SUNDAY JUNE 7th at 3:00pm Ontario Time rescheduled due to extreme heat Part of the "Drinking Alone" Trailer Series Join Allison as she sings in the trailer, tells you how she really feels and drinks one beer. FREE !!! Streaming live from Tune in! Hello Friends - due to extreme heat conditions in the trailer (89 F, 31.6 C currently) I've decided to re-book myself for a much more temperate Sunday afternoon (calling for 23 C, 73.4 F), same time, same Face Place. When I booked myself for this a few weeks ago I didn't think we'd be looking at temps in the plus 30 (90) zone in early June here in deep Ontario south... so I won't hit you during 'work from home' hours, so bring your phones and i-pads out to your patios Sunday afternoon for all originals and me telling you the real stories behind each song!! Aiming for over 100 views to be eligible for SOCAN's "Encore" program for online performances!

Carolyn Hardy Surrealist Artist Art Show

Sissy & Roche Fine Art, 9-313 Main St. E. , Kingsville, Ontario

I'll be playing some music as Carolyn opens an amazing collection of art with Magic as the theme! Join us for Carolyn Hardy’s 7th solo exhibit, called MAGIC. Carolyn is an Essex County surrealist artist. She is an award winner with over 300 original paintings already sold. The opening reception celebration is at Sissy & Roché Fine Arts on Thursday, March 12, 2020, starting at 7 pm with snacks and live music.

All Carolyn’s paintings are originals and there are no re-productions. Her stream of consciousness style contains a fluid technique that produces many colourful, swirling pieces in acrylic. Carolyn is also a published author and poet. She is also the creator of the ever evolving Merlis’ Art Wall in the Kingsville core. This is your chance to own an original painting... and be part of the MAGIC.
