1. Guelph Artisan Store Update
The Guelph Artisan Store in downtown Guelph is closed again, as Ontario suffers though its third wave of the pandemic. I have updated the paintings there and I refer viewers to this site's Menu, listing At the Guelph Artisan Store, where the paintings are posted. The is "February Hike," and I write this now in February 2021 and again, like last year when this painting was created, there is plenty of snow on the ground. Check out "March Hike," also at the store now, to see that, yes indeed, spring is around the corner!
The Guelph Artisan Store is located in The Old Quebec Street Shoppes, immediately at the main intersection downtown. Masks are required within the building.
2. Art in the (Virtual) Street
I have recently been selected by this summer's juried Art in the (Virtual) Street, sponsored by the Guelph Arts Council and the Downtown Guelph Business Association. As the name implies, artists will be displaying their work online. Stay tuned for more details. This was my first year applying, and many many thanks to all those making this possible in the pandemic! There MAY be an additional live show later this year, perhaps in the fall, if provincial pandemic restrictions permit.
Three paintings of mine have been selected for the 2021 auction in benefit to the Three Sisters Centre in St. Jacobs, Ontario. This year's auction is called MayDaze, in celebration of spring. Here is one of my offerings, shown in situ, titled Spring Shower. A little sun, a little snow, and rain on the wind - that is a spring shower! More details of this auction will be posted here soon. The Three Sisters Centre will serve as a cultural and arts hub for the surrounding area once the pandemic ends.
