Each week we have been striving to include works from local artists. By local we mean artists who either called Durham Region home, currently live here, or grew up here. Some examples include John Landers, Barry Smylie, Isabel McLaughlin and Linda Selbie Ward. This week, we include Jeff Morrison. You can learn more about Jeff Morrison by visiting his website http://www.jeffmorrisonart.com
Last week we had another tie. This is an unexpected hurdle for us with this project, but it is part of the fun as well. The tied-for-second-place images will be put in our Window Wednesdays album on Facebook (early in the day on Wednesday) and you can go there to vote in the tie breaker.
