November | December 2014 | Ignitemag.ca | 21 PENNI MOVES ON This event was one of the last produced by Display Connection, which Penni Holdham, CSEP, founded 28 years ago. Last summer, Holdham announced her retirement and auctioned off most of her props. She's heading to Fenelon Falls, Ont., to a home complete with a workshop where she will create custom props and pursue her own artistic endeavours. "I've been making art for other people for over 35 years, now it's time to make art for me." But she's not totally out of the event biz—she's already been seconded to sit on a board that's creating an event to benefit marginal- ized women in her new hometown! In the afternoon before the event, attendees were treated to a full glamour makeover. Since many of the guests had mobility issues, photo ops were scattered throughout the venue, including a step and repeat under a sultan's canopy and the entrance and a desert backdrop complete with camel cutouts. To create semi-private seating areas with an Arabian feel, Holdham hung white drapes on mandaps. making art for other people for over 35 years, now it's time to make art for me."
