My exhibition preparations are almost finished, with set up being this weekend, word is getting out about my exhibition. There is a short feature in the newest issue of Canada’s alternative art weekly blog, Things of Desire. Mike Landry, the editor/creator of ToD, interviewed me over the phone from Halifax, and I spoke to him about where I was coming from with this exhibition and the different series of paintings that I will be showing. The self-portrait that I have been hinting at in the last few weeks’ posts is also previewed in this article. You can read the full article at here. You can also subscribe to the blog, which talks about art exhibitions across Canada in a new issue every Thursday.
In other news, I also got a brief mention in the Kingston Arts Diary blog. The Kingston Art Prize exhibition has just closed in Kingston and is on it’s move to Wolfville, Nova Scotia now. My painting The Return Home will be exhibiting at the Acadia University Art Gallery from November 6 – December 10. This will be the tour’s only East Coast stop, so if you are in the area, please drop by and have a look. If you can’t make it, the gallery of finalists is now available online. It’s great to see the amazing range of styles and that portraiture is still alive and kicking!
