A few days ago, I attended my first Canadian Folk Music Awards Gala held at the beautiful and historic Pantages Theater in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The CFMA recognizes Canada’s outstanding performers, writers and producers of the many diverse forms of folks music. A “folkie” from way back, I thoroughly enjoyed the evening!

I met Avery in the early 80's in Edmonton where we both worked in forestry. As fate would have it, we would both move to Winnipeg in the mid 80's where I worked in the same office as her husband Paul. In the mid 1990s, Paul and Avery moved to their lakeside home on Clearwater Lake, a most beautiful setting and one which I have had the pleasure of visiting and working around on numerous occasions. Avery was also very helpful in setting out a direction for this Blog - what an awful name by the way. That's why I call this "In Focus"!
I am proud to present a small portfolio of four art works by Avery.

Art is about creativity and creativity has no bounds. The medium is important to the artist only in as much as it is his or her chosen method of expression. Back in the sixties, the “coffee house” was a gathering place for artists. It is in this same spirit that I invite you to meet my guest artists.
