And the Tide Turns

And the Tide Turns

I’ve been hunkered down and quiet the last while, for a number of reasons. Travel – back west and then back east – for the AGM of Visual Arts Alberta – CARFAC, and for a memorial service in Calgary. Work – finishing up some experiments in cyanotype (!), and writing a grant report. Taking a […]

Last Week for the Exhibition!

Last Week for the Exhibition!

I’m a little boggled by how the days have passed by since our exhibition opened.  Just this week, and I’m back to Parrsboro to take down the show, and pack it all up for shipping. I’ve been really quite chuffed by the feedback we have been getting on the work. Our lovely hosts at Main […]

Our exhibition is officially open! Had a lovely time at the opening reception yesterday afternoon; some great conversations with people, and a good turn out!

Post-Performance, Pre-Exhibition

We had a marvellous time on Sunday, presenting “Macromareal Prelude: In Fog and Storm and Rain” ! Everything fell into place so beautifully – we had planned to present at the beach, but the forecast pre-empted that idea – but Plan B turned out to be so great! No regrets there! Deep thanks to all […]

A Visitor!

A Visitor!

Had a lovely visit from fellow artist Emily Jan! She was in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick on a short visiting-friends-and-seeing-new-things holiday, and fortuitously, it worked out that she could come to Parrsboro for a couple of days. We started at Partridge Island and the beach below Ottawa House, and then headed out to First Beach […]
