The Kawartha Eclectics
Sandi McNeil and Janet McDougall dedicate themselves to the pursuit of learning, creating, and cultivating an interest in their chosen mediums of basketry, wire sculpture, pottery and glass mosaics.
Sandi McNeil is a natural fibre artist who works extensively with hand gathered materials that grow in and around the Kawartha Lakes, near her Notably Natural Studio on the shore of Buckhorn Lake, Ontario. Her work reflects the harmony between form and function. Known primarily for her traditional and non-traditional basketry, Sandi also makes willow figures, garden furnishings and wire sculptures.
Janet McDougall expresses her creative spirit through a variety of media. Although pottery is her primary medium, she has created and exhibited work in stone, glass mosaic, hand-made cast paper and linocut prints. She has an innate appreciation for the natural beauty of her environment and her art masterfully makes use of texture, colour, light and space.
In addition to the Lakefield Farmers' Market, The Kawartha Eclectics can also be found at Nichol's Cove Studio (705-738-3338 -firstname.lastname@example.org) and at The Station Gallery in Fenelon Falls (http://fenelonstationgallery.
