“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.

Now showing at The Bartlett Gallery at Alton Mill Arts Centre

I am quite simply … delighted … that the curators of renowned Bartlett Gallery located within the historic Alton Mill in Caledon, Ontario have taken to my work.

Starting today, coincident with the Mill’s 3rd annual Fire & Ice Festival, a multitude of my fused glass sculptures, window & wall panels, decorative platters, and including my “soft gothic” stained glass work are on display and for sale.

The Mill is a wonderful destination that includes several galleries and resident artist studios.  The Bartlett Gallery, set within the rejuvenated 19th century mill and factory, is about an ideal display location that I could imagine for my work!

Trinitas: Collaboration with Ernestine Tahedl with “pARTners” O.A.C. Programme

Fellow King artist Ernestine Tahedl and I produced a collaborative fused glass sculpture as part of a premiere developmental programme developed and sponsored by the Ontario Arts Society and the Woodstock Gallery.

It was held:

Saturday November 19th, 2:00 pm
The Woodstock Art Gallery
449 Dundas Street
(click for map here)
(click here for invitation)

The programme saw multiple venues for exhibit, including the Aurora Cultural Centre and the John B. Aird Gallery in Toronto.

Click here for the full tour schedule.

But in addition: The City of Woodstock was be celebrating the official opening of the new Woodstock Gallery at this venue. City, Federal and Provincial representatives who funded this new, world-class cultural asset will be on hand for the plaque unveiling.

The image below of Trinitas was the first released image of our work, to compliment the two images published in the catalogue.

Ernestine prepared a full colour catalogue for the tour that could be viewed free and purchased online, or at the launch.

I prepared a separate post that talks in some detail with images about the programme and our test sculpture “Two Solitudes” that resulted in “Trinitas”. Click here to read it.

We’re happy to say that Two Solitudes sold at the recent Schomberg Village Street Gallery to a private collector. The original intent for pARTners was for all ten collaborative pieces to be auctioned at the Woodstock launch; it was decided that ownership would stay with the artists.

Trinitas is available for sale directly from us, including the custom mirrored base that supports the pieces.

An individual work of all artists tours with the show. In my case, Deco! (click here for more on this piece) was also on display, and is available for sale.
