Arts Northeast Beginnings Now Open!

The Opening Reception was held on Sunday, July 24th from 2-5pm at the historic Masonic Temple. It was a lovely sunny day, despite the thunder, lightning and rain that started the day off.

Spirit of Newfoundland provided refreshments....the food was FABULOUS and the wine and juice was great as well. I think everyone went away with a nice snack after perusing the 40 pieces of art.

The exhibition and sale runs daily until August 13....drop by and check it out Monday-Friday 10am-4pm and weekends 1-4pm. Of course you can always see the artwork when you catch a show (now playing - Groovy and Patsy Cline).

The winners of an original piece of art (4 giveaways - one by each of us) will be announced at the end of the show. Stay tuned....see details at the Masonic Temple.

Arts Northeast - Beginnings has Opened!

Although the day started off with thunder, lightning and hard rain, the sun came out for the opening reception of Arts Northeast - Beginnings.

Thanks to all of my co-workers (former and current), students, friends, and my parents for taking the time out of their busy schedules to support me at the opening reception of Arts Northeast. It is greatly appreciated and will not be forgotten.....

And thanks so much to Spirit of Newfoundland (especially Paul and Renee) for all of their help....the food was FABULOUS (yes, it deserves big boldness) and I heard the wine was great too (seeing I don't drink, I had to rely on others for the wine critique!).

Winners of the original paintings will be announced at the end of the show.

For those who could not make it to the opening - THERE IS STILL TIME!

The show runs until August 13, Hours are Monday-Friday 10am-4pm and Saturday & Sunday 1-4pm daily. And if you are there for one of Spirit of Newfoundland's fabulous shows (Feeling Groovy or A Closer Walk), you can still see the artwork as well!

The Day Before

So, this morning, the 4 artists (including myself) and some helpers, descended upon the historic Masonic Temple on Cathedral Street. With 40 pieces of art between us...ranging in size from 8" x 16" to 36" x 36" and various mediums, there is quite a splash of colour now gracing the walls of the main floor of the building.

I think we did a fine job putting the artwork up...no arguments or anything! And I can't believe how quickly we got everything accomplished!

Tomorrow is the big day! Beginnings is aptly titled as it is the beginning of something good....

Hope to see you all tomorrow....2-5pm 6 Cathedral Street....

One more painting to go....

Well sort of...one more to finish that needs to be framed for the show starting July 24. Two more to finish that don't need to be framed...well sort of for that as well.....

I'm heading to the framer tomorrow and will take the night off from painting and then will finish the others this weekend.....then I'll get to do some other things that need to get done!

I'm debating adding a critter to the Grass is Greener painting.....ladybug, spider, grasshopper, lizard....or other....what do you think? Here's the painting again for reference.....

Arts Northeast marks its Beginnings with a summer exhibition

Beginnings marks the inaugural exhibition of a recently formed visual art group – Arts Northeast.  Artists Randy Blundon, Jeanette Jobson, Brenda Rowe, and Michelle Whitten LaCour created the group in 2011 to provide support and networking, as well as exhibition opportunities.
This summer exhibition, in the historic Masonic Temple, introduces ten original pieces of work from each artist.  Each artist shows their view on the natural world around them in subjects ranging from gyotaku fish prints and seascapes to florals and traditional landscapes.  Mediums encompass printmaking, mixed media, watercolours to oils and  present the viewer with the broad range of styles and experience that is evident in this group.

Check out my website and the websites of my fellow group members....
