We had our first public 'showing' from our Petrolia studio space on July 13th and 14th (2012).  
The annual Art in the Park Petrolia was being held across the street, so we would host our artworks from the studio and save ourselves the booth fee.
This space is a gutted loft above the Petrolia Mercantile and Tea, where founding member,  Karen Watson business resides on the main floor of this historic building.  
We began meeting there in 2009 and our little group of two became four.  We exhibited for about three years together after which LouAnne Sybenga went back to solo exhibits to showcase her own very large body of work. 

The ambience of the space was perfect and as you can see by the pictures below a great space for a street smart studio even without the plumbing and electricity!

Fast forward to 2017 and in the November, Patti acquired a studio space in the Sarnia area which has both electricity and plumbing and conducts Watercolour classes, wet/needlefelting classes as well as creativity classes. Contact  Patti for details.
