This February 14th (Valentine’s Day) marks Drawnonward’s 18th annual show of collected works. I have been a member for nearly twenty years now! It has been an amazing and rewarding experience to be able to keep working with this great group of artists who just happen to also be my best friends. We will show at Arta gallery in Toronto’s Distillery District from Feb.14th. to to 24th. Opening night is on Thursday, Feb.14th from 6-10pm. There will be beer, wine, some great cheese and some great live music.
We are proud to keep these winter shows up as a traditional night out for friends, family and of course our loyal patrons who have kept up with us over the years.
I am very proud of my newest body of work that concentrates on my favourite city, St. John’s. Once again I have done a body of work that explores the play of light in the hours before sunset and before sunrise. The ‘witching hours’. These oil paintings on board are meticulously and repeatedly glazed with a 3 color process over grey scale or ‘grisaille’ paintings. Please come out to opening night for an always fun and inspiring evening of art and celebration.
Half way through the Drawnonward show is the Artist Project (phew). This takes place for four days (Feb. 21-24) at the Better Living Centre, Exhibition Place, Toronto. It is a great show every year and should not be missed. I can be found in booth 741 (oil/acrylic). Here are some of the works I’ll be displaying there. It is more ‘witching hour’ material, but this time it is the streets of T.O.’s east end.
