Gwendolyn’s Spring Spa & Art Boutique

Sunday, March 22, from 1:00–5:00 PM

At Gwendolyn’s place

7-D Blair Road, in Essex Junction

Gwendolyn Evans, Healer, Artist & Muse

Gwendolyn Evans: loving self, loving others, loving community.

Dear Friends,

I’m celebrating the start of spring with a new idea to share. A Spa and Art Boutique. It’s time to shake off this long, cold winter internally and externally. I’ve been very creative during these cold months and look forward to sharing my artwork with you. Lots of small, whimsical sculptures, tiny hanging inspirations, jewelry and cards. These all make lighthearted gifts for loved ones or yourself.

My hand-crafted spa products will ease this spring transition with scented bath salts for body & spirit, hand and foot scrubs, special herbal steam for face and sinuses, as well as herbal teas to sooth and calm jangled nerves.

In addition, my line of gemstone essences for attuning the energy body will be on sale. I’ll be demonstrating some of these products during the Boutique.

Come enjoy this mini spa, sale on small artwork, a cup of tea and some goodies.

 Bring a friend and receive a certificate to schedule a free energy treatment.  

 

For more information or directions, call or e-mail me.

I look forward to seeing you!

 

Love and blessings,

Gwendolyn

Dear Friends, it’s time for my Holiday Open Studio & Boutique. Once again, I am pleased to share my creativity with you through my art and hand-crafted products. What started as just a way to have friends stop by for some holiday cheer and a chance to show off my art, has grown to more and more friends visiting, and amazing growth in my creative pursuits.

Ask Me Who I Am

Ask Me Who I Am

 

Look at me and know that what you see is yourself, your filter, your ideas and misconceptions

 

To see me you have to look on the inside, with my permission

 

You have to ask questions, be curious, be ready to be surprised

You have to be ready to see the shadows and Light within me, because it’s in you too

 

You have to see that very little separates us

 

Ask me who I am.

Gwendolyn Evans Presents Channeling with Mother Earth
You are cordially invited to an open group channeling session with Mother Earth on the third Thursday of every month at 7 PM. I look forward to bringing Mother Earth’s words to both new and old faces. All are welcome. Bring your questions, open minds and friends. I ask for a donation.

These new open channeling sessions are hosted by volunteers in the greater Burlington area. If you would like to host a session, or would like to attend one, contact me at gwendolyn@lovingself.net or 879-2706.

This month’s session will be on Thursday, May 15, at 7 PM. Our host Raphael Groten lives at 220 Collamer Circle, Shelburne. Directions below.

Raphael will offer a sound meditation for the group before our conversations with Mother Earth. His ability to hold and sound into a space and energy is a wonderful healing experience.

Directions: South on Spear Street past Allen Road. Right on Collamer Circle. 220 is on your left as you follow the first left curve. The house is a gray raised ranch. You may park in the driveway or on the left shoulder of the road before or after the driveway.

Note: Collamer Circle is a horseshoe, so if you are coming from the North and you miss the first right, you can take the second right and come from the other side. It is about a mile south of Allen Road, directly after Morse Drive, and a half mile before Kwiniaska Golf Course.

Cheers for art!

I’m so excited to be Artist in Residence at Artists’ Mediums. In a world that gets busier and busier, and yet more isolating for people, this opportunity feels like a great gift that can connect and refresh those of us who are nourished by art.

I value supporting our local community in whatever ways I can. As an artist I’m deeply appreciative of the support and feedback I get from other artists, arts admirers and from customers. I feel the same when I buy from a local artist, even if it’s just a small thing, a greeting card print of their work, or small painting that fits my budget but carries so much more value in its meaning and connections. I’ve been able to do that through connections with Artists’ Mediums, and receive incredible support, education, feedback and supplies from this great store.

Making time for creativity is therapy to me. If I can’t make time for it, I get a little depressed, a little anxious and sometimes cranky. Equally important to this process is my need to share my artwork. If I only sat in my house, working in my little studio corner and created, that experience would become very empty for me. This is intrinsically connected to my needs for beauty in the world and to share myself with others. I get to connect in a lovely way with this residency. I can’t imagine a better way to connect and a better crew of people to connect with.

I’ve been supporting Artists’ Mediums with my business for years. Theirs is one of the few retail places I feel totally comfortable in going to by myself, and be myself. I can go there without needing to find a sighted friend and find excellent customer service to help me navigate and help me find what I need in the store. I’ve found over the years and in various places that store personnel and customers sometimes can be put off when a blind person enters a store, because of fears about not knowing what to do, or what is expected. It’s a great thing to be able to connect with people and allow them to “see” me and share what I might be needing and offering. In my experience this can only happen in real relationship, over time and experience with real conversation.

 

That’s what I have at Artists’ Mediums. They are like that old TV show “Cheers” for me. “Sometimes you just got to go where everyone knows your name, and they’re always glad you came.” That’s what real community and relationship is.
