To our dedicated subscribers,
Summer has finally arrived! While out and about be sure to stop and reflect every once in a while on how decorative arts are incorporated into your summer lifestyle. Do you see garden art? Fancy BBQ shears? Fence designs? Sculptures? Wall designs? Many of these artistic displays go unnoticed but can contribute to beautiful photographs and long-lasting memories.
This season's newsletter will provide you with a roundup of CSDA/CCAD announcements, a new artist spotlight featuring textile artist Destiny Seymour, a list of Canadian exhibitions (including the very apropos Sidney Kelsie's "Right in Your Own Backyard), and some summer shopping, reading, watching, and listening content to keep you thinking about the decorative arts throughout the summer. We've also included highlights to celebrate 2022 as the Year of Glass as well as June as Indigenous History Month.
We hope you all have an enjoyable summer. With best wishes,
