Da Artisti Studio & Gallery gears up for holiday season

Da Artisti Studio and Gallery features the works of different local artists working in different medium. Let me rephrase that: EVERYTHING is locally made!

The gallery showcases stained glass by Diana Atkinson, handblown glass jewelry by Janet Evans and Barbara Ham, exquisite beadwork by Nathalie Brunelle, Ron Matton metal works, sculptural and functional ceramics by Colette Beardall and Helene Charbonneau’s acrylic paintings on slate.

The gallery also has Lionel Bedard, Ron Lacroix and Serge & Sheila’s fine wood creations, Stan Morrow’s fun wine gift boxes, Caughn’t Quilts beautifully made quilts, as well their own brand of artisan soaps and candles, respectively made by Sylvie Morin and Wicked Wix. You will also find books written by local authors and handmade greeting cards.

Da Artisti carries an extensive variety of Deborah Lyall’s original fibre art creations as well as Gallery Bees which she crafts exclusively for them.

Da Artisti is also a fused glass studio. You will find one-of-a-kind fused glass items made by Martine Marceau and Gallery owner Wendy Canci.

The studio is getting ready for holiday shopping. Every year they make it a point to carry works that will fit in your holiday budget so mark your calendars:

- Nov 18 to 20: Shopping extravaganza! Drop by to meet Deborah Lyall who will be at the Gallery all weekend. Deborah will have her creations from handbags, scarves, skirts, loungewear, gallery bees and more. Each piece makes its own statement using unique and colourful graphics.

- Dec 3: Da Artisti will be part of the Cumberland Christmas Market. Drop by to meet local artists and get that special gift for that special someone. Harpist Ian Hepburn, will be visiting for a few hours to entertain their customers.

The quality of the artwork cannot be overstated. You would have to travel to the Byward Market in Ottawa or further afield to find the same quality of work as you will find at Da Artisti Studio and Gallery.

Da Artisti is open Wednesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. They are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. You can visit their website at or their Facebook page at
