Please join Janet and Mitchell at Worldview Studio and Gallery of Fine Art for the first annual National Capital Network of Sculptors 2017 Sculpture Studio Tour. Start your tour at Worldview Studio, pick up a brochure and map of the 12 other Sculpture Studio locations, and fill in a ballot for a chance to win a unique sculptural piece. If you've ever wondered how a bronze sculpture is created - Mitchell will be demonstrating all the steps involved in the process.

Worldview Studio will be featuring a large selection of sculpture in both Bronze and Stone. The sculptures, primarily figurative, express the intricate nature and complexities of human relationships. Dance and opera themes figure prominently in Janet’s works, but she is presently working on a series based on the beautiful dance of the whale.

If paintings are of more interest to you, they will also be showing their warm and inviting paintings of boats, canoes, kayaks, beautiful Canadian landscapes and the lakes and oceans. As our winter draws to a close, you will enjoy the inviting Summer and Fall landscapes reminding us that Spring weather is almost here.
