“Abstractions” at Aurora Cultural Centre

Abstractions Show & Sale Poster

I was delighted with the venue and excellent curation of this show at the Aurora Cultural Centre!

Abstract painter Miiko (Barbara Gravlin) and I were teamed up by the ACC and I must admit our works looked just lovely together (see slideshow below).

I have also never had so much of my portfolio, including both stained and fused glass, in one place at one time. Curator Clare Bolton just about cleaned out my studio/gallery as well as my own pieces from my home.  You can see my earlier stained glass works that got me my start in this wonderful medium (in the “Red Room”) and my latest fused glass window and wall hangings and sculptural pieces (In the “Blue Room”).

I was especially impressed to see a municipally-owned institution like the ACC show such vision and risk taking to display and sell cutting-edge are like ours, that normally aficionados have to scout “The City” for.

Our artist talk, “Breaking the Rules” was a LOT of fun, and the afternoon sunlight illuminating the Red Gallery was magical.

Sales form this show have part proceeds going to the ACC. I am very happy to participate in this regard.
