Great start to a long BC Day weekend! Harmony Arts Festival in West Vancouver begins officially today. At 6pm tonite, there are openings for the Silk Purse and the Ferry Building Gallery with fantastic art venues. The art Market starts at 2pm with more wonderful art, sculpture and textiles!
Art Beat begins officially in Ambleside and Dundarave business districts. Local businesses have joined with local artists to display and sell art and tomorrow July 30th, there will be special venues, buskers, art demos around the two business districts.
I am so pleased to display my watercolor in the silk purse and to be showing more work at "The Latest Scoop" - a new store in Dundarave.

More art activity is still happening elsewhere....I have work up until Aug 2nd at the Unitarian Church. At the Hycroft Gallery, more work is hanging until Sept 6th.
New activity is a plein air session that just happened with the Vancouver Sketch Club and Federation of Canadian Artists who met up at Dr. Sun Yet Sen Park in Downtown Vancouver on July 27th. It was a wonderul time to connect with other artists and meet new artists.
The next plein air activities that I'm involved in is:
August 6, 10-1pm at the Art Speak Tent and around Harmony Arts is the Grand Priz Plein Air Challenge. Looking forward to this as some of my favorite artist friends will be joining me! I know that Jan Poynter, Denise Maxwell and Susannah Paranich are participating...can't wait to find out who else will be there!
August 8th, along with other Federation of Canadian Artist, we will be enjoying the Hycroft Gardens from 2 to 7pm.
August 13th, 10- 12pm, plein air demo by myself and Artist Taylor Co. at Deer Lake Gallery in Burnaby as part of the Opening of From Land to Sea exhibition.
Once Harmony Arts is over, I have one more class to teach at Tapestry at Wesbrook and then..... I'm cruising with Cunard on the Queen Victoria and teaching art on days at Sea!!!!!
