I am excited to report that I will be exhibiting 12 of my Reading a Garden paintings as part of a group exhibition called Pix and Paint at Cube Gallery in Ottawa, Canada. This is my first exhibition outside of Newfoundland therefore it is an important milestone in my career development. Cube Gallery +has an open call for submissions for themed shows yearly. I read about it in our provincial visual arts e-bulletin and submitted my work for consideration . All the artists are utilizing photography in some way in their work. It was a perfect match for my mixed media with photo transfers. I'm glad the owner thought so too.
I am hoping to attend the opening with will be September 6th. Because I have to ship my work mid August, I have been painting at least ten hours daily for the two weeks. I have four new painting in progress and I'm moving from one to the next so I don't overwork them. I am hoping that by the end of this week I will have some choice for the 12 I want to send. I am planning on creating 16 for this series (not this week). Isn't it great when you're on a roll!
