On the evening of November 9, 2019, I will have a piece, Paynter’s Bay, as part of the Robert McLaughlin Art Gallery (Oshawa) fund-raising fine art photography auction, RMG Exposed. The proceeds of the sales will go to the support of free arts programming for kids, families, and those who face obstacles accessing art. Tickets are on sale at the RMG Exposed website.
A preview exhibition of the artwork in the auction will be held from November 2 to 9.
The Headwaters Arts exhibition, “Phenom“, is open now through October 6, 2019 at the Alton Mill Arts Centre in Alton, Caledon, Ontario. The exhibition includes six of Peter’s works: “Reaching”, “Red Sumac”, “Lakeside Sumac”, “Killarney Dawn”, “Three Pines” and “Three Cormorants”.
I will be at the Alton Mill from 10am to 5pm on Sunday, September 29 and would love to chat. Come for an autumn drive and spend an enjoyable time with art. There is a cafe on site for coffee, light meals and snacks.
An in-depth article about my work, the art business and artistic and life philosophy has been published in the Orangeville Citizen at this link: Photographer Peter Dusek is finding art’s way in business. Take a pause in your day, grab a coffee or tea, and have a good read. Thanks to journalist Constance Scrafield for the enjoyable interview and writeup.
I am truly honoured to be the recipient of the 2019 OSA President’s Medal, an award in recognition of artistic excellence and outstanding service to the Ontario Society of Artists. The OSA is Canada’s longest continuing art society, founded in 1872, and being a part of that great history is humbling. I am proud to serve as both an artist in the OSA and as Web Master on the executive board of directors.
