This Week @ Norton’s Cove

I am in the studio today until 6, and I’ll be back after supper too, as I’ve got lots to work on!
If you’re in the area, drop in for a visit!

We’re getting ready for Christmas! Four holiday dinner parties have been booked at the Café, and we’ve added a new event on December 4th to sip hot drinks and watch the fireworks over the cove which the Town of New-Wes-Valley will be organizing. The fireworks are set to start at 7pm, and we’ll be open 6-8! Check out our google calendar, which is always up-to-date with everything happening at Norton’s Cove Studio & Café!

This Week @ Norton’s Cove

We’re back from the Far East! We’re pleased with our sales at the 48th Annual CCNL Christmas Craft Fair, and almost everything is put back in place in the shop, and we’re ready to get on with it.

Tomorrow we’ll be hitting the road again to do a Marine Survey in the Clarenville area to avoid some dirty weather forecasted for Thursday. I’m planning to print some Christmas cards while the snow is falling! I am sold out of Christmas Capelin, and I have a new 2022 card image in mind too. With Christmas just 40 days away, it’s time to get to work!

Duke has lots of mini disc fender wreath ornaments ($12 each) made, and I painted up some miniature lobster buoys (set of any 3 for $12) which are displayed in the press room. Great if you’ve got a bit of a nautical theme going this year!

Norton’s Cove Café is planning its Annual Tibb’s Eve event: tickets will be available on December 1st!

Norton’s Cove Studio’s

Land at Norton’s Cove

Because I have decided against the plan to build a hotel next door as was the hope of pre-COVID times, I am selling a parcel of land that I had purchased for that project.

If you know of anyone who is interested in purchasing land to build a new home in the local area, please refer them to my Real Estate Agent’s website! The property is listed as Wesleyville, but is actually in Brookfield- both a part of the eight amalgamated communities that make up New-Wes-Valley.

This week at Norton’s Cove Café

These fine gentlemen are coming back to perform Live at Norton’s Cove at the Lower Deck on October 8th! That’s the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend. I hope we’ll see a big outpouring of support for the Silver Wolf Band from Labrador. We’ve got 50 tickets at $20 each, and we’ll have some snacks and drinks on the menu at the Lower Deck so you can make it a great night out with visiting family and friends. You can get your tickets in the online store, or by visiting the studio.

UPDATE: DUE TO LOW TICKET SALES, I HAVE HAD TO CANCEL THE LIVE @ NORTON’S COVE PERFORMANCE BY THE SILVER WOLF BAND. THE 4 TICKETS THAT HAD SOLD HAVE BEEN REFUNDED IN FULL. (2nd October 2022)

All the great products you found at the Café Giftshop this year are now available across the road at Norton’s Cove Studio! Feel free to stop in any time you see the OPEN sign to get your Dark Tickle or Gros Morne Coffee fix!

Product Spotlight

Hermit Cove Cups have been greeting customers at Norton’s Cove Café all summer!

Hermit Cove Cup Series

  • Three editions of 100 prints + 1 Trial Proof
  • Available matted to fit a 10 x 10″ frame
  • Available in a professional metallic wooden frame
  • Janet Davis 2020
  • Printed on Canson Edition 250g Antique White paper
  • As seen at Norton’s Cove Café
  • $60 each matted
  • $104 each framed as shown

“These cups were created during COVID-19 restricted times.  While choosing books to read or listen to over the winter and spring, I found that the old stories of Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters were where comfort was found.  This translated to my artwork in that I found myself going back to old images, old ideas from my own work.  These teacups were originally used in my imagery in 1996 up until about 1999.  My series of work then, called teastory, was all about appreciating the little things in life, and realizing how good things are compared to the experiences of our ancestors.”

This week at Norton’s Cove Café

We had a great time with Cotillion last night! (From left, Dave Panting, Gerry Strong, and Hugh Scott) They held a captive audience through a downpour of rain and a bit of thunder and lightening, and I’m still humming their tunes this morning. I’m sure we’ll see them Live @ Norton’s Cove again on their next tour.

Our next Live @ Norton’s Cove Event at the Lower Deck is on September 10th, when we welcome David Guy to the stage. David is an artist living in Musgrave Harbour. He is married to our Pastry Chef, Chrys Hogan, and so is a part of our Norton’s Cove family. We’d love to pack the place with live music fans- so make some plans! Reserve a table at the café for supper before the show, or come with a bit of an appetite and enjoy Ted’s Lower Deck menu of small plates.
