Collingwood Arts and Music Festival - Thank You!

Thanks to everyone who came out to see me in Collingwood on the weekend. It was a challenging two days with the heat on Saturday and the rain on Sunday, the cottage traffic, and the six trips back and forth from Guelph with a four year old and Aitana - her five-month belly - squeezed in to the half backseat of my dad's pickup. On Sunday afternoon as we packed it in, my tent wasn't the only one to capsize in the wind and nearly take someone out.

At the same time, I met some warm folks and some wonderful artists. I reconnected with people I'd met at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition and got a chance to talk about everything from Venezuela to Joe Sacco, from fast painting to the Iranian Revolution. And the most surprising of all, I, well, won Best of Show!

Again, thanks everyone, and see you next time! 


  1. That's great news, Ivano! But quite a challenge, as you described it. Was the turn-out very big? How about sales for the artists?
