The 38th Annual Cloyne Showcase was held last weekend at North Addington Education Centre, highlighting many local and regional talented artisans. The show covers many artistic mediums including chainsaw carving, stained glass, fabric, jewellery, photography, painting, spa products and more.  Photographer Melissa Randle, who teaches science at North Addington, has been participating in the show for the last 3 years. “This is a great opportunity to display art, interact with the community and support our school. It’s also nice to have so many of the local Ambient Woods Creative Collective [Artisans from Plevna and Area] exhibiting at this show.”

Ten percent of artist sales are collected by the North Addington Guild, from which a donation is made to the Arts Programs at North Addington. Also participating at Showcase was the Mazinaw Swim Program, who ran the bake table and canteen. This year’s Showcase was organised by Ted and Nancy Sparling with a core group of volunteers.  Events like Showcase are invaluable to the youth programs in our community, thank you to everyone who attended.
