Roll Out The Barrels: Jordan Village Pours on the Christmas Spirit

For release: Nov. 5, 2017
Jordan Village, ON – There is a proverbial buzz as Jordan Village ‘Decks the Halls’, but the best is yet to come. Christmas in the Village is an annual retail celebration and this year it takes place November 24, 25, 26th. This season we are adding style, flair and a flash mob of Santas.
We invite you Friday, November 24th at 6:00PM for a tree lighting ceremony unlike any other. Dust off those Santa hats as the village endeavours to create the largest group selfie of Santas. Gather around the tree and become part of the flash mob singing Oh, Christmas Tree in celebration. Join us for warm cocoa and cider until 8: 00PM. If you don't have a Santa Hat you can purchase one for $5 and a portion of the proceeds will go to Community Care.
The tree is the talk of the Village! How so? Well, what do you get when you lock a bunch of winemakers, retailers and event planners in a room and ask them to come up with “something very special” for their Christmas celebrations? The group has re-created the 2016 Jordan Village Wine Barrel Christmas Tree.
As Jordan Village is the home of Cave Spring Cellars, it only made sense to go with a vintage vintner’s theme. What better way than to use old oak wine barrels, stacked to form the shape of a tree? But, how do you top something like that? How about a 100-year-old antique grape press, pulled out of retirement! Once the base assembly was completed, it was handed over to a small team of very talented decorators who adorned the tree with greenery, lights, and decorations, creating something very unique and festive.
On Saturday and Sunday, the village will be a bustle with fashion excitement. Be sure to visit the stylish shops filled with wonderful gift ideas for your Naughty & Nice list. Shopping deals and treats throughout the weekend. In the spirit of holiday giving, each store will also be collecting donations for Community Care of West Niagara.

A Multitude Of Infinities:  A Folio Of Lithographs BY SHUVINAI ASHOONA


This suite of sumptuous edge-to-edge printed lithographs employ a playful complexity of pattern and an unusual colour palette. These prints address a range of natural themes invoked by Ashoona’s unique approach to conventional iconography and her distinctive otherworldly aesthetic. 

Seals, Walruses, and Clams are depicted along with plentiful Octopuses— a recurrent fascination. In this body of work, Ashoona has again occupied a visual space that is altogether lyrical, humorous, frenetic and more than a little off-putting.

Shuvinai Ashoona has exhibited extensively both within Canada and internationally. Her work occupies a unique place within contemporary Inuit art, combining elements of Inuit culture and mythology with influences derived from contact with southern industrial society, all subsumed within her richly imaginative world.
