The New Tecumseth and Area Arts Council
launches a new speaker series coming this fall. 

The first evening will be September 22, at the Lions Club Hall, 60 Boyne Street in Alliston at 7:30 pm. 

The speaker will be Don Stuart, founder of the weaving, jewellery and metals programs at Georgian College.  A member of the Order of Canada, his effect on Canada's arts and crafts industry has been profound and lasting.  In the late 1960s he travelled to Baffin Island where he founded Pangnirtung Weaving Studio, the largest of its kind in the country and one of the region's main sources of employment. An eloquent spokesman for the crafts community, he is a master goldsmith and artist in his own right.  His unique designs, handcrafted from precious stones and metals combined with other materials like wood and stainless steel are sought after in Canada and abroad.

All are welcome, with admission of $10 ($8.00 for Arts Council members).  

Proceeds will be used for the Arts Council's scholarships and the Festival of the Arts.
