I would like to wish all of you a Happy Easter! 

This newsletter is slightly longer than usual because I have so much good news to share.

Let me begin by telling you that the Lambeth Art Association raised $6000 to assist in the relief of the people of Ukraine. The generosity of our members and those who purchased the donated paintings is remarkable. I don’t know when I have been so proud to be a member of LAA.

The LAA Annual Show and Sale is online this year. I have two paintings in the show. It begins on April 22 at www.lambethart.com

I am excited to share that Linda and Jim Taleski, the owners of Main Street Gallery in Bayfield, stopped by for a studio visit last week and the result was that they will be showing my work in their gallery. If you are in Bayfield stop by and visit their gallery. It is a lovely place to see .

 

                                                                   

 

If you have been on Richmond Street here in London, you may have seen one of my paintings decorating an electrical box. The painting was one of several artists’  paintings selected by the London Arts Council to be used in this project funded by the City of London. 

A reminder that the Western division of CSPWC’s Spring Show, Renewal, is happening at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington ON, from May 7th to June 12. The Opening takes place on May 14th from 2:00 to 4:00. This show is a cash and carry event so to see all of the work best come early.

Westland Gallery has invited me to take part in a Plein Air Exhibition which will take place from June 7th to 24th. I will provide more information in my next newsletter.

And my last piece of good news is that I was invited to send a submission to the Joyner Gallery at the Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre in  Niagara-on-the-Lake. Consequently I was offered a solo exhibition in July of 2023 which I was delighted to accept.

And now, at last, you may all take a collective sigh of relief. That is the end of my shameless self promotion, at least for now. Take care, get your booster, wear a mask and stay well.

Thanks, as always, for your interest and ongoing support.
