SCUGOG: Good coffee, good music, and some of North Durham’s best art can all be found at the Piano Cafe, during the Port Perry Artists’ Association’s (PPAA) brand-new exhibit.
Located at 217 Queen St. in Port Perry, the Piano Cafe will play host to the work of 15 local artists, and include a range of representational and abstract pastels, water colours, oil paintings and acrylics.
The Standard sat down with PPAA President Karen Fox to learn more.
“The Piano Cafe is the perfect venue for us to display our work - it’s well attended by both Scugog’s tourists, and the local crowds,” said Ms. Fox. “I’d like to personally invite anyone who loves good food, good coffee and good art to stop in!”
The Piano Cafe exhibit is a new project for the PPAA, brought about by the relationship between Christy Stone-Curry, owner of the popular coffee house, and grandmother Ruth Stone - one of the founding members of the PPAA.
“We have artists of all skill levels and affinities, but we would love to bring some new and younger members into the fold,” said Ms. Fox. “Artists and dabblers from across Durham Region are welcome to take advantage of what the group has to offer!”
For more information, readers are encouraged to contact Karen Fox via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, visit the PPAA on-line at ppaaart.blogspot.ca, or stop by one of the group’s meetings - held every Tuesday, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., upstairs at Vos’ Independent, located at 1893 Scugog St.
