After three decades, downtown Barrington flower shop closing

So, a full cycle from birth until death, they come to their local florist and you feel like you've been there with them."Employee Barb Eppolito of Algonquin said she met Bremner about 15 years ago. She said she's enjoyed her design work and customers at the shop."I'm happy for (Bremner and her husband) to retire and go on to the next chapter in their lives," Eppolito said.Although known for its tulips imported directly from the Netherlands and selections from South America, the business has not been just about flowers. Bremner's store became a showcase for local artists every two months through her support of a Barrington nonprofit organization.Diane Morino, steering committee chair of the Barrington Cultural Arts Center, said Bremner's support was appreciated."She'll be sorely missed," Morino said. "She really will be, on many levels."Jeani Allaway, a cultural arts steering committee member and 30-year Barrington resident, said she always could count on getting a nice gift quickly at the Fresh Flower Market. She also complimented Bremner's novelty flower displays."She has a unique taste in flowers," Allaway said.Saying she didn't want to see another pretty shop fold, Bremner purchased the Fresh Flower Store 16 years ago after a deal with another potential owner fell through. However, she could not find a suitable buyer for her business."Now, I feel bad that nobody is taking over for me," said Bremner, who plans to spend more time with her husband and family along with possibly getting involved in prairie restoration as a volunteer. "It's bittersweet." #article_video {width:100%;margin:25px 0;max-width:576px;overflow:hidden;} ... (Chicago Daily Herald)

Ottawa painter Nicole Allen finds inspiration in nature's beauty

Founder of Crimson Training Solutions Inc., moved to Ottawa in 1997 where she received an applied museum studies diploma at Algonquin College. With two young children, she continued crafting her painting skills by attending classes at the Ottawa School of Art. Today, Charlie is 15, and Sydney is 12, who according to Allen, “is also very artistic” while her husband provides the “muscle behind every art fair and show. “I don’t remember not drawing or painting,” says Allen, who six years ago put her toe into the art market for the first time by participating in a small mixed show at Irene’s Pub on Bank Street. All of her paintings sold, prompting her to paint full time. Allen’s art is luscious and bold; she achieves this effect by using acrylic paints in layers over charcoal, Conté and ink. Her impressionistic landscapes use colour fearlessly and, she says, appeal more to men, as do her giant canvases of crows or cardinals with attitude. Her floral still-life paintings, which are both blocky and delicate, are favourites with women.  When I ask whether a painting of vibrant poppies seen from a bee’s vantage point, called Order in the Chaos, was inspired by her own garden, she laughs and emphatically says, “No.” She confesses her back garden in the Glebe is a “work in progress” since the construction of an infill next door displaced many of her plants. Instead, inspiration came from a photo in an old English gardening magazine.  Giant paintings of birds and rugged landscapes tend to appeal more to men. Wayne Cuddington / Ottawa Citizen Surprised and delighted by her art success, Allen also seems unfazed by it. Gearing up for her third active year of painting and exhibiting, she realizes the vocation was always there. I point to a painting with fluttering petals of white cosmos, and ask its name.  “We each have our own path,” she says with a smile.

In Memoriam

Board Member of United Way and YMCA, and volunteered for 22 years at Champlain Valley Physician's Hospital. He was a longtime member of the ADK Club Algonquin Chapter. An avid sailor, Pete raced with the NYC Yacht Club and loved teaching his children and grandchildren to sail on Lake Champlain. His passion for singing was a constant joy to his family, coming up with the words to any song to fit any occasion. He was in the Metropolitan NYC Glee Club & member of several church choirs. Later in life, Pete was best known for his hand-made cedar tables and roaming about Sunnywood on his golf cart. He traveled with the North Country Honor Flight for WW2 Vets in June 2013, and said, "other than my wedding day it was the most memorial day of my life." Pete/Grampy's legacy and memory will live on in his wife, Jane Hubbell of Chazy, five children; Ralph Peters (Peter) Hubbell, Jr. and his wife, Jeanne, William S. Hubbell and his wife, Patty, Geoffrey L. Hubbell and his wife, Kathleen, Becky Hubbell and her husband, John Riley, and Patti Hubbell, as well as 9 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren. His family will cherish his memory as being gentle, kind and above all dedicated to family. Calling hours were held on Tuesday December 29 at the Brown Funeral Home in Plattsburgh, NY. In lieu of flowers the family would appreciate donations made to Lake Champlain Committee or Hospice of the North Country. Burial will be at Glenwood Cemetery in Champlain, NY in the summer followed by a celebration of life gathering at Sunnywood. (Garden City News)
