Starting from the observations of writers that women's roles have been in some ways rolled back to the expectations of an earlier era due to the effects of pandemic lockdowns and school closures, the Kitchen Feminism project asked a diverse group of women to reflect on the ways they perceived their own lives to have been sent back in time by the pandemic: Mom I need this space for my zoom meeting! From the Kitchen Feminism Project, courtesy producer Dawn Van de Schoot, photographer Shannon Smith and stylists Nicole Does Makeup.

A New Partnership with Abstract Art Canada.

Art Sales, Events & Announcements
As of November 2021 I am excited to be showing my Fun Money series of abstract paintings alongside the artists of Abstract Art Canada. Fun Money: Can I Lick It? (Guilty Pleasures), Debbie.lee Miszaniec This autumn I was invited by artist Jim Ulrich to show my abstract art through a new art e-commerce venue, Abstract Art Canada. I was impressed by the small and targeted selection of artists represented through Abstract Art Canada, the focus on learning more about the artist, as opposed to being just another sales portal, and the truly supportive interaction with the Abstract Art Canada team! Check it out, make a purchase, support Canadian Art and let yourself be transported out of your everyday, without even leaving home!

Medium of Exchange Closing Reception Livestream

Medium of Exchange Closing Reception Livestream

Events & Announcements, The Story Behind the Painting, What's the Big Idea?

While the gallery tested it earlier in the day and it worked at that time, when the actual time of the event was upon us we were not able to stream the event from the gallery page. This necessitated about a half hour of frantic typing and texting and posting to cancel the scheduled event and create a new one on the galleries programming page and redirect viewers to the new event. I managed to post redirects for anyone coming to the event through links from my One Life Fine Art page or my personal profile, however I am…
