Blog - A Palette of Ideas - on being an artist

(posted on 8 Oct 2021)

Hi everyone,

Sending out an update on my fall exhibitions and teaching schedule.

Firstly I will not be joining the annual fall show at the Harris Barn due to my personal higher than normal risk even after vaccination.

I welcome people to get in touch with me directly this year, and hope to be back at the Harris Barn with everyone in person in 2022.

So for this fall:

October 8th -23rd  I have 5 pieces of work in the Sublime Fall Art Show at the Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall. Open Mall hours 9:30- 6 Mon to Sat and Sun 12-5. This show is always open and easy to view, with great space for physical distance.

October 8th -31st  I have 4 pieces of work in the 'Ode to Emily Carr' Show at Gallery 1710 at 1710 56th Street in Tsawwassen as part of the South Delta Artists' Guild's regular exhibition schedule and many guild members are also showing work. Gallery 1710 is open Fri - Sun 12-4 weekly until Oct 31.

Oct 16th - 24th I have work in the South Delta Artists' Guild's 'Artfully Anonymous' Annual Fundraiser! This show is exclusively ONLINE. So visit the South Delta Artist's Guild Website for the link and go in the morning of the 16th when the show opens, to purchase. All artwork remains anonymous until you have purchased and paid! Every piece is 10" x10" and every piece is $100.00. For many artists this represents a significant decrease over their regular price for that size.

As always I have two supportive shop owners who carry my work.

Art and Soul Craft Gallery on Galiano Island sells a variety of sizes of my work both in the store and the owner is willing to ship. Sizes start with minis and go up.

Muddy River Landing in the Ladner Village sells a variety of sizes of my work.

I have lots of new work added to my website this last year as I have been busy all year with art making.

Because of my risk I cannot teach in person workshops, but since the pandemic began, I have been hosting a Drop In on Zoom on Thursday afternoons from 1-3 pm with paid instruction. From 3-4 pm there is an hour where people can continue to paint and socialize, and others can enter the room for social connection. Please contact me through my website for more info, cost, or to be added to the weekly invite list.

If you have any questions about particular pieces or Christmas gifts please don't hesitate to email me

Wishing everyone a safe and Happy Thanksgiving

Cheers

Monica
