It was a fun, busy and productive Monday morning and I was very happy to deliver my painting to the Silk Purse Gallery and find out where I will be helping with the Community Art Project on Thursday.
I met fellow artist Leah Price and found out this will be her first time participating in the Harmony arts festival. Her event and demonstration will be on August 4th later in the afternoon and she is all about recycling! Her work is amazing so if you have time to take in her demonstration, check out the harmonyarts.ca website.
As always, it’s such a pleasure to see Master artist Alfonso Tejada, a wonderful mentor and great watercolourist. He dropped off his painting and had to be off somewhere, but his roles at the Festival are the Plein air Challenge - on August 3rd at 10am - still time to join in and participate! $35 registration but it includes muffins and coffee before and wine and cheese after and you can advance to the Paint on the Mountain event which is sponsored by British Properties and the prizes are fantastic! Alfonso is also demoing on August 6th and then with artist Brian Romer on August 11th at 3pM.
Thanks again to curator Steven Snider at the Silk Purse Gallery, he’s always so up Beat and enthusiastic and his energy abounds! He was repainting the gallery yesterday to prepare for the new show setup today!!!!
