In May she had a successful solo exhibition at St. James Church on Melville Street, at the end of June she retired from a teaching career at the Lee Academy, and in October her studio will feature as a new studio tour location on the immensely popular Dundas Studio Tour. For the Dundas Studio Tour Ms. Sawatzky will show a variety of watercolour monoprints.
