The opening of At Odds on Thursday was great fun. Lovely evening, and a really nice turn out, despite the cold. Thanks to everyone who made the trek, and special thanks to everyone at the Art Gallery of St Albert!
I feel I am in really great company in this exhibition – Susan Seright’s book works and Claire Uhlick‘s paintings are lovely. If you are in the Edmonton-St. Albert area, come by the gallery and see for yourself – the exhibition is up until March 1 2014.
It was really good to see the new work that I’d done this autumn in Halifax up in a gallery setting, along with some of the earlier work in the series. Came away with lots of new ideas, and a better sense of refinements that I want to make. Got some really valuable feedback on the work, both at the opening, and in the last couple of days. It’s a brilliant thing to be able to get that kind of input. Sometimes, it’s difficult to get the distance one needs to really see the work, so that’s when knowing there are solid, critical voices one can trust out there – a real community – becomes incredibly important, and valuable.
A couple of nice articles/interviews about the show too – The Leader and The Gazette both did preview pieces on the show.
Here’s a few pictures from the Opening – apologies for the poor quality – shot with my phone, on the fly, during the event!
I saw the show, right in time…looked amazing! What a great group..
Glad you got a chance to see it Trisia! Yes, it was a good combination. I feel I was in very very good company.
It does look fabulous! Wish I could see it in person. Beautiful work, Sydney! (I see you are back in Edmonton)
Thanks so much Karen! I’m still working with the material – it feels like there’s still so much to be done. Definitely work in progress, but I’m happy with it overall so far. Yes, back in the land of ice and snow and windchills of -30. (truth to tell, it feels warmer her than it did some days in Halifax! So I can’t complain…much :) ) You must be in shock after the Bahamas!
looks fabulous – well done!
Thanks so much Emily!
