“Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.” ~RUMI
For those of you who we know well and to the new artists participating this year, a heartfelt thanks on behalf of myself and the HBHAS. You remind us of what is possible.
Your work makes the art exhibition beautiful and a beloved community event for the Cultural Centre. We’ve had many visitors this year and so many wonderful compliments. You help us escape, if only for a moment, to different lands through your creative expression “Celebrating Freedom”.
Thank you for traveling to Halton Hills and sharing your positive vibe, talents and creative spirit. It was a magical evening.
Judy Daley, the curator of the Culture Centre, thank you for your input and assistance. We appreciate all the fine detail and effort that happened behind the scenes. We had fun.
To all the artists remember what Langston Huges said, “An artist must be free to choose what he does, certainly, but he must also never be afraid to do what he might choose.” ~ Langston Huges

Sybil, thank you for making a difference. We admire, adore and treasure you. Your devotion to the arts, educating and promoting creativity in the community is inspiring. See you at next year’s annual family BBQ.
It’s hard to believe for two magical year’s I’ve shared this space with other artists.
Your business understands how diversity can unlock growth and innovation for inclusion and belonging. With your vision, we can bring hope and inspiration to many more people with a variety of exciting workshops.
The more we innovate, the more we can inspire and allow others to do the same.

Had a great time meeting artist Ian Grant on the Danforth, Areej Art Gallery, this past weekend. His solo exhibit, “The Journey” is more than a collection of photographs. His inspirations come from traveling the world. Some images cheeky and others uniquely soulful where the images transcend those influences.
Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still. ~ Dorothea Lange
Make this your summer destination to drop in and discover something new and exciting!!! A dynamic opportunity to learn more about the artists and their body of work. All stunning and unique.
Research suggests spending time in a natural setting is good for your mental health. A family picnic is great family time with the kids. It’s also a wonderful tradition to strengthen ties with family and friends too.
Coming soon the Joshua Creek Heritage Art Center is celebrating its 10th Anniversary with a family picnic. I’ll be there with my rainbow set of harps to provide an opportunity for anyone interested to have an experience playing the harp.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to play the harp? Curious about this ancient musical instrument? Then you’re in for a treat.
Recreational harp music making is healthy and inclusive. It’s based on music activities that bring the community together. Come see for yourself at the JCHAC Family Picnic Sunday, June 10th, 2018. It’s the perfect opportunity to come out take part and have fun.
Excited to share!!! Date: Wednesday, June 13, 2018 – Time: 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM

Surrender to the timeless wisdom of your higher self and join us next month at the Joshua Creek Heritage Art Centre for another peaceful Harping for Wellness Workshop.
Harping for Wellness at Joshua Creek Heritage Art Centre last night was another great success. It’s a fun and safe learning environment for everyone.
So grateful for this creative space where we gather to inspire each other, learn something new and authentically connect with each other. Participating brings us into relationship with like-minded people who stimulate our thinking.
