Life has been feeling very busy but that is no excuse to not make blog posts! I've been blogging for something like 12 years, and I have realized that I don't want this to peter out just yet. Maybe not ever. So here we go again... :)
I've made a series of art cards using images from the "Archaea" book.
Been thinking of doing this for years, and hooray I finally did it! *laughs*
They are now available at Bluerock Gallery.
Displayed in a vertical column. I like that.
May 31 - June 2, 2019
Their biggest yearly fundraiser, which I am happy to participate in especially after my terrific experience of installing "just turn your head a little" in their main gallery in March.
Some of my paintings on 22x30 Arches w/c paper will be available:
Subterranean - Meninx - What They Saw Next Is True
Autotroph - Integuments
And some of my (very small) "Seeds" paintings too:
These are on masonite panel, and will fit in your hand.
I will be in attendance on June 1-2, demonstrating some of my art-making processes. Please drop by and say hello!
Have I mentioned how wonderful the The Leighton Art Centre is? They are an education centre and make all their programs available to kids from all walks of life. Some of the kids who access the LAC programs are inner-city poor and have rarely, if ever, spent a day out in the country. While I was installing my work in March, a few school groups came through on tours, and I had such fun interacting with them.
I cannot say enough good things about the LAC, and I hope lots and lots of people come buy to enjoy nature, music, and food, and purchase artworks!
Happening a bit later:
My artwork included in a book!
"Vistas of the West: Poems and Visuals of Nature"
published by Lorene Shyba.
This book will go on tour!

Exhibition of art at Framed on Fifth in Calgary for the full month of August.
Readings at Sheep River Library, Turner Valley, September 8.

Until next time, dear Reader.
