Alberta Culture Days 14 days and counting...

It has been a while since I posted and quite a bit has happened. I participated in the Kaleido Family Arts Festival which was a great success with wonderful weather and strong support. I was very fortunate to sell my pastel work that was shown at the Nina Haggery Centre during this festival.

 I am now preparing about the Alberta Culture Days which will be held on September 30 from 10-3 p.m. in the Red Barn/Ottewell Centre (Sherwood Park). I hope to showcase some of my photography, pastel works and my fused glass pieces. Hope that many will stop by for a visit and a chat!!

Getting into Photography

During my visit to Drumheller last week I started to take some photographs at the Atlas Coal Mine. I have decided to frame a couple of these photos to see the public response. For the others, I will simply mat them for sale. I am hoping to have some of these photos in the Loft Gallery, Sherwood Park for the months of September and October.

Provincial Show in Sherwood Park-An Invitation

Yikes! It has been a while since I posted anything on my blog what with holiday travel, making sour cherry jam and family sickness (awful summertime colds) taking up most of my time in the last few weeks. I haven't even been able to get to do any art (although I am determined that next week I am setting time aside NO MATTER WHAT). I do want to mention that there is the Alberta Community Art Clubs Association show being held in Sherwood Park @ the Red Barn/Ottewell Centre, This show highlights winners from the three zone shows. It runs from July 19 to August 13 with the Red Barn being open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10-4. I was lucky enough to have a couple pieces in the show( although they did not win at the zone level). So, if you want to see some great art from across the province come on out!

Hidden Treasures Open Studio is now over

The last two days were long but fruitful with many people coming out to the Red Barn/Ottewell Centre to see some great art. Thank you to everyone who came out! It was great to fun. And many people entered the draw for my door prize but, unfortunately, only one individual walked away with my fused glass pendant necklace.

And now I am off working on a series for an upcoming juried show. I will post images when the series is complete.
