Fire and Ice receives Honorary Mention

At the Art Gallery of Bancroft’s 37th Annual Juried Exhibition, jurors Laura Culic and Marc Gagnon, awarded Fire and Ice an honorary mention in the Still Life category. This 24 x 24″ oil painting shows the last light shining through a glass of white wine and two water glasses with lots of ice; through the window we see a downtown Tucson, AZ street with a yellow umbrella and woman on her phone: a moment of reflection. The painting was created as part of Rob Niezen’s Celebration series. The exhibition of close to a hundred artworks at the Art Gallery of Bancroft runs through December to the end of January 2020.

Shows in Fall 2019

This fall is turning out to a busy and exciting time, with a solo exhibition at the Art Gallery of Bancroft titled Nocturnal Reflections, opening November 1st, and participation in a number of other shows.

Also opening November 1 is Squared, a 50/50 fundraiser for the Art School of Peterborough. Six of my Celebration pieces, ranging from 6×6” to 24×24” are on the walls looking for new homes and supporting the art education programmes for this not for profit organization.

November 7 will see the opening of PRINT 2019 at the John B. Aird Gallery in Toronto, for which one of my Heads & Tales linocut-mixed media prints was accepted. This is a promising exhibition for fans of printmaking.

Five of my oil paintings are part of A Holiday Art Market at the Colborne Street Gallery in Fenelon Falls. This show runs from Thursday, November 7, 2019 until Sunday, January 5, 2020, with a reception on Thursday, November 21.

On November 23 and 24 I’ll be participating in the Jamaican Self-Help Artisan Show and Sale in Peterbrough with linocuts and my Heads & Tales works, as well as doing demonstrations. Funds raised during this show will support education and community development programmes in Jamaica, and in the inner-city of Kingston in particular.

And lastly, my most recent Nocturnes can be found at Studio22 Open Gallery in Kingston and at Meta4 in Peterborough.
