Who doesn't like a good story? These memorable moments are highlights from the Memory Lane Project©, made possible with an 'Artist Next Door' grant awarded to E. Connie Munson from Halton Hills Cultural Programming. Enjoy a display of curated artifacts, candid portraiture, and pastel paintings that are a storyboard of people's lives. The richness of experience and fun of sharing those memorable moments is enhanced with a series of mini-presentations from people who started to write their memoirs during the WritingYOU! workshops led by E. Connie Munson, an area writer, photographer, and artist. Leave with a short overview of "Conversations That Span Generations", aka good interviewing tips.

Organized by

E. Connie Munson

Known as ecmunson with her photography and writing, her role as a social-animateur on this project gave people some tools for writing their memoir-style pieces. The interviews she did focused on lives richly lived from four area people. Her candid portraiture of them and her pastel paintings more fully depicted some of their 'memorable moments'. Studio By Design©, for her photography and arts practice, plus DIMEC©, for writing content and promotion work, are two companies she has registered since her retirement from education. Prior to her 27 years teaching, she also worked in the fields of sales and marketing and social work. She writes regularly for on-line news media and arts groups' newsletters, sits on the board of two arts organizations, belongs to several arts groups, and averages 25 annual showings of her art and photography, both in virtual and on-site locations. Photographic Distinctions include: "Tangled Reflections", 2021 - 3rd Place in category at McMichael Gallery; "Crimson Glory", 2021, "Old Apple Trees", 2018, L.A.O., In-Camera Dining Room, Queen's Park; "A Wild Stillness", 2020 - 3rd place Beaux Arts Gallery; and "Moody Blues", 2019 - Honourable Mention, Joshua Creek Heritage Arts Centre.
