Simply Warehouse Art Show opens this Friday, June 13, with a reception from 5 to 9 p.m. at the warehouse, 1877 Field Road in Wilson Creek. Join artists Kasia Krolikowska, Carol La Fave, Charly Mithrush and Donna Stewart in viewing a wide variety of colourful art. The show continues from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, but it’s best to purchase your art on Friday evening since 10 per cent of proceeds go to benefit the SPCA.

Dharmakasa is a duet consisting of Andrew Kim (multi-instrumentalist and sitar player) and Alcvin Ramos (grand master of the Japanese shakuhachi zen flute and multi-instrumentalist).
