Book lovers (and wine lovers) looking for a reason to spend a spring day in the Niagara Region need look no further than Wayzgoose, held annually at the Grimsby Public Art Gallery on the final Saturday of April. This year's event from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 30th marks Wayzgoose's 33rd year. With 49 exhibitors from across Canada and the United Stated lined up, it promises to be the town's finest celebration of the book arts yet.

Visitors to Wayzgoose can expect demonstrations and displays of paper making, book binding, calligraphy, paper marbling and book making. In our digital age, it can be a refreshing change to celebrate the material process behind the fine art of printing and small-press book production.

Artists at this year's event include Don Taylor, Will Rueter, Margaret Lock, Teresa Malaryk, Karoline Varin-Jarkowski and George A. Walker, whose remarkable wood engravings can be found in the recently published Book of Hours and
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
(The Porcupine's Quill). Wayzgoose will also mark the release of the spring issue of The Devil's Artisan, featuring more of George Walker's work.
