STUDENT SHOW AT HUES – JANUARY 2017


As an artist, I’m always learning. Sometimes it’s through trial and error in my sketchbook or studio. Other times I’m inspired by studying with other artists – via video or live classes.

Our local Hue’s Arts Supply is a great place to learn. Paul and the crew arrange for local artists to deliver a variety evening workshops; and I’ve been fortunate enough to take two of them.

For the month of January 2017, Hues is generously mounting a show consisting of pieces created by students in these workshops.

I’ve contributed three pieces to the upcoming show: two abstract paintings I created in an Expressive WC Mark Making class taught by Anne McElroy, and one landscape painting I created in a WC class taught by Alison Montgomery.

You can see the show at Hues (1818 Lorne Avenue South in Saskatoon) during business hours from Monday to Saturday throughout the month of January.

If you’d like to chat with some of the artists about our work and learning, come join us for the Exhibit Reception on Saturday, January 7th from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Hope to see you there!

MUDSLINGERS GARDEN GALLERY 2016


Ten years ago, we opened our garden on O’Brien to host a fine group of artisans known as the Mudslingers in presenting their very first Garden Gallery. The idea was to display fine art and crafts – mostly pottery - in a natural setting, with the greens of the garden providing the backdrop.

The event was a great success, and the group has continued this annual tradition of staging an outdoor show. I’ve taken part as a guest artist in the past and will be doing so again this year.

The 2016 Garden Gallery date is just around the corner. This year’s event will be held on Thursday, August 18th from Noon to 7 pm in the beautiful gardens at 2422 Clarence Avenue S here in Saskatoon.

You’ll find pottery and glass works by Betty Gibbon, Paula Cooley, Ken Wilkinson, Diane Koshgarian, Lorraine Sutter and Roxanne Enns, as well as a selection of my watercolor paintings and abstract sculptures by another guest artist, Les Potter.

For a sneak peak at some of the paintings that will be in the show, please check the Pauseworks Studio Blog for 4 preview messages in the lead up to the show. The event takes place – rain or shine. We are of course, hoping for sunny weather – and we’re also hoping that you will drop by and join us for the show.

SKETCHES OF SASKATOON BOOK


In 2013, I published a collection of my sketches featuring the sites and scenes of Saskatoon.

The book was extremely well received. The first print run sold out in just 9 months; and SOS captured and held a spot on McNally Robinson’s Saskatoon Annual Top Ten Bestsellers List for three years running.

You can learn more about the book – how it came to be, what’s included in its pages, and how to get your copies - on the Sketches of Saskatoon dedicated website.
