Where the River Flows

Marmora Friends of the Library and River & Main Theatre Company present "Where the River Flows," a bittersweet comedy by Peter Paylor. This one-man show features Bill Petch as syndicated columnist Keaton Lowry. Transplanted from the city to a cabin by the river, Lowry writes about everything he sees, while obsessing over his obstructed river view. But just like the river, life doesn't always reveal what's coming around the bend. Lowry learns there are more important things to worry about than a view from a window. "Canadian storytelling at its finest in the tradition of Stephen Leacock and Stuart Maclean”--InQuinte Free admission.

TUESDAY WORKSHOP WITH RACHEL HARBOUR

Acrylic: Cloisonné Style Animals Today marks the last of our Tuesday workshops before we break for the summer. Let's prepare for the good weather and time outside with a bold, colourful painting in a cloisonné style. Using heavy black outlines to encase bold, colourful patterns, we will paint simple animal compositions which will look completely at home in any sunny corner of a house...or patio!
