Starting with the 2014 calendar year, I am a member of a cooperative of artists running the Foyer Gallery. Situated just inside the front entrance of the Nepean Sportsplex, the Foyer Gallery showcases original works of art created by a select group of visual artists from the Ottawa area. Gallery members work in a wide variety of media, ranging from oils, watercolours, acrylics, fibre art and photography to sculptural works in wood, metal, clay, marble and glass.
The first show in which I am involved starts this coming week. It is a group show with the theme Child’s Play and features work by the 7 new artists (3 pieces each) including me, plus a single work by each of the longer standing members of the gallery. I will be showing three images from my “Kites on White” series. The poster shows one of my images with the tail of the kite running across the whole poster. I’m really pleased to have my image shown that way in the advertisement.
A selection of greeting cards and matted prints by several members is also available for purchase.
Child’s Play runs from January 7 to 26.
Check the Foyer Gallery website for full details of hours and location.
