Art of the Cover

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

The Evans Gallery co-hosted this event tonight in conjunction with the Wine Festival Society to display and offer for sale works they have collected over the years that have appeared on the cover of Wine Festival guides. Two of my pieces were included: one that appeared on the Spring Wine Festival Guide cover in 2006 and the other on the 2007 Sun Peaks IceWine Festival brochure. The art show goes until May 15th, 2010.

Sopa Fine Arts U8 Opening

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

Tonight was the grand opening for Sopa Fine Arts ‘U8’ event. ‘U8’ stands for Under 800 as in all of the original art in the show is priced under eight hundred dollars. On our way to the show our friends called us and they were in the line up which they said went down the street. I was hoping to get there in time to feel the energy of the line up but by the time we arrived everyone had spilled in the front door. It was still electric. The gallery was buzzing. Red dots were flying up on the wall.

I have one piece in this show, a 12×12 acrylic called Rose Hips.
