Art Gallery season is a upon us on Cortes Island! It’s my favourite time of year! We are so fortunate to have the Old School Art Gallery supporting local artists all while being run by volunteers and by donation. I’m proud to be a member and to be sharing my second solo art installation that will be opening the gallery season on June 14th. The gallery has six fantastic unique art shows by local talented artists this year. Every Friday is Gallery Nite with either an opening or an artist talk.
Come and experience my 365-day art challenge that takes you through a daily practice I followed for a year, working with a muse and exploring the Tarot Cards by picking one card a day, and using its colours as my palette. I worked on one rectangle a day and 8 rectangles per page – which filled 46 pages in total. My medium was pencil crayons and every day I learned something new. At the time, I had not consider it as process art, I was just inspired by other artists I had seen on social media as they shared their sketch books for the year in Dec 2017, and thought I would give it a try.
Everything Leads You to Something Else! The quote of the year!
I would like to invite you to the opening of Wink! reception on June 14th from 6pm to 9pm along with appetizers and beverages. The gallery is open Saturday and Sunday 2pm to 6pm. On Friday June 21, I’ll be hosting an artist talk and it will also be the Summer Solstice so join me for a celebration from 6pm to 9pm Saturday, from 2pm to 6pm on Sunday. I’ll be hosting the gallery each day and I look forward to sharing my art process and more with all of you!
