A serendipitous meeting between members of the Glacier Grannies and the daughter of 97-year-old artist Joyce Jay (aka Jake) has developed into a wonderful win/win relationship.
This amazing Comox resident has been painting, carving, and making felted art pieces throughout her life.
Jake’s active participation has inspired a group of Glacier Grannies who have been meeting weekly for two years to create an array of felted products and art work that will appeal to all ages and budgets.
The public is invited to view an exhibition of felted wall hangings and whimsical animals until the end of June at Blue Moon Winery.
The winery at 4905 Darcy Road, Courtenay is open from noon to 5 p.m. every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in June.
Meet the artists, enjoy wine tasting, appetizers, and felting demonstration on Sunday, June 21 from 1-4 p.m.
All proceeds from the sale of the art support the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation.
