Last Friday, I opened 'Natural Reflections', an exhibition of 15 fine art prints at Tangled Tree Framing & Gifts in Kenora. I really enjoyed chatting with folks about the works and my experiences making those images. It was particularly enchanting to chat with a very young girl about 'abstract art'. It's always encouraging to meet kids that are interested in art! The show will run from October 11 to November 9.
Next Friday, October 25, I will be in town again for a mid-show opening to coincide with 'Word On The Water' Book Festival from Oct. 25-27. I will be presenting on two seperate occasions on Saturday as well as leading a one-day photo workshop on Sunday.

Today is the last day of the Design-Art-Architecture-Expo (DAAX) for 2013. Ella Donnelley of infinite Interiors and I from The Canadian Gallery invite you to visit us at Booth 56 from 12 Noon until 5 PM this afternoon.
DAAX is a very classy show with many exhibits to experience. Exhibitors have put a lot effort into displaying their products for you to enjoy. If you are thinking of renovating or just want to see and experience some great decor ideas, come on down! From great finishing materials to art for the home or office, you are sure to find something to suite your taste. I personally have enjoyed visiting many of the booths and have discovered some great ideas for my own renovation plans. In the process, I have been inspired by some truly amazing art. Additionally, I learned a great deal from the many presentations about art and design.

A tour of the print exhibition 'Prairie and Beyond' is currently traveling through December 2014. Two shows have been created from the collection of 39 large-scale photographs which launched at Winnipeg's Pixels 2.1 Gallery: a smaller show (SS) of 12 photographs and a larger show (LS) of 26 photographs. Each show consists of different photographs.
