New work at the Bruce Peninsula Artists’ Co_Op Gallery, The Gallery opened for the season this May long-weekend. In June the Gallery is open just Saturdays (10-4) and Sundays (Noon-4), but in July and August we are open 7 days a week! I often sit the Gallery so you may see me if you visit. The Gallery is located at the crossroads of Highway 6 and Concession Road 9, Ferndale Ontario

These are two of my older works, both landscapes, painted in oil on canvas. I have finally been able to take them out of storage and hang them in my living-room at home, where the ceilings are high.

It has been a busy year!

It has been very busy for me, trying to paint outdoors, in the Studio, hanging work at Galleries and Cafes. I belong to the Bruce Peninsula Society of Artists and I am a recent member of the Bruce Peninsula Co-Op Gallery, so that involves meetings, and a big Opening in May, hanging work, changing the work in the middle of the summer and sitting the Gallery. It all takes time. Here are a few works hanging on the featured wall of the Gallery, I was thrilled that it was my turn to show my work on this wall!!!


The paintings are all oils on canvas.

After the Exhibit

“Imagined Landscapes” was up at the Santa Fe Gallery in Owen Sound, Ontario for three weeks.  The last day was March 22, 2014.  It was a successful exhibit, many of my friends and acquaintances came to the Opening Reception.  I had some fantastic feedback about my work, and many people were very interested in the Gallery as well.  The Santa Fe Gallery is new to Owen Sound, really only the third Gallery operating here.

So back to my Studio for a while, to make more work, and complete started works for the upcoming Studio Tours for this year (more about that in a later post), and to organize some work to hang at the Bruce Peninsula Artist’s Co-Op Gallery in Ferndale, Ontario.  The Co-op Gallery opens on the long-weekend in May, and we usually have a big Opening Reception, and often its the first meeting of many artists who do not stay in “cottage country” during the winter months.

This painting featured with this post was one of the works that sold at the Opening  of the Imagined Landscapes Exhibit.

This is one of the paintings in the Exhibition. This piece is titled “At the edge of the pond” and is based on a quiet area on Hanlan’s Point, Toronto Island. The work is hung, the labels are in place , the food and wine bought and all I have to do is be there tomorrow.  The Opening Reception is from 2 – 4 pm.  The location is the Santa Fe Gallery, 828 3rd Ave East, Owen Sound Ontario.  The Gallery is accessed through the Grassroots Solar front door.  Hope to see you there! The edge of the pond

Stuart Burgess, a friend and fellow artist and I will be sharing the Gallery space, which is a new gallery in Owen Sound, and it is a beautiful light filled space.
