Artist James Kerr at the Walkerville Artist Coop Friday, August 21st

Posted August 11, 2015 @ 10:27AM

Walkerville Artists’ Co-op presents ‘Rust Never Sleeps’, an original showcase by Chatham-Kent artist James Kerr. Grand opening for the show is Friday August 21, 5:30 – 9 p.m.

Kerr uses bones from animals around the quarry where he works and lives near. “Some of the animals, in life had been a familiar sight. The coyote population supplies me with bones and bits to use,” says Kerr, “sometimes, I go directly to their den or killing floor to retrieve materials. Old heavy machinery parts and antique findings are incorporated as well…anything that rusts nicely.”

Kerr states, “Since I was young, I’ve seen faces and personalities in things. I find myself wondering what other uses or lives objects could have.” James Kerr’s creative process flows quite naturally, much the same as in his landscaping. “The materials speak to me and I work with them until something unexpected happens. My sculpture allows me to bring new life to old cast offs and discarded bones.” says Kerr.

Walkerville Artists’ Co-op is an artist run gallery and shop in the heart of Old Walkerville, which hosts over 35 artists. They also run a Visiting Artist Program, which James Kerr is a part. The gallery can be found at 1974 Wyandotte Street East, hours are Tuesday – Saturday 10-6 and Sunday 12-4.

Drop in to see this very original showcase of James Kerr’s ‘Rust Never Sleeps’ in its limited engagement from August 21-26.

Antonino's Pays for A's promotion Exceeds expectations! - extended one more day!

Posted July 6, 2015 @ 5:14PM

Antonino's Pays for A's promotion exceeds expectations

Late last month Antonino's Original Pizza rewarded elementary school children, for achieving A grades on their report cards, with a free slice of their award-winning pizza. The promotion, which attracted 560 youth, was held at their flagship store in South Windsor and at their second location in Tecumseh.
“My parents always encouraged me to work hard, get a good education and strive for good grades, " said Joe Ciaravino, owner of Antonino’s. "We're honoured to have had an opportunity to recognize the outstanding achievements of area youth, and I was thrilled to have personally witnessed how many of our students excelled this year. We must encourage our youth to shine in all that they do."

On Monday July 27, for one day only, Antonino's will extend the promotion to include high school and elementary students who missed the first promotion. The offer is valid to students who have achieved at least one A grade, 80% or higher, on their current report card, and is limited to one Big Slice per student.

Antonino’s owner, Joe Ciaravino, sums up his reasons for this promotion: “My parents grew up poor farmers in Sicily.

This is our way of paying them back by rewarding academic achievement.”

Matthew House Benefit Concert - TONIGHT!

Posted June 19, 2015 @ 11:31AM


A lot of Windsor’s rich heritage flies just below the radar of a lot of her residents.  In this town, there is a place called Matthew House that is a charity well worth supporting.  When people come to this country applying for entry with refugee status, they have fled persecution with not much more than the clothes on their backs.  Matthew House in Windsor is a place where they can get a start.
Matthew House has a number of locations in Canada but each locality has a local board and relies on donations to stay afloat.  When things are simply business as usual it’s hard for a low visibility charity to make operating budgets work, but what happens when major capital outlays are needed for renovations and the like?  This is the situation this year for the location in Windsor.
Something else that has escaped a lot of notice is the 30 plus year history Windsor has as a focal point for independent Canadian Christian contemporary music.  We saw Skylight Records become the cutting edge in the 70’s just prior to the emergence of Toronto’s Daniel Band and 100 Huntley’s Stacy.  At the time, 3 Christian labels existed, all with major label connections. In contrast, Skylight stayed the course as an independent, signing Preflyte, Robert Johnson, and sponsoring the first CCM (Contemporary Christian Music) songwriting contest. Skylight had some financial problems and JLT Records stepped in to fill the void signing notable Windsor acts with a more general approach.  The Palazzolo/Lambrick driven Tanzen, Legion, Danter (ex Teaze) and the Jael Band all had product released on this label.

On June 19th 2015, Matthew House and a band of musical CCM renegades are teaming up to solve some problems.  A benefit concert is being held at Banwell Community Church.  There is free admission and the line-up is absolutely fantastic representing every conceivable contemporary style of music from Jazz to instru-METAL Rock.  You will be able to catch what is happening now with Jael Band, 2Fish, Brianne Danter, Salt of the Chief Cornerstone, Ty Sharron, United Hearts and at least 4 others confirmed at this point.  Banwell Community is located at 2400 Banwell Rd. and concert will start at 7:00 pm. Come prepared to make a donation.  We will pass the hat and bands are contributing a portion of “merch” sales.  Donations for a tax deductible receipt can also be sent to: Matthew House, 1538 Tourangeau Rd. Windsor ON. N8Y 4J4.  Att’n Linda Hood.
