A Few Details

January 24, 2009

Several people have asked us what the preferred option for paying for art is.  I’m happy to say that we will be accepting cash, cheque or credit card, although cheques are preferred as they will be the quickest to process.

Also please note that all sales are subject to 8% PST  except art which has been 100% donated by the artist.

It sounds like Aroma is going to be packed tonight, if you are unable to get a table don’t forget that you can always stop by and have a drink at the bar.


Tables Filling up Fast!

January 22, 2009

I was just over at Aroma checking up on things and Chef  Soyic informed me that there are only nine tables left for our Good Tastes night on January 24th.   More reservations came even while I was there and it looks like tables are going to sell out so don’t be disappointed, make a reservation now!

If you can’t get a table you are very welcome to have a drink at the bar, Aroma prides itself on its well stocked bar and wine selection.  Of course if you can’t make the night at all, we are happy to place a bid in absentia for you.  Just give us a call at the gallery 613-548-4883

To make a reservation at Aroma call 613-541-0330 and mention  Good Tastes.

Jazz Duo at Good Tastes

January 21, 2009

We are very excited to have renowned vocal Jazz Duo Sara Hamilton and David accompanying our Good Tastes dinner. The duo have produced tasty, swinging jazz for the past three decades in Toronto and Calgary, and have won rave reviews from jazz fans around the world.

“Sara Hamilton’s voice is a divinely husky, rich contralto that effuses warmth and intimacy. A masterful storyteller, her laid-back delivery is smooth and flawless, leaving tons of breathing room to create the perfect balance of tension and release that melds with her combined elements of delicacy and strength… David’s piano is the cornerstone of the sound, inspiring the hard swinging feel that is the mark of this recording, and the backbone for the guest musicians to build their dynamic presence upon. ….The duo’s signature is found in their intricate vocal dance as they perform their harmony and unison work, the timbres of their individual voices an ideal pairing .” – Reviewed by Cindy McLeod of Jazz Elements
