White Water Gallery – National Juried Drawing Exhibition

November 20th, 2009

Last weekend I had the privilege of jurying White Water Gallery’s First National Juried Drawing Exhibition with Derek Liddington. (Derek is also a drawER. You should check out his stuff here)

The gallery received over 60 entries from across Canada and 23 artists representing communities including Halifax, Montreal, Toronto and North Bay were chosen for the exhibition. We received a wonderful response to the show of truly dedicated and engaged work. It is so exciting to see strong, contemporary drawing and even better to be a part of exhibiting it.

Derek and I were pleased to be able to award three awards for the exhibition – Best in Show and two Juror’s Choice Awards.

Liv Bonli was awarded Best in Show for her breathtaking drawing “Trip, 2009″. Her work is spare, but highly skilled and ultimately beautiful in its simplicity.

Mark Stebbins was awarded a Juror’s Choice for his intense and wonderfully involving piece “Data Cluster 3, 2009″.  From the moment I unpacked his colourful meticulous pieces, I couldn’t take my eyes off them.

And Robert Malinowski was awarded a Juror’s Choice award for his playful and provoking drawing “Sugar on Top, 2009″.  There is just something about those “spun-sugar-headed” ladies that are hard to resist.

White Water Gallery is located in North Bay, Ontario. If you get a chance to see this show I absolutely recommend it.

If you would like more information about the show, please contact the White Water Gallery.

This was the view from my booth on Saturday. We had lots of visitors and the weather was great (except for the intense thunderstorm that passed through Saturday morning, luckily I was under the running track).

For those of you that didn’t get a chance to come, this is what my booth looked like on the right side.

And, this is my booth on the left side.

Here are some images of the Jordan Art Gallery taken on the day of my opening. The opening reception went very well. Above is an exterior view of the gallery. Below is a view of one of my pieces through the front window (complete with onlooker).

The artists who run the Jordan Art Gallery are some of the nicest people I have had the pleasure of working with.  Here are a couple of snap shots of the show.

Mimic – new works

April 25th, 2009

Recently, I’ve been revisiting a series of ravens I started in 2005. This series is a collection of large charcoal drawings on paper.   Mimic I, II, and III are the newest additions, but I anticipate this series will continue to grow.

While making these drawings I have begun to think about how the act of drawing allows me to bring myself closer to my subject.  In this series, I am trying not to over think the work and just enjoy the process of drawing.
