Ready

My work is stacked up by the door, ready to go.
April is going to be a busy month. Busier than I've been in a long time actually, and that's a really good thing. With my work in two galleries I've been shuttling my work between the two, and not really getting out and promoting myself the way I used to. While I enjoy interacting with the curators, I miss the feedback I get from art fairs and small shows. And it's not like my work has been flying off their walls... the way people discover and purchase art have changed dramatically over the past few years, and it's been tricky for both artists and galleries to navigate the quickly changing landscape. I figured doing a few art fairs and local venues would be good for me, both from a promotional point of view and to get that feedback I've been lacking.

So, here's what's going on in April:

Sunday April 6th: Lakeshore Yacht Club's Annual Charity Art Show and Sale. A percentage of all sales goes to the Etobicoke Humane Society. It's from 12-4 in the clubhouse, and is open to the public. There will be about 10 artists there, with work varying from photography to stained glass. Pretty good turn out last year... I'm hoping this year will be better.

Saturday and Sunday April 12-13: Arts on the Credit Fine Art Show and Sale. I will be there with about 30 other artists, in the ballroom of the lovely Waterside Inn, in Mississauga, Ontario. I have a fairly large space, so I'm taking a good selection of work with me. And with the show being so close to home, I can take different pieces on each day.

Friday April 25th: Art in the CityAn evening of live jazz music, wine & cheese, and art created by local artists in the heart of Davisville Village. Drop in anytime between 7 and 10 pm at the Church of the Transfiguration, 111 Manor Rd. East, Toronto. I'm not sure how many artists will be there, but it sounds like a fun evening.

Hope to see you there. Be sure to stop by and say hello.
