Meet the Artists: Claude LeBel

October 13th, 2011

 Redefined Wood:  Claude LeBel has been turning wood for approximately five years.  He is an active member of the Valley Woodturners in Ottawa and acts as an assistant instructor for the beginner’s woodturning course offered by the club.

Claude has studied under world-renowned woodturners such as Mike Mahoney and Jimmy Clewes.  Claude is passionate about his hobby and his artistic flare adds to the beauty and uniqueness of his creations.  Form and function are important elements in his designs because he is a believer that not only should his creations be nice to look at, they should be used and enjoyed as well.
With only five years experience at woodturning, Claude considers his newly found passion a “work in progress”. However the beauty and creativity of his pieces would suggest otherwise.
See Claude’s work at the Museum art & craft show this Sunday October 16 from 1-4, or email him for more details. For details on the art show, email me :)

Uniquely Goulbourn: Meet the Artists

October 11th, 2011

Uniquely Goulbourn: Fall Art & Craft Show will be at the Museum this Sunday October 16 from 1-4. The show features artists from the greater Goulbourn area and this fall – the show is bigger than ever! We will have artists showing their work within the Museum’s exhibits; outside on the grounds; and, even our History Centre will be bustling with creativity: our Yap & Yarn knitting circle will be knitting away during the show.
This week I’d like to showcase some of the fabulous artists we have in our community. Sheila Cain Sample is a local artist who also sits on the Museum’s Board of Directors. Sheila curates our art show, and also sets up a display of her own artwork. Sheila works primarily in pencil, but is also known to incorporate other mediums into her work. She is also a fabulous photographer. See Sheila’s work on her blog, her photography blog, her Etsy site, or follow her on Twitter.
The art show will be on display at the Museum from 1-4 this Sunday October 16, 2011, and the Yap & Yarn group will be knitting from 1-3 in the History Centre. We hope you’ll stop by to check out the artwork and knit a few rows with us :)
