The New Art Festival takes place each summer on a weekend in June, at Central Park in the Glebe neighbourhood. A multitude of artists come from around the province for the weekend and set up for prospective buyers. Looking at the business card of one of the artists and instantly recognizing the road name on the address, I chatted with her. She happens to live in the same area near where I grew up, in the countryside outside of Georgetown, so we talked about Halton Hills and how much it's changed.
This year it was fair weather for the occasion.
I noticed a good many dogs during my visit. This one belonged to one of the artists.
This was a Scottie-Westie mix named Murphy, who quickly got distracted by the presence of another dog.
The collie caught my attention. One of our dogs when I was growing up was a collie, so I've always had a fondness for them.
While this one seemed a bit suspicious of me.
I went up out of one section of the park and looked back.
Across the roadway there were more artists. They were lined around the edge of Patterson Creek, an inlet of the Rideau Canal that ventures into the Glebe for a few hundred metres.
More of the hounds.
I leave off with this view of things from Bank Street.
