This week, I'm getting together paintings for my one-man exhibition at Sunbury Shores Arts & Nature Centre. The theme for the show is "Buildings in the Landscape." Although I paint the natural landscape, I love painting buildings, too. The older and more rickety, the better! All of the paintings will feature buildings, but in some of them, the presence of man's hand will be subtle. I plan to include one painting where I challenge you to find the building in it.
We'll have an opening reception, too. The reception will be Friday, July 20th, from 5-7 pm Atlantic Time at Sunbury Shores, 139 Water Street, St Andrews-by-the-Sea, New Brunswick. I hope you'll all come! I plan to arrive by boat with friends, direct from Campobello Island. I'm looking forward to both the boat ride and the show.
The show will run from July 20-August 14th. If you can't make the reception, I hope you'll be able to stop in. I've included here a few of the paintings you can see.
During the last week of the exhibition, I'll be teaching a four-day course in St Andrews. It will be "Plein Air Sketch to Studio." In this workshop, we'll spend half the day in the field gathering reference material and the other half in the studio creating paintings from this material. The workshop is for all levels and all media. Cost is $295 ($275 for members) + HST. Contact Sunbury Shores to register: www.sunburyshores.org, firstname.lastname@example.org, 506-529-3386
