For the Love of Jo

For the Love of Jo

One of our longtime sponsors, the coffee shop Love of Jo, also display our members art on their walls. Each month a new tour artist's work is shown. 

For the month of September and October, as a preview of the Tour, the paintings represent a sample of the work that you will see. 

Stop by, have a coffee and enjoy our work

Ray McNeice

Ray McNeice has just finished hanging 23 of his paintings on the walls of our "funky" downtown coffee house. 


Here is a watercolour that he did one Sunday morning from across Main Street.  

For The Love of Jo has been a supporter of the local art community for several years. It hosts a monthly rotation of the painters of the Stouffville Studio Tour and February is Ray’s month. 

Please drop by if you're in our neighbourhood, say hello to Raphael or Michael and enjoy the best coffee in town. They also have wonderful homemade soups, sandwiches and desserts.

Ray McNeice at For the Love of Jo


Studio Tour artist Ray McNeice has just hung some 20 of his pen & inks drawings, watercolour and acrylic paintings at "For the Love Jo", a very arts-supportive coffee house on the Main Street in Stouffville. He hopes that those in the area will drop by for a look during the month of July and to support these generous folks. Great coffee, food and atmosphere!
