Kick-ass painter, James Nye, is in the middle of an open house this weekend.  Second half is today, Sunday, 1-5pm, 8 Water Street, Kitchener.  Check it out, buy some art.

Get on down to 8 Water Street today.  Street parking and lots of good eats in the neighbourhood (Little Bean and McCabe’s).

Happy making,
