Check out ‘Warm & Bright‘ on facebook for updates!


It’s that time of year again – where Crystal Nykoluk and I mop the studio floor and throw open our 3rd floor ARTlington Studio door in a festive celebration of the handmade.

This year the Studio 6 Ceramics’ Warm & Bright Show and Sale has expanded to include the entire ARTlington Studios building! Warm & Bright will now feature three floors of over 20 professional Winnipeg artists creating contemporary works for homes and business alike; painting, pottery, jewelry, sculpture, photographs and more.
On Saturday December 3 from 12 – 2pm we will be joined by the lovely and talented Anne-Marie Williot of Chez Willi ! If you plan your visit for this time, be prepared for Anne-Marie to lead you on a journey to a land of cobble stone street and candle-lit cafes. Weaving memorable melodies with relate-able lyrics, Anne-Marie is well known to have everyone laughing, crying and singing along in her presence.

And if all that isn’t enough, those of you familiar with Warm & Bright will know to expect our signature sangria being served throughout the sale in our studio.

We are waiting for you! Come visit us December 2 & 3  to discover a Winnipeg hidden gem bursting with creativity.
