GIFT REGISTRY · Nov 13, 10:12 AM

What better way to commemorate a special day, then to view a beautiful original painting, and remember all those who contributed to your special day.

We have opened a GIFT REGISTRY PROGRAM for people who would like to purchase a painting as a group gift for a special occasion such as a Birthday, Wedding, Anniversary, or Retirement.

Like any Gift Registry, the Individual registers with us, where Party Guests simply provide us with their financial contribution. All monies are pooled together to provide a Gift Certificate for a painting of the individual’s choice.

In the past, some parties have chosen an available painting to post as the artwork that monies will be going towards. This was the case in the Dow-Stembridge Wedding Registry posted in a prior blog. They had enough contributions to purchase the painting of their choice … a very meaningful painting to them entitled Driftwood. They installed their painting prominently in their dining room and are reminded daily of their beautiful wedding day and all those who contributed to their painting.

DOW - STEMBRIDGE WEDDING · Apr 20, 09:38 AM

Welcome to the Liz Dow and Mark Stembridge Wedding Gift Registry with Claustro (paintings and sculpted paintings by Carol Currie and Stuart Leggett).

Liz and Mark’s wedding date is confirmed for 10-10-10 (that’s October 10, 2010) and will be held on the beautiful beaches of Georgian Bay.

Liz and Mark, both being strong advocates of the arts, chose to have their Gift Registry with us. They have already collected a few of Carol’s paintings. As it gets closer to their wedding, they will choose one of Carol’s paintings that are available, or will have one specially created to commemorate their union.
