Something New

This is one of the new ways I am creating art--these are each about 12inx3in, and are made using fusible webbing, scraps of paper and material, and are backed with paper or mounted on wood.

"Red Drip on Black"

This piece was on view at the Awol Gallery's Square Foot Show this past August. Not sure how it was received as I was in Australia at that time. Also the Art Garage Sale that I held two Sundays ago was a huge success--I cleared out about 25 works that no longer represent my style and some neighbours and young people went home very happy with their affordable art.

Art Garage Sale

Tomorrow, Sun. Oct 23 I am trying something new. I am hosting an Art Garage Sale--selling some of my "work from an earlier period" to make some room in the studio and to enable collectors to buy art at very reasonable prices. Come over to 180 Timber Drive, London from noon to 4pm and lets bargain!

The first painting I ever had accepted in a juried show! It was at the London Arts Council Market Show held in the new Covent Garden Market.

Royal Botanical Gardens, Melbourne

This is a photo I took of an unusual tree in the Royal Botanical Gardens, Melbourne. What a great city! And the National gallery of Victoria is fabulous, both for collection and buildings.

Cliffs in Australia

Just back from a month in Australia--the ocean and cliffs down the coast between Adelaide and Melbourne were awesome and the art galleries were fascinating. Off this Wednesday Sept. 21 to Artprize in Grand Rapids Mich. for opening, etc. if you go to Artprize, look for my work at Open Concept Gallery.

Johannesburg SA Art Gallery

In this photo, you can see a piece of political art from the Art Gallery in Johannesburg. It is a mixed media work by Willie Bester titled "1948" and completed in 1993. Again great use is made of the materials that are "found" but the purpose has changed from decoration to expression. The contemporary art in SA was raw, and explosive.

South Africa

Lesedi Cultural Village in South Africa an interesting introduction to five different tribes of SA. A good way to see a snipet of a way of life that is rapidly changing. For an artist the use of colour and materials was fascinating and inspiring, and for all a bit of "culture shock".

6th Annual Miniature show at The Art Exchange

The 6th Annual Miniature Show at the Art Exchange in Wortley Village opened last Friday with a full house attending. I had submitted 2 pieces and discovered upon arriving at the Opening that one had already sold. You can check out for a nice review and google the Art Exchange in London, Ontario for pictures of all the miniatures on display. If you can, plan a visit to the gallery as it is a fine show.

New Venue

You've seen "The Horse" before on my blog but now you can see it in "real life" at a gallery called Unique on Central Ave. just west of Richmond. This is a great new gallery carrying original art, jewelry, and art designed clothing. Also on view are 4 other works of mine including the piece I identified in my last post as "Push me Pull you" but is actually titled "Seeing Double".
Ooops! Do try to visit, its a great new spot, with a Starbucks close by if you require a hot chocolate on these cold January days.
