December shows

 

December is the month of gifting, and a good time to give some art. Rob is participating in three shows with a range of affordable art.

FUEL for Hibernation at Studio22 Open Gallery in Kingston is an exhibit of art under $500, that helps while away the dark hours of winter. The show runs from November 3 to December 8.
Art Emporium by the River in Port Hope hosts its Great Art Contest that runs from November 2 to December 2, 2018. Rob has three paintings in this exhibition and sale

You can meet Rob at The Art of Gifting: Holiday Sale at LAUNCH Shop & Gallery in Peterborough on Friday art Crawl on December 7 from 6 to 9pm and on
Saturday, December 8 from 10 to 4pm. He’ll be there with smaller  paintings and printmaking pieces, including new mixed media works combining linocut , blind emboss and postage stamps.

New work featuring Peterborough

Wet street after heavy rain reflects red, yellow, orange, purple and white lights from traffic and commercial signs. On the left we see a modern four-story building, opposite an older building, both in orange and brown hues. The sky is filled with dark blue clouds, and breaking up, showing light blue and light purple
Transition

Transition – oil on canvas, 30 x 30″, 75 x 75 cm

It was a late afternoon early December and the rain poured down on Peterborough. Just when I stepped outside on Aylmer Street the sky started to clear; the rain would soon be over.

The Aylmer and Hunter intersection features the old and the new. A recent apartment building on the west side across from vintage Sandy’s Variety that bookends Hunter Street’s entertainment stretch, a part of town very much in transition.
