The artists at the Williams Mill are not part of a co-operative, but they still work together to get things done! The Mill Artists Group, known as MAG, has a new chair person for 2011 – award-winning book illustrator Karen Reczuch. (To see Karen's amazing list of books , click here). Sculptor Gabrielle Fischer Horvath is the new vice-chair, and painter Gord Stuart , glass blower Julia Hillyer, and wood carver Bryan Turner have generously volunteered to serve as building reps. Kudos to them all!
Congratulations are due to watercolour artist Gord Stuart. His watercolour painting “Winter Magic “ is this year’s image on the City of Brampton Christmas Card. Beautifully framed, this full sheet watercolor painting, (which was also juried into the 2010 John Sommer’s Annual Juried Show) is now for sale in his Williams Mill studio.
