The Artistic Sphere Group's Fashion Show

Written By: Sharon A. Layton-Pollock

Members of The Artistic Sphere Group laid down their brushes and turned models for a evening. On May 6th., 2006 The Artistic Sphere Group put on a fundraiser in the form of a fashion show. They called their show, "Discover Joy." It was held in the Salisbury Royal Canadian Legion.

This fundraiser was put on to raise money for the portion needed by The Artistic Sphere Group to help bring to fruition The Petitcodiac Regional Interpretation and Cultural Centre, soon to be built in Petitcodiac, N.B. Canada. This Centre will be the pride of our area. It will bring to the forefront our rich culture and heritage. It will be a place for all to enjoy and learn more about Salisbury, Petitcodiac, Havelock, Elgin, River Glade and elsewere. This building will have an art gallery for The Artistic Sphere Group, as well as being the home for The Maritime Motorsports Hall of Fame Inc. Also, there will be a Visitor Information Centre, a museum for the area, conference room with a serving kitchen, and a theatre.

The ladies who attended the fashion show were not only treated to the new line of clothing from Weekender, but to the songs and music by Susan Layton. There were many prizes to give out, as well as a gift bag for each lady who attended. These all were made possible due to the great support of the local businesses in both Salisbury, Petitcodiac area, and from members of The Artistic Sphere Group.

A lucky lady from each table was able to take home the floral arrangements that were so generously donated by Vicky Steeves of The Lady Slipper Flower Shop in Petitcodiac. Many items for the silent auction were donated by Paul Lavoie, manager of the Irving Big Stop.

Before the fashion show began all were invited to partake of the dessert buffet, organized by Winona McLean, and compliments of all the members of The Artistic Sphere Group.

Ruth Esterbrooks, Weekender Representative from Moncton, introduced the lovely models as they modeled the Weekender fashions. The models for the evening were member Myrna Seely who helped organize the show, her daughter Vonda Kersting, Lois McFarlane, my daughter, Linda Gillcash, a professional model and my sister, Becky McCabe, Patty Goudreau, and member Debbie Williamson.

The Artistic Sphere Group were thrilled with the generosity of Debbie Carroll and her business, Forever Healthy in Riverview. She felt very strongly about the positive effects of our project on the area, and donated $1,000.00 toward it. She received a resounding round of applause from everyone.

I feel it would be amiss to not list the other businesses who donated to this evening, and made it a great success.

So, in closing, I would like to invite anyone from our area who is interested in joining The Artistic Sphere Group to e-mail me at We meet once a month, at The Irving Big Stop as well as having some of our artwork displayed there. We also send out newsletters, have workshops, outings and just plain have fun.

Our motto is: "Artists within our communities working together to encourage and promote each others artistic talents and endeavors."
