Stained Glass Spans the Nation:
Seven Canadian artists featured at Sattler's Studio's Open House on Remembrance Day Weekend, November 11, 2006.

West LaHave, Nova Scotia, Nov 6th -

Sattler's Stained Glass Studio is opening its doors for its annual Open House,
November 11-13 daily from 10am-5pm.
New stained glass and art glass by seven renowned Canadian artists will be on display in their studio gallery.

Over the past year, artists from Cape Dorset, Nunavut; Toronto, Ontario; and Nova Scotia have created truly unique works of art inspired by - and using - the medium glass. These artists, with the help of the professional stained glass artisans of Sattler's Studio, have taken glass way beyond its traditional limits once again.

The art of each artist is about as different from the other as the provinces the artists originate from. In fact the only thing these works have in common is the medium glass.

Renowned Inuit artist, Kenojuak Ashevak's lines translate beautifully onto coloured glass that is suspended in wooden frames. Her motifs of northern wildlife come to life on colourful mouth-blown antique glass, which has been etched and sandblasted to add contrast and depth.

Although the translation from paper to glass was the same for the works of the other Cape Dorset artists Ohotaq Mikkigak, Kananginak Pootoogook, Arnaku Kenojuak and Kakulu Saggiaktok their work speaks volumes about their life and culture. Their images take on a life of their own once they are carefully transferred onto deep blue, yellow or red glass.

Moving south-west from Cape Dorset to Ontario, we enter the home province of Sue Obata who has become somewhat of an honorary Nova Scotian since her work on the restoration of St. John's Anglican Church in Lunenburg four years ago. Since then Sue has worked on several commissions for churches in and outside Nova Scotia and somehow she found time for unique free lance work that combine painting and printing on coloured glass.

Richard Mueller has lived, taught, written and carried on his studio practice in Nova Scotia. He has worked in many media and will be introducing his newest series of pieces that combines glass, wood, and various metals. These pieces are works of contrast, of dark and light, plus and minus, heavy and light, soft and hard, fluid and solid.

This is the largest Canadian selection Sattler's Stained Glass Studio has ever shown in their studio. The studio is unique because of its collaboration with artists whose work they translate into glass. Making art in this way is relatively unknown in North America, but for Sattler's Studio it has been very successful since settling in Nova Scotia in 1993.

Immigration 2005 Conference
May 15 to 17, 2005
Pier 21 - Halifax, Nova Scotia

The Atlantic Mayors' Congress will host an immigration conference at Pier 21 in Halifax May 15 - 17 aimed at finding ways that communities across Atlantic Canada can work together to make the region more welcoming to immigrants.

Although the federal and provincial governments have lead responsibility for immigration, Mayor Peter Kelly strongly believes there is a role communities can play in terms of attracting, welcoming, integrating and retaining newcomers to Atlantic Canada.

It is only through better information and a collective commitment from government and interested organizations that we will be able to improve Atlantic Canada’s immigration record.

The conference will provide a forum for immigrants, settlement associations, universities, government policy makers, NGOs, researchers, businesses and employers in Atlantic Canada to explore best practices and discuss the possibility of adapting these practices to Atlantic Canada.

At the end of the conference, a 'tool kit' will be developed and distributed to conference participants suggesting ways communities can be more attractive and welcoming to newcomers.

Conference organizers are in the process of scoping out potential keynote speakers, guest speakers and panellists. The agenda will also feature vignettes during which newcomers will tell their stories of challenge in the immigration and settlement process.

Deep Integration With The USA!

Council of Canadians
As a government and corporate watchdog, the Council offers a critical voice on key national issues. Since 2004, the Council has focused on fighting deeper economic integration with the United States. This includes building popular opposition to the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, an agreement reached by Canada, the U.S. and Mexico in 2005, that is paving the way for Canada to integrate our security measures with those of the United States, surrender control of our energy supplies, sell off our water, and harmonize our medical drug testing policies with lower U.S. standards.

TheCouncil of Canadians has run highly influential citizen campaigns against cutbacks and changes to Canada's system of public pensions, the proposed mergers of four of the country's biggest banks, and the introduction of Bovine Growth Hormone into the nation's milk supply. The Council has also worked with groups and individuals across the country to fight the alarming concentration of media ownership in Canada. More recently, the Council has launched campaigns to prevent the bulk export of Canada's fresh water and to protect Canada's public health care system from privatization.
