I am very thrilled that the jurors of the Society of Canadian Artists have selected two of my pieces for the SCA 48th Open National Juried Exhibition, “Large Works Show”, which will take place at the Etobicoke Civic Centre Art Gallery from July 17 to August 11, 2016. The two pieces, “Shodo” and “Cheltenham Badlands, Study 1”, are part of my series, “Tranquility“, first seen at Abbozzo Gallery in 2015, and both part of the Saks Fifth Avenue collections at the Toronto Eaton Centre and Sherway Gardens stores. The opening reception will be on Sunday, July 17th from 2 to 4pm at the centre, located at 399 The West Mall Toronto ON M9C 2Y2.
I am proud to donate a print to the Brain Injury Society of Toronto for their Birdies for Brain Injury Golf Tournament silent auction on June 24, 2016 at Lionhead Golf & Country Club in Mississauga. The print, “Seclusion” is sized 8 x 8″ framed under anti-reflective ArtGlass to 17 x 21″ and is valued at $600. Part of my Georgian Bay and Muskoka series, the photograph was made on the shores of the Georgian Bay in Dillon, Ontario, north of Parry Sound. It features a silhouette and reflection of pine trees on an island across the water. If one looks very closely, a hidden cottage is revealed among the trees. The print is also available in three other sizes: 20 x 20″, 36 x 36″, and 48 x 48″, in editions of 10, 10, and 5, respectively.
