I am surfacing after a 6 month health issue, that has been long and arduous, but has also provided me with creative fodder for my upcoming show: “INSIDE MY WORLD: LARGE AND SMALL” at the Double Door Gallery, in Anten Mills, just north of Barrie, Ontario. The opening celebration will be from 6 – 9 pm, Friday, September 6th. Weekend hours are 12 – 4 pm. I will not be at the gallery on Saturday, Sept. 7th (family wedding), but should be there every other day the show is open.
My home studio will also be open on the Thanksgiving Weekend, from 11 am to 4 pm., Saturday October 12 – Monday October 14. Look for the red and white “Open Studio” road signs near 5253 Vasey Rd., Midland, ON L4R 4K3.
Please email or phone me with any comments or questions you may have.
Cheers! I hope to see you at the show and/or Open House.
OSA Artists Cathy Groulx and Josy Britton gave a wonderful artist talk at the Westland Gallery, led by Associate Director Danielle Hoevenaars. The talk was part of the current show Masterworks: A curated collection of work by members of the Ontario Society of Artists: Western Hub. The place was packed – standing room only – and both artists remained after the talk to answer questions and chat. We encourage everyone near London Ontario to make the trip to the gallery. The exhibition is very strong and this is the first time in several years that the OSA has had a show in the area. Thank you Westland Gallery!
The opening reception of the “Masterworks of the Ontario Society of Artists” exhibition at the Westland Gallery in London, Ontario featured beautiful and thought-inspiring Canadian art and lots of great conversation. Here are some photos:

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION This autumn, the Aird will celebrate finding a new location by offering a first CALL FOR ENTRY exhibition showcasing work by contemporary Canadian artists. The show will explore the theme of “cats” in their roles as domesticated animals and/or in their roles as mythic symbols of sexuality, divinity and magic.
Submission deadline: Saturday, August 24, 2019
The Cat Show invites entries of cat themed work of all kinds from artists at all stages of their careers.
Works in any medium will be considered, keeping in mind that dimensions can be no greater than 50.8 cm in any direction. This broad definition is intended to open the exhibition to entries reflecting a wide variety of contemporary techniques and practices.
