I’ve been busy preparing for a trio of exhibitions this summer. There are upcoming Instructors exhibitions at the Ottawa School of Art, downtown and at the Orleans campus. In addition to these two regular fixtures, I’m also participating in an exhibition at the Sivarulrasa Gallery in downtown Almonte – a collection of painting and sculpture titled “Unbound”.
I’m really excited to be part of each of these shows: Downtown at the OSA I’ll be previewing one of my new series of pastels. “With both hands now” is a combination of line work completed with my right hand, with colour and context using my (normal) left hand. At the Orleans campus, I’ll be showing 3 recent classwork demonstrations, continuing my “Sur le vif” theme…. one of my favorite approaches…quick studies on the spot, in acrylic, pastel, and watercolour. Over in Almonte, Sanjeev at the Sivarulrasa Gallery has chosen 5 of my expressive figurative works from a few years ago for the “Unbound” exhibition. I’m so pleased to show them the light of day once more. Art should be hung regularly!
Ultimately, sharing the breadth of my work this summer is what I’m looking forward to. I hope that you can join me in celebrating:
