Join me on Thursday September 20th at the opening night party and awards ceremony for SELECTIONS 2018, one of Ottawa’s largest juried art exhibitions. It’s the annual show of the Arts Network Ottawa that will take place from 7 to 9 pm in the Trinity Art Gallery at the Shenkman Arts Centre (located at 245 Centrum Blvd in Orleans). I have a new painting in the show and if you can’t make to the opening, the show continues until October 16th.
I’m also currently exhibiting in the Federation of Canadian Artists’ LIMITLESS 2018 exhibition that runs online from 1 August to 31 October 2018.
I’m a full-time Ottawa artist and I paint in acrylics. I paint the light and the shadow it casts in urban landscapes — the streetscapes and people I see all around me. I hope that viewers of my paintings will enter into the scenes of my paintings and muse about the places and the people on my canvases or, even better, let the paintings reconnect them with memories of their own.
I just wrapped up a solo show entitled “Market Life” at the Galerie Old Chelsea that ran from 22 June to 11 July 2018. The work in that exhibition celebrated marketplaces from far and wide. I was inspired by the teeming “market life” as well as the sun and the shadows in busy marketplace scenes. Thanks to everyone who came out to the show!
Now I am hard at work, right where I want to be, in my wonderful new studio creating new paintings. Check my website regularly to see them as they are completed.
Contact me if you want more information about any of my paintings or if you have any questions.
