658 King Street West
In keeping with my own beliefs I could not be more thrilled to announce that Hatter’s Bay Country Market has accepted and will display (for sale) my Wolfe Island Series of paintings.
Hatter’s Bay is a local store. What I mean by this is that it carries local products. Wonderful candles from a local bee keeper, maple from a local farm, wonderful hand made dog biscuits, made from local products, locally produced and sourced food and of course, local artists work.
It is a gorgeous and unique business where you can stop by as a tourist just to look around, but I am sure that you will find more than one thing that you will want to pick up for dinner. I also suggest that you pick up a lemon tart which is a fantastic combination of shortbread and lemon. To die for!
The store is in beautiful and historic Portsmouth Village (now a part of Kingston). The setting for the Convict Lover which is the story that was written when the writer Merilyn Simonds purchased a home in the village and found a series of letters written by a convict from Kingston Penitentiary and a young girl who grew up in the home many years ago. If you have not read this, I suggest that you get a copy. It is an amazingly well researched historical fiction.
I hope you will all pop by Hatter’s Bay and don’t forget to bring your appetite not just for art, but for wonderful local food! Your dog wants a treat too! I know I am right, because dogs love Laurie’s dog treats!
DATE OF INSTALLATION: To be announced
