Local Art Exhibit

Welcome to our first virtual art exhibit! When COVID hit, we had so many wonderful local artists lined up to exhibit in our dining room, and unfortunately had to put those on hold when we closed our physical storefront. We are thrilled to host this first blended virtual & in-person exhibit. If you'd like to see any of these pieces in person (to fully appreciate the fine details, and the texture & colours of the glass) please stop by our pick up area at The Island Jar in Little Current Tuesday - Friday 11-5 (Thursdays until 6). These pieces are available for local pick-up or delivery island-wide.

About the Artist: Sudbury based visual Artist, Karen Ylitalo has been developing her skills as a mosaic artist for the past several years. Originally from the French River area, Karen has combined her drive to create with a love for her natural surroundings. Drawn to its unique reflective and textural properties, glass serves as an inspiration in her creative process. When not creating in her studio, Studio K Mosaics, Karen teaches introductory mosaic classes at The Open Studio in Sudbury (pre-COVID) and works as a Nurse. Once it's safer to do so, we hope to have Karen host a glass mosaic workshop at The Jar!
