One World, Atlas Affair Jan.30!

This Saturday, Jan.30th! The highly anticipated Gabriola Arts Council Atlas Affair event happens.

Last fall the Gabriola Arts Council gave participating island artists a map or atlas as inspiration to create an artwork for this show.

I didn't have an idea for this until late December.

I was finishing up orders and wrapping up my year end. I didn't have any creative brain power for a new project with a theme at that time. I did have an idea that perhaps a signpost would work with the theme of maps.

I gave myself time and space and in early January and I started making the glass signs you see below.

Shortly after I made the first few signs I knew that it could work and Ode started to make the steel post. I ordered super strong rare earth magnets (from Lee Valley) to hold the glass to the steel.

This way the piece can be easily moved, and the signs are interchangeable. I think that makes it kinda FUN.

Our piece will be one of many original ART works to be auctioned at the event! It is exciting and fun. Last year sold out, so get your tix NOW!

Hope to SEE you there!

Gabriola Artworks Show 2013

This has been an amazing and FULL summer ! Wowza!! 

 I am excited to show you a few pix of my last show...this was the show I shared with the amazing artists Grant Leier and Sheila Norgate....
I am thrilled and honoured to be sharing the stage with these two artists as they have both been mentors and inspirations for me from early on in my art journey.
Kathy Ramsey, owner of Gabriola Artworks really outdid herself in setting up this show, the gallery looks splendid! ( show runs until September 5)
I will share pix of Sheila and Grant's work in a later post....this one is mainly showing you some of my very newest art creations! 
I am very grateful for the wonderful art supporters in this world. Thank YOU!
