The Grilled Cheese Hideaway Gallery is hosting my second annual art show. The opening night is September 20th, from 6 to 9 pm. There will be original cow art, realistic and fanciful, watercolour and collage. There will also be great nibbles: miniature grilled cheeses, tiny soups and yum punch. Please come and provide the sparkling conversation to make the event spectacular. More information needed? Call the Grilled Cheese (705-731-2137) or Bearly Thayer Studio (705-738-4154).
This is a little late to be posting an opening, but I want to tell you that The Kawartha Arts Network co-operative hosted an opening last Saturday for their current show, "Paint it Big". Many of the participating artists were present to talk to guests about their work. This is a real plus of a show opening, to speak with the creators of the work and hear firsthand what inspired them and to share your reaction and interpretation of their work. I had a large piece in the show titled "Constellations of Bobcaygeon I", it is my largest collage to date measuring 30" x 22".
So you missed the opening of Paint it Big...that is no biggie because the show runs until April 5th. Also, there will be another opening for the next show in April as the co-operative has a new show every month. You can contact me for information at firstname.lastname@example.org as the Kawartha Arts Network is in transition since their recent incorporation.
"Constellations of Bobcaygeon I"
This week I'll be displaying my work in two locations in Bobcaygeon. The Boyd Art Room at the library and The Grilled Cheese Hideaway Gallery. I am showing my new constellations of Bobcaygeon series of collages and a select number of field collages.
The collages themselves are painted with acrylic, nail polish and glitter and have sewing patterns incorporated into the surface.
All the collages have wee cows in them, these are the subjects that tell the story of the pieces. The cattle, though in fanciful environments such as floating through the night sky or walking along an instructional line of a sewing pattern, behave and interact like real cattle.
Please, if you are in Bobcaygeon, stop by and have a look, take out a book, enjoy a grilled cheese.....
