Owl Ridge Sessions

We’ve had an absolute pleasure hosting Kenton Loewen on residency from Vancouver, plus a few other guests over the last four weeks. Being able to provide space for creative people to connect, concentrate and collaborate is something we really enjoy doing. So when Roey Shemesh and Howard Goldbach had a chance to spend a weekend with Kenton jamming, we were super impressed to see what they could produce in a limited time.
The video below dubbed Owl Ridge Sessions, is a musical journey of three men that braved the elements and black fly season to be inspired by their surroundings during this short stay.
If you’re interested in hearing more from these three
Big love and best wishes to the three of you from ORA!

Artistic Hootananny & Harvest Picnic

It was a beautiful weekend to get together with family, friends and neighbours over the love of local food and art. The Art Barn displayed a bounty of locally grown produce, eye-catching art by Joey Bruni, Dianne Eastman, Ken Fraser, Roy Mitchell, Freddie Towe, Don Wilson, Colleen Zetaruk and beautiful poetry by Suzanne Ballantyne.
We couldn’t have asked for better weather as the sun went down and The Cocoon Project lit up Saturday night. Gathering around the bonfire as folks helped welcome the first weekend of fall under a brilliant full moon, was a wonderful warm up to Sunday’s Harvest Picnic. There was no shortage of local goodness to indulge in and surprise visitors to welcome.
