This weekend is the big event for all the members of the Ajijic Society of the Arts participating in Open Studios. There are 21 different locations with 57 artists providing demonstrations of their art work and studio environment. I will be participating at the Adobe Walls Inn. Last year was my first try at this and the owners of Adobe Walls were really gracious to allow us the use of their space to showcase our work. I am really looking forward to being there and seeing everyone during the weekend event. Check out more info on the Ajijic Soceity of the Arts facebook page as well as my Facebook page Artist Sonia Mocnik. I have a schedule listed of demos I will be completing during the event.
Check out the #opusdailypaintingchallenge and #opusdailypractice on twitter, instagram and facebook. For the next 29 days, they have create a challenge to encourage the artists in all of us! So look for my submissions and give me comments! I need a lot of inspiration as I prepare for this coming weekend and the other upcoming art shows including "Love is in the Air " with the opening reception February 13th at the Cultural Center Ajijic.
Don'the forget about the call for submission for the first Vancouver Watercolor Biennale. The International Watercolour society of Canada is setting a deadline of free online submission of one piece of watercolor on a full sheet of watercolour paper by March 1st. The event will be held in July and if your painting is accepted, you will need to matt it and send it to Vancouver with an entrance fee. It's worth trying, there is still an entire 28 days to submit.
