new sculpture

just finished a new sculpture of Ed. Quite an intricate pose, wish I could submit it to the next juried show. It would be risky, it still has to dry and be fired!

visit to Art Toronto 2012

Last Sunday we were invited by The Art Gallery of Mississauga to visit Art Toronto as part of our Artist Professional Practice course. Tickets were reserved for us, we had a chance to see what galleries were doing and showing. Very interesting!
One more show at the Wellington Artists Gallery, "Deck the Walls" from October 30 -- November10.

Just had an e-mail telling me my sculpture "Singing" received the Jurors Choice Award at the Dam gallery in Alton.
The show is called Equinox and runs from October 24 to November 25.
In September another sculpture of mine, "Iron Woman" got 3. price at th juried show at the Wellington Artists Gallery, this exhibition ends this weekend.

SoJin Chun, an artist and educator at gallery 44 gave us hints on writing an Artists statement and Proposal.

Almost ready for the Tour!

Tomorrow my first guest artist will set up for the big weekend. We had such great days, but they predict rain for the weekend, hope they are wrong!

"Duty" day at the Wellington Arts Gallery

Just changed my display here, i will take home some sculptures to get ready for the Studio Tour. Walked through the Sculpture Park, just love this, the perfect spot to display sculptures.

just found out that my sculpture"Warrior Woman" was accepted in the Wellington Artist's Gallery juried show. Now I have to find a suitable display stand for it...

Fired my kiln!

All my new pieces came through fine, this was a bisque firing, they will have to go in once more!
