Exhibition News

In the fall or early winter, I was happily surprised to receive a cheque for one of my entries into the Ottawa School of Art Miniature Print Biennale Exhibition. The print called The Conductor had sold. Then a week or two ago--I lose sight of time during the pandemic--I received a copy of the exhibition's… Continue reading Exhibition News

Anna Torma at The Textile Museum

There is a small, excellent museum in Toronto called the Textile Museum of Canada. It re-opened recently and I went there on the weekend to see the work of one of my favourite artists, Anna Torma. She does large scale hand embroidered pieces that are spectacular. Her exhibition is called Permanent Danger after a piece… Continue reading Anna Torma at The Textile Museum

Brian Jungen, The Moon & Printmaking Show

I had an enjoyable time at the Printmaking Show Reception a few weeks ago. And a week later, I learned that, happily, my print, Smarten Up, had sold. Since then, I've been working on two more prints that I'll post when they're further developed. In the meantime, here's some photos of two shows I went to… Continue reading Brian Jungen, The Moon & Printmaking Show

Polaroids in Montreal

I was in Montreal, Quebec last week where one day we went to the McCord Museum that we had not been to before. One of the exhibits at the Museum was the Polaroid Project showing work by many artists. Later, when I was in the gift shop, I saw that the Museum was lending Polaroid… Continue reading Polaroids in Montreal

Two Tiny Prints & A Show

Here's two very small prints--under four inches longest side each--that I made while thinking of entering a print exchange in the UK. Nothing was going smoothly and I finally decided not to enter the show. The first one morphed from a sunny face into one that began looking like some politicians I dislike and into… Continue reading Two Tiny Prints & A Show

Back Again

I'm still out here. I've been ill off and on but now I want to show you what I've been doing over the last month. First of all I received the catalogue for the international miniature print exhibits that I was in. It was fabulous to see one of my prints among so many excellent… Continue reading Back Again

Kevork Mourad

For the past 2 weekends, I've gone to the Aga Khan Museum in Toronto to see the work of Kevork Mourad, who was artist in residence at the Museum. I wasn't familiar with his work, but was drawn to watch him work because he was combining painting and printmaking. I loved seeing him work last… Continue reading Kevork Mourad

Another Heart and A Show

This is another block print I recently made but did not enter in The Heart Show that the other four will be in. I felt this one--another version of a heart of fire--stood outside the series I had made and stood on its own. So, another time and place... The Heart Show--January 30 - February… Continue reading Another Heart and A Show

The Print That Got In

I've just gotten back from a wonderful trip to Italy--somewhere I've never been. I didn't draw while there but saw some fabulous artwork and architecture and took many photos that I'll be showing here. On returning home I saw that a catalogue had been produced for BIMPE X, the miniature print exhibit I'd entered in… Continue reading The Print That Got In
