Come judge for yourself, enjoy live music, sweet creations inspired by the art exhibited and vote for your favourites.
'Eye of the Beholder'
"My passion for life inspires my photography, nurtures the artist within, and connects spirits in a shared vision. Ultimately for me, this interconnectedness awakens the presence of the transcendent and evokes greater life possibilities. Having engaged in the caring and healing of the human spirit for most of my life, I am currently more passionate than ever to discover the transforming connections between photography, art, spirituality and healing." ManChoi Chow

New pieces from ManChoi Chow
The first bloom is always the sweetest. Can't beat the rugged rugosa rose, bred for all climate zones in Canada, showing off its beauty and subtle musky fragrance.
Spring is an especially wondrous time to observe and be surprised by creatures in our backyards, literally, as I caught this chickadee hunting for nesting materials.
Some questions in life are beyond adequate answers...but are they still worth asking?
Seagulls agree that taking time to drink in the serene wonder at Deerhurst Lake (Huntsville, ON) is a perfect way to spend an afternoon in early spring.
While attending a conference at Deerhurst Resort (Huntsville, ON), I took in the contemplative mood of the melting ice on Deerhurst Lake, framed by nature's slow and deliberate re-awakening.
Back in April, it was well worth the 20 minute trek over ice and mud to reach Ragged Falls, just outside of Huntsville, in beautiful cottage country north of Toronto. Raging currents from the melting snow was wondrous to watch and hear.
One of several pieces of new work in this exhibition, May 20, 2-4pm Opening Reception
Grateful to a generous donor who makes it possible to have "Natural Beauty" (sunset at Jordan Harbourside, Niagara) hanging in the Provincial Office, Ontario-Kentucky Province of the Resurrectionists in Waterloo, ON, Canada.

With strength, grace and thriving by the river side...a symbol of the amazing spirit of life, within and all around us. Spring opens my eyes to the wonderment of life re-emerging after winter's slumber.
