ArtSpring Newsletter November 16, 2020

Dear Friends,

Great big blousy flowers. Dahlias, I’m going to miss them. I picked what will probably be the final bunch yesterday. It is so quiet and chilly now, no birdsong. All I can hear is the distant hum of the ferry, and the rustling of the grasses as the deer saunter past.

Two items I found interesting. A new exhibit in the Canadian Senate and an Indian sweet shop in Vancouver. My Auntie Neera (a close family friend) would make burfi/barfi sometimes. It had the most delicate flavour and often had a micoscopic layer of gold leaf on top. My family is Swedish and I’d never seen anything like it. Delish!!!

Now more than ever, ArtSpring depends on your support, and there are many ways to help. Monthly donations are great, the gift that keeps on giving. How about $25 a month, less than a dollar a day. However you support ArtSpring: giving a one-time donation, arranging a monthly contribution, purchasing a raffle ticket, etc. it all helps make ArtSpring possible. This includes our ability to offer the reduced rental rates that the community enjoys.

With thanks,
