Thanksgiving Pottery Sale at Marlin Orchards, near Summerstown

Looking for a Thanksgiving outing?  Consider a trip to Summerstown, just east of Cornwall on Hwy 2, along the St. Lawrence River.  For many years now, potter Ann Marlin, of Marlin Orchards has hosted a pottery sale in the now empty greenhouses.  There are 18 of us there this year, many from the Cornwall/Seaway area, and others from Montreal, Ottawa, and areas in between.  Each year there are one or two new potters--always a great variety.

There are lots of pumpkins and colourful mums for sale this time of year.  And of course lots and lots of apples of many varieties.  Today I picked up some tulip bulbs too.

The sale begins Saturday, Oct 8 and runs through til Monday, Oct. 10.  I believe the hours are 10-5 each day.  More info at

Richard Gill sculpts amazing historical and contemporary clay relief images.  This year his annual fall show includes a series of images of the Ottawa Valley in recognition of Renfrew County's 150th Anniversary, and he has made a special series of works inspired by a Jamaican trip.  Bittersweet Gallery is in picturesque Burnstown, about an hour west of Ottawa.  More info is available at

Bittersweet Gallery is full of beautifully handcrafted works by over 40 world renowned artists who work in a variety of media.  I'm pleased to say that my pottery is now for sale at Bittersweet Gallery as well!

If you're looking for a charming destination for a fall colours tour, little Burnstown has lots to offer.
