On May 23 at 7:30 Sharyn Seibert presents an artist talk at Atmosphere Cafe (24 Carden St., across from City Hall in Guelph). This show is a culmination of two years of painting at the Yorklands site through wind, rain, sleet and snow. She would often stay until she couldn’t feel her hands and feet!
Yorklands Green Hub is a non-profit organization that wishes to purchase 70 acres of a 1,000 acre parcel that is going up for sale by the Ontario Government in the next year. The property is the former jail lands (Ontario Correctional Centre). The beautiful grounds, modeled on Central Park in New York, could be bulldozed to make way for development. They wish to save this 70 acre parcel for future generations and create an ecology park.
Part of the sales from Sharyn’s show will be donated to Yorklsnds Green Hub.
