It has been a busy spring with a lot going on and now excited to celebrate summer! Last May – I was honoured to be the guest artist for an art group I belong to, East Central Ontario Art Association at Chippewa Resort, near Barry’s Bay.It was fun and I had a great time giving a demo of my oil painting. The next night, was critique night, which I like to call Show and Tell.It was inspiring, constructive and fun!
In June – I had a nice reunion with board members of the Society of Canadian Artists for our Annual General Meeting at the Arts & Letters Club in Toronto. It is great to meet everyone since our board is spread out throughout Canada and we do not see each other often. I am an elected member and chair person for the SCA newsletter.It was also a celebration of our 60th anniversary with an open Members show at Art Square Gallery in Toronto.I am also pleased to share that my entry, “One Heart” for O Canada, Elected Members Exhibition at Gallery 78, Fredericton, New Brunswick was selected as part of the group show that took place June 16 with show running until July 9, 2017.Whoo hoo!!
This June also was a celebration for the Oshawa Art Association, where the OAA has secured 5,600 sq ft gallery space in the heart of Oshawa, which is at the main floor of Holiday Inn Express.The opening night and exhibition was highly successful with over 200 guests in attendance!
Coming August, I will have a group exhibition with 4 of my art students at SweetArt Studio at Art Square Gallery, Toronto with opening reception on August 2.
I will have a Landscape Abstract class at my studio on July 15th, for 1 day only so if you are interested please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 905-718-7289.
