Mary Allen Studio Tour
Friday September 28th 7pm - 9pm
272 Herbert Street, Waterloo (Laura’s house)
In 1989, Margaret Rowell of the Historical Society began the Mary-Allen Studio Tour. She hosted a walking tour through the historic neighbourhoods while focusing on all the artistic people living in the area. Around the same time, Yvonne and Ray Stanton, residents of Allen Street, proposed that the neighborhood host a studio tour. Resident Artists, Eldon Leis and Jaquelyn Lumsden who were neighbors across Herbert St. at Allen, enthusiastically supported the idea since they both held homesales pf paintings, Bonsai trees, and pottery respectively. The tour now includes homes in Uptown Avondale and Menno neighborhoods as well as homes in Belmot Village, yet the goal remains the same. The Mary Allen Studio Tour encourages neighbours to get to know the talented artists living and working within the area!
Check out the map of the tour to see all the stops at the galleries along the way!
Endangered Vision Collection Fundraiser
Launch Party - October 18-19
Insight Eye Care Fall Frame Show
49 Albert Street Waterloo
What could be better than partnering with one of Munzy’s favourite local businesses for a great cause?
When Insight Eye Care moved into their new space on Albert St in Uptown Waterloo, they noticed that they had a lot of empty white walls. Hoping to work with a local artist to help with their bare wall woes, Insight commissioned Munzy to create 6 quirky bespectacled animals.
So what is this fundraiser all about? Our friends at Insight, known in the community for their advocacy and charitable work, are excited to share their commissioned collection for a cause and are the driving force behind our Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society fundraiser.
Half the proceeds of any prints or greeting card sets from this adorable collection will be donated to support CPAWS. (Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society)
This fundraiser kicks off on October 18th where the original paintings will be on display at Insight Eye Care’s annual Fall Frame Showcase.
