The night started with Anahata Acro dropping by at the beginning of the night to entertain our artists with a pop-up acro yoga performance. After that the Art Crawl crowds descended. Special thanks to Charles from The Yoga Company for opening up his yoga studio to the visiting artists.

I have my artwork up through out the building and Sarah Van Pelt has a fantastic setup showcasing her miniature dioramas, which just came down from the their show at the St. Thomas-Elgin Art Centre. On the first floor, Sherri Van Dixhoorn has a display of her still lifes, created using coloured pencils .
