Not all events are local. So, some travel the province and some even venture out beyond the borders. Keeps me busy.
With the easing of restrictions we are entering a new era of what it means to be artist. Many, if not all exhibitions these days are either physical, digital and usually both. I am happy to say we do have some physical shows taking place, along with the digital displays. My work does not translate well on the internet. Twelve layers of paint are largely invisible. Do check out the events below.
I must admit to being remiss with this event. It is closing soon, Friday, 4th September in fact. I have four other pieces showing as well. Do drop in between 10am and 5pm at 9103 95th Ave, Edmonton.
Edmonton-Kaleido Festival Gallery
This one even has an opening reception! The Carrot Community Arts Coffeehouse (9351 118 Ave) is hosting this event from September 1st to 27th with the reception on September 11th from 7pm to 9pm. Please book a time to guarantee your spot.
A sampling of a larger exhibition from DDK (Doris Charest, Danièle Petit and Karen Blanchet) entitled “Urban Surprises/Le sauvage dans l’urbain”, this show includes something new from the trio: sculpture. From September 11th to October 23rd. Drop in at CAVA 9103 95 Street from 10am to 5pm Tuesday to Saturday. A digital opening reception will be available shortly.
Edmonton – St. Joseph’s College, UofA
Several paintings from “Connections” and “Wildwood” are on display at St. Joseph’s College, right across the road from the Butterdome on the University of Alberta’s campus. At the moment the college has closed its doors to the public. Hang tight, it will open again soon.
Private events: “Inspirations”
“Inspirations”, the lovely gallery adjoining Karen’s studio space (12936 108 Street NW, Edmonton AB Canada) offers a preview of her latest work. Give her a ring (780-761-7262) and set up a date for a private viewing.
Events outside Alberta
Over the summer I have been very busy with the Federation of Canadian Artists having shown in a number of their events. I forgot to post them. Scenes from Western Canada is one of their most popular calls for submission and I am fortunate to have five pieces showing in this event. Four are online with one in the Granville Is. Gallery, 1241 Cartwright St. Vancouver. The show opens tomorrow August 31st and runs to September 13th. You can have an early peek here.
