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

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

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

Aspects of the Heart

Here are the 4 block prints I've made for the upcoming heart show at Gerrard Art Space in Toronto. The gallery has called for submissions of up to four pieces which got me thinking about the four chambers of the heart. This led me to the four elements: earth, air, fire and water. Though I… Continue reading Aspects of the Heart

The organizers received over 700 prints from 300 artists. Around half were selected by the jury. The show will open in late September in Vancouver, BC. I'm interested in seeing… Continue reading Good News

Dream Linocut–The Search

I'm going to enter four linocuts into another exhibit at Gerrard Art Space in Toronto. It'll be from the end of June into the first 2 weeks of July. One of the prints I've taken to my local framer is the one below. I carved it in the 1990s and for some reason that I… Continue reading Dream Linocut–The Search

Changes

I've finally completed the block prints I'll be sending to the miniature print show in Vancouver, Canada. Two of the three I showed in Proofs and the Past have either changed or been eliminated. The blue print called Dreamscape is the one that remains. Here it is printed on Japanese paper: The print I thought of… Continue reading Changes

When It’s 36 C

Yesterday the high in Toronto was 36 C, that's just shy of 97 F. Our air conditioner, which we are fortunate to normally have, was out of commission because of massive reconstruction in our building. I needed to go somewhere to counteract not only the heat but some of the terrible news of various forms of hatred that is… Continue reading When It’s 36 C
