The Blue cabin*, just steps from the Maple cabin, was purchased in a moment of serendipity by Lisa’s father and stepmother. The purchase allowed them to increase the amount of space for visiting family and guests during the summer season. Like the Maple cabin, it contains an eclectic collection of inherited, found, and recycled family objects, as well as those from its previous owners.

*During the planning of this exhibition, it was uncovered that Anona was the Blue cabin’s original name. Usually, cottages in the Lake region are given a name of some kind. It was also realized that the Maple Cabin was never properly named and this has conjured a recollection that someone in the family did in fact name it. More investigation is underway.

The Blue Cabin


“To walk from room to room reminds me of those family members who are no longer with us. It is also a mixed experience of seeing the relics of my past.”
