At the residence of the Governor General at Rideau Hall, Oct 13, 2009

The Canadian Governor-General will soon be visiting Croatia, Slovenia and Greece. In preparation for these state visits, she hosted a reception at her home with the help of the Canadian Ambassadors from these three countries. Artists with Croatian and Slovenian ethnic roots displayed their art and the Greek contingent had a choir with Bouzouki accompaniment.

The event also featured at the stage performances, a folk singer from Slovenia and a classical guitarist from Croatia.

The event was well attended and I got to meet the Governor-General, Her Excellency the Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean, and even had her photo taken with me and my paintings.

The food was traditional servings from the three countries – wonderful, hard to stick to only one country.

A very successful social and art exhibit for all that attended.
