There are only a couple of days left for my show at the Glenrose Hospital (Art on the Inside Gallery). It closes on Wednesday August 29 but I am gearing up for another show at the Loft gallery in Sherwood Park. I am the feature artist for the months of September and October. My show title " When Calls the Land"  will feature pastel interpretations of Alberta's diverse landscape. I have several new works that I have never shown before on exhibit at this show. The Loft Gallery (Ottewell Center/Red Barn) is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 12 to 4 (excluding statuary holidays). The show opens September 8 and runs until October October 28.

There are only a couple of weeks left to view my pastel interpretations of the Alberta landscape. Come out and view my work at Art on the Inside Gallery, lower level, Glenrose Hospital, Edmonton. The show will close on August 29. 

Another fantastic  "Series " course @ Red Deer College this past week. This year I took the "Mixed Media Printmaking" class with Tony Bousnall as instructor. The focus of the course was on collograph printing.  It was definitely a steep learning curve but the class was great again.

This week I am devoting to working on some bigger pastel pieces for my upcoming fall show in September and October at the Ottewell Centre/Red Barn. I need some bigger framed works to wow the viewers as they walk up the staircase to the Loft gallery. I am quite pleased with my first piece which I completed very very fast (1.5 days). WOW! I hope to create a companion piece to this one. Title is temporary...

So I have three new pieces at Rosie's in the Park (Sherwood Park) at 114 Athabascan Ave, Sherwood Park. The works will be on display for the next few months.  There is art work from several other artists from our local art society. So if you want to grab a bit to eat and see some local art stop by Rosie's. Have a Coffee at Rosie's in the Park and view some art.

Our local "hospital"/health care unit is now displaying art work from the  Strathcona Art Society. All the works are quite small (not exceeding 20 inches) due to the size of the display cases so the prices are GREAT!!! I have one work on display there. These works will remain on display until August 2018 (unless sold and then replaced with new pieces).
