Art Studio Tours
It has become synonymous with the South Osborne neighbourhood: Mother's Day weekend means that it is time for a South Osborne Art Studio Tour, hosted by the members of that illustrious group of nine (G9) who make up the South Osborne Arts Group. Walk the streets under a canopy of emerging green, stopping in at art studios for emotional and spiritual sustenance, and when necessary, dip into one of many local cafes or restaurants to fuel your journey the rest of the way. Get up close and personal with the art in your neighbourhood, in your city. It's time to have a conversation about art. May 13th and 14th, noon to 5 pm.

The studio tours were once again a fabulous success. Close to one hundred people braved the -30 degree windchill on Sunday alone, to come and look at and talk about art. Several people even left with some art under their arms. Each tour brings out new people that haven't been out before, as more people are aware of it and begin to make it a priority on their fall calendar. Thanks to everyone who came out, those who thought of coming out, and those who saw the brochure and didn't immediately throw it out. The next tour will happen on Mother's Day weekend, May 9th and 10th, 2015.

"It was five months ago today that we left home, and thinking about being home is a strange thing. There are no salty beaches there, no ruins. No temples and no sites. There are no cows wandering the streets and no children working in the stores and calling out your name. There are no beggars waiting for you outside of restaurants and churches, waiting so that they can show you their affliction or deformity in the hopes that you will take pity on them and give them money. There are no two thousand year old buildings or two thousand year old carvings as large as a city block. There are almost 40 times as many people living in Cairo, and there are more people on the street out front than in all of Winnipeg. There are no pharaohs and no kings, no elephants and no tigers. There are no thirty degree days in December.
The extraordinary continues to be revealed to us relentlessly, and there are days here when it seems impossible that any of this is happening, and it seems impossible that one day we will be back at home, going back to school and work, back to grocery shopping and meal preparation, summer and winter, friends and family. I wonder if we will be able to grasp the extraordinary in everything we do and see and have."
