Variety was the evident at the Cancer Society Art Show held on December 21 at Pete’s Pub in Little Harbour. Artists came by the dozen to support the local organization that depends on the support of the community to help cancer patients with their expenses. Tents were set up in the parking lot and on the upstairs deck to shelter the numerous artists who arrived early on that Saturday morning to put their creations on display.

From a large assortment of quilted items by Vonda Bethel, to Sea-Glass Jewelry by Celia and the Bead Lady, the wide variety of items brought many patrons. There were also sea-heart creations by Melanie Rees, Christmas decorations, and some serious arts exhibits upstairs by Marjolein Scott, Jo-Ann Bradley, and Ritchie Eyma.

There seemed to be something for each of the visitors who flooded the premises from 11 o’clock on.

Patrons came by car, boat, and foot to enjoy the balmy weather and the strong drinks concocted by the Pete’s Pub bartenders. The aroma of grilled wild boar and other delectable dishes produced by the cook also enticed people to hang around.

Many came back to the art tables after their libations.

Melanie Rees’s necklaces and key chains featuring sea hearts- large beads often found on beaches among sea weeds-were very popular with the buyers of local souvenirs. David Rees’ photos of local landscapes also found a few buyers. The Cancer Society tables, covered in Christmas knick-knacks, soon became bare and most participants also met their sales expectations.

Overall, it was a very successful event not only for the Abaco Cancer Society but also for the many artists who enjoyed the exposure. Pete’s Pub too came out a winner. The restaurant had contributed to the space and catered to the many patrons who came that day.
