Meet the Artists: Claude LeBel

May 16th, 2012

Claude LeBel has been turning wood for over six years.  He is an active member of the Valley Woodturners in Ottawa and has acted as an assistant instructor for the beginner’s woodturning course offered by the club.

Having studied under world-renowned woodturners such as Mike Mahoney and Jimmy Clewes, Claude is passionate about his hobby.  His artistic flare adds to the beauty and uniqueness of his creations. Form and function are important elements in his designs. He believes that not only should his creations be nice to look at, they should be used and enjoyed as well.

With just over six years experience, Claude considers his passion for woodturning a “work in progress”. However the beauty and creativity of his pieces would suggest otherwise.

 You can find Claude’s work at Uniquely Goulbourn: Spring Art Show & Sale on Sunday May 27, 2012, from 1-4. 

For more information about Custom Woodturning by Claude LeBel, email him here.

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 :)
