The summer heat has finally arrived!
As we all head off to the cottage and enjoy the wonderful Manitoba summer, lots of new things are happening at the shop.
We are happy to announce that we are expanding our line of LSA glassware, with some products exclusively available to us at 556 Academy!
One of our latest additions is the LSA pasta bowl - available in gorgeous white porcelain with ample room for a pasta or soup. We have been getting requests for this kind of versatile bowl - and we listened! Drop by the store to grab yours today.
Also, we're so excited to bring to you the LSA Serve Collection: an extensive collection of classic handmade glassware designed for displaying and serving food on all occasions throughout the seasons. These make wonderful gifts as well!
Featured Artist: Andrew Mahon
We are also welcoming to the shop Andrew Mahon who's photographs will be featured on our gallery wall. See below a note from Andrew on his practice:
"My name is Andrew Mahon and I am a freelance photographer based in Winnipeg, MB Canada who specializes in commercial and event photography. Photography for me is a lifestyle. I'm constantly working at new techniques and researching ways to better my craft. Whether I’m exploring around Winnipeg, or off to a client shoot I’ve always got my camera on me in case there is a moment I want to capture."
"This collection of images is from separate days over the past couple years exploring our city. Always having my camera on me creates opportunities to capture some of my favourite places around Winnipeg. I draw inspiration from watching people in their day to day life. Whether they’re walking across the street, waiting in their car, or going for a bike ride I’ve always found the business of the city to drive me to take photos."
Make sure to drop by and discover our boutique this summer. Please remember, we have new summer hours for July and August!
Wishing you all a wonderful summer!
