Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition

28 Jul

visitors

It was such an honour to be selected for the 56th annual Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, held in Nathan Phillips Square in downtown Toronto. I’ve been attending the event since high school, and had an amazing time being part of the diverse group of artists on display.

We were lucky enough to have clear skies and sun almost the entire show, and the crowds came out in huge numbers. Possibly too much sun was had. You can’t really tell but I’m heat sick as anything in this photo.

Thank you so much to everyone who came out and said hi, and all the wonderful people who make the event happen. Special thanks to TOAE volunteers, sponsors, jury and staff, and the friends and family who did time helping out in my booth (like my mom, pictured above!). It was a great weekend and wouldn’t have been possible without all of you.

I just dropped off my six pieces for Graven Feather‘s ¬†ambitious group show IN THE ROUND. Over 100 artists submitted six works each to the show, all available for $35 a piece. This is a great chance to get some affordable art for your Christmas/Holiday list!

I have 15 new pieces (including Catskull Rosebud) up at Graven Feather this month as part of their residency show Made Here. Four of the first participants in the studio/gallery’s new residency program are showing, and it’s fascinating to see how we’ve all incorporated printmaking into our work. Everyone had different levels of press experience, and different ways of working. For me it was great to have the chance to bring printmaking back into my practice, as I’ve mostly been painting since I left school. The show’s up all month, so there’s lots of chances to check it out. The reception is July 25th, and most of the artists will be in attendance.

I’m also very excited to have the super talented Stacey Boag come take some photos of my work the show this month. Soon you’ll be able to see my work in decent lighting and not on my studio table. What a concept! Stacey’s an amazing portrait photographer, particularly of children. Be sure to check out her site if you’re looking for some fabulous photos of your little ones.
