Last week I was contacted by the City of Calgary, regarding the selection of one of my paintings to be enlarged and reproduced permanently on one of the transit shelters for the 17th Ave SE BRT public transit development. I am super excited to be working with the City on this and can’t wait to see what Pancake Breakfast looks like enlarged and in the public space! I will make sure to take and post pictures when this goes ahead.
I am pleased to say that the Sunflower Project is growing yet again!
The wish 150 Alberta Mosaic Sunflower has been selected by the Multifaith Action Society for inclusion in their 2019 Multifaith Calendar. The 2019 theme is Coming Together: Exploring New Connections. As the aim of the sunflower project is to create bridges of good will and the growth of positive action, I felt that the Sunflower Project would be a great fit for the Multifaith Calendar. I am also honoured to be recognized and included as an artist of no faith (by choice), by the inclusion of my work in the calendar.
” Founded in 1972, the Multifaith Action Society (MAS) is a Canadian registered charity dedicated to the facilitation of interfaith education and dialogue. For over forty years, MAS has worked to build bridges between the myriad cultural and spiritual communities that characterize British Columbia, and has collaborated on a wide variety of public education campaigns and initiatives that have affected positive social change while raising awareness of multicultural issues.”
I believe that the effort to promote understanding between cultures and faiths is a good and worthy one. Therefore I am happy to have the Sunflower Project featured in a fundraising initiative which will be supported by individuals who also believe in affecting positive social change across cultures and faiths.
I will make sure to let you know when the calendars become available for purchase!
Watch you in boxes!
Medium of Exchange is planning a 10 year anniversary show for January 2020.
Will we revisit our thoughts on the inspiration of the first exhibition; Margaret Atwood’s book Payback: Debt and the Shadow Side of Wealth (2008)?
Will we create collaborative paintings, like each of the above, and auction them for charity?
Will we talk to our former selves, or give warning to those who come after? After all, hindsight is 20/20.
Certainly not us (yet).
I will give updates as the planning gets underway for this event.
I am pleased to announce the selection of five of my pieces for inclusion in the 2018 Calgary Stampede Western Showcase Art Gallery. Find the art at the Western Oasis on the Calgary Stampede grounds where the paintings will be on view and available for sale. If you are scheduling your visit, stay tuned for announcements regarding my participation in Artist InSite, the Western Showcase Art Gallery program set up to allow visitors to meet the artists and see them in action. I will post details and relevant links as they become available.
