In conjunction with Ontario Culture Days (Sept 24-Oct24), the Art Powered Pop-Up hosted by Lory MacDonald (Artfest Ontario, Magic of Children in the Arts) on her 1.5 acres of beautiful gardens, with art studios and groomed lawns in the quaint hamlet of Nottawa. The event featured a variety of curated art and craft market booths, live music, art workshops, children’s activities, and gourmet food. Admission was free with donations gratefully accepted, and the event followed COVID safety protocols. Thanks, Lory, organizers, artists, and guests, for making this a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.
