What a Show!


Copy of DSC_0004

Our first big fall show at the Old Barn Gallery on September 29 was a great success! We had a terrific turnout on a glorious fall day and raised several hundred dollars for Arts and Health Antigonish. It gave us at Aphrodite a perfect opportunity to showcase our new fall fashions beautifully modelled by staff members Laura Donnachie, Mary Connoly and Joan MacDonald. Guest models were Cori MacInnis, Linda Benoit, Helene Amiable, Virginia Scruggs and Patricia Gaines. Jean Pearcey took all of the lovely photos. PS. We are proving that age has no limits. In the picture above one is over 80 years old, one is over 70, three are over 60, two are in their late 50s, one is almost 30 and one is under 25. Can you figure it out?  🙂

This was the occasion we chose to launch our new collection of Peter Bauer jewellery that is now prominently featured in our jewellery gallery. If you see an outift or an item you might be interested in purchasing just give us a call and we can give you details over the phone or by email. We also ship worldwide. Looking forward to seeing you at Aphrodite in the near future!

We have been managing fittings with our models all week – and the outfits we are planning for you are simply outstanding! Problem is the models want to buy the outfits they are wearing.  You’ll see why on Sunday.

Our staff comprise three of the eight models – they are Laura Donnachie, Mary Connolly and Joan MacDonald. Cori MacInnis is coming back to make our clothes look good and  this year we have a special treat with models from our local community and abroad. They are Patricia Gaines and  Virginia Scruggs who live part time in East Tracadie along with Linda Benoit from Pomquet and Helene Amiable, longtime friend of Carol Rivoire who has been in Pomquet on an extended stay from her home in Paris, France.  We have even outfitted Carol for the occasion. Jean Pearcey will be there to photograph the event. Local restaurants are donating trays of sweets for our afternoon tea. They are Gabrieau’s Bistro, The Brownstone, The Tall and Small, Meyers Tea Room, Dreamcatchers and Little Christo’s. Many thanks to everyone who are donating to the cause. The Arts Health Antigonish (AHA!) will be the recipients of our fundraising event who will use the money to further their community work of healing through the arts. We all benefit!

Please don’t miss this wonderful event to cheer everyone on and support your community at the Old Barn Gallery in Pomquet. There will be plenty of seating for everyone and an opportunity to have tea with friends and feast your eyes on some fabulous fashions brought to you by Aphrodite Art & Fashion. There will be door prizes and other prizes as well.
