I am currently in Ottawa again still working on the expansion of NOA out East. We are also beginning the final stages for planning NOA 2005. We are no longer accepting new applicants for the shows as there are too many applicants and not enough space. Good problem. We will have our final line up established for 2005 by the end of September. We are also on the verge of our mural Grande Finale on October 17th at the Paramount Theatre in Edmonton featuring Sue Foley- Juno award winner, Rachelle Van Zanten and Mo Lefever. Also Lewis Lavoie and other artists from the group will be there to talk about the mural and what we have on the horizon. Things are looking great for 2005!

I drive home from Ottawa on the 2nd-5th of October.

Well 2005 is upon us - that is the 2005 NOA shows! I am back on line and back at the craziness. We are lining up all the shows and this year we will be national as Ottawa will come into the loop. Its quite exciting to see the growth over the years. We have 90% of the artists returning this year and we also will be adding about another 20 new artists at the end of the month.

I am in Edmonton until Wednesday next week and then i am off to Ottawa and Toronto again for three weeks.All I can say is.... her eis to another crazy beginning of another crazy year!!
