I will be attending 'Scattered Seeds' again this year. This is the annual Chrismas Craft Show & Sale that happens at the Red River Exhibition Hall in Winnipeg, Manitoba from October 18 - 20, 2013. This is an excellent opportunity to get your Christmas shopping done early!

 

I will be on hand to sign copies of my latest book 'Prairie and Beyond'. You can find me at my publisher's booth - Turnstone Press.

 

I will be around during the following times:

Friday, October 18 from 10 AM to 2 PM

Saturday, October 19 from 10 AM to 1 PM

Sunday, October 20 from Noon to 1 PM

 

The book 'Prairie and Beyond' was honoured on a few occasions this year.  First it received a 2012 PIA Certificate of Merit in the category 'Art Books' in the 2012 Premier Print Award Competition. Later, it was  nominated for two 2013 Manitoba Book Awards: Best Illustrated Book of the Year and the Mary Scorer Award for Best Book by a Manitoba Publisher.

 

The book was also the inspiration for a traveling print exhibition called 'Prairie and Beyond'. Two exhibitions of large-scale photographic prints (12 and 26 prints each) are traveling throughout Manitoba communities from September 2012 to December 2014. The exhibition was produced by The Manitoba Arts Network.
