saturday, September 12 @ 11:00 am, Alliston Feed Service, 180 Albert Street West, Alliston ON

This mural project was the result of a design concept developed using actual historical photos from this community. It speaks directly to the role and importance of agriculture in this community and is a legacy to agriculture as a driving force in the economy and growth of South Simcoe.
The South Simcoe Arts Council is pleased to have had the opportunity of collaborating with our major sponsor Honda of Canada Manufacturing. Alliston Feed Services initiated the mural project in recognition of its 20 year contribution to agriculture in our community. Peter approached the Arts Council and together we worked on this opportunity for offering emerging artists and students a chance to leave a lasting impression in the community – bringing Arts to All.
We thank the following sponsors for their contribution and recognition of the importance of this legacy
