Plus 1 in NY

The group exhibition I will be participating in in New York opens next week at Sloan Fine Art.
The opening reception is Wednesday, July 6, from 6-8pm, and the show runs from July 7-28th.
Here is a link to the press release for the show.

It is called Plus 1. A selection of the gallery's artists were asked to each invite one artist to show along side them. The artist who chose me as his 'plus 1' is Montreal-based Brad Woodfin. I have been admiring his work for some time, and am so thrilled and honoured to be a part of this with him. His paintings are absolutely stunning! I wish I could visit NY for the opening, however I just don't have the time or funds to get there this summer. boo.

Here is the piece I made for the show, Pyrite 2, 10" x 10", oil on panel:
And here is some of Brad's incredible work (not specifically what will be in the exhibition):

Ibis, 16" × 20", oil on panel

Curlew, 8" × 10", oil on panel

Gerenuk, 12" × 9", oil on panel

Last weekend we went for a hike at a place we'd never been before. It was a beautiful spot, and such a relief to escape the city for an afternoon. I took many pictures, most of which turned out awful, thanks to the lovely, but much too-dim dappled light. But this series is quite magical, I think.

painting, painting, and more painting

Although you wouldn't know it from following this blog, I have been doing a lot of painting in the last bunch of months. I have wanted to keep most of it a surprise for the show in September, but here's a sneak peak of one I finished recently. The collection is coming together nicely; I have 10 pieces done now, and hope to get another 4 or so done by the end of the summer. 

A bit of exciting news: I was just invited to be part of a group exhibition in New York in July! I'm doing a new piece, which I am hoping to finish this weekend. I'll post more info about it soon.
