Botanical Artists of Canada 2017 Juried Exhibition – Closes July 26, 2017

Just a reminder that there is less than 1 week left to view the BAC 2017 juried exhibition at the Robert Langen Art Gallery in the Library, Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo, Ontario. As one visitor noted … it is certainly worth the trip to Waterloo. I will be sitting the exhibiton on Sunday, July 23rd from 11 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Plan your visit then. The exhibition closes on Wednesday, July 26th at 12:00 noon.

I’m excited that my piece – “Spring’s Harbinger” – Pussy Willow ~ Salix discolor was awarded 3rd place!

Botanical Artists of Canada 2017 Juried Exhibition, July 5 to 26, 2017

 

The Botanical Artists of Canada (BAC) invites you to its upcoming 2017 juried exhibition titled:

A Celebration of Canada’s 150th Anniversary through its Native and Indigenous plants. 

The Botanical Artists of Canada is presenting a Juried Botanical Exhibition of Paintings and Drawings depicting native and indigenous plants of Canada.  The exhibition will celebrate the existence, beauty, uniqueness and diversity of Canada’s native and indigenous plants (including fungi); connect people with plants and botanical art through the artist’s creative expression; and inform the public of how our native plants sustain our lives, our habitat and the natural world.

Hope to see you there!

FENIX Art Exhibition, Fayetteville, Arkansas

FENIX Art Exhibition

On our way from the Fayetteville market on Saturday, April 8th, we happened upon the opening reception of a 3-week art exhibition by Fenix Fayetteville (an artist and artisan collective in Northwest Arkansas) in conjunction with Experience Fayetteville.  The art exhibition was the first event to be held in the Walker-Stone House*.  The works of 29 artists on display included paintings and drawings, photography, sculptures, ceramics, installations and mixed-media.

I was intrigued by the silverpoint and watercolour pieces by Karla Walden Caraway.  Silverpoint drawing is a technique I would like to learn more about.

Artist Janis Gill Ward also drew by attention with her loose (somewhat abstract) watercolour pieces (below).

The art exhibition was an unexpected yet quite delightful experience.  We were glad that we took the time to “drop in”.

*Walker-Stone House, Est. 1845, Fayetteville, Arkansas

The nearly 6,000 sq. ft. house was built in 1845 by Judge David Walker, an attorney who became one of the first justices on the Arkansas Supreme Court.  Walker built the home as a wedding present to his wife and they were married there.  In 1850, the house was sold to local merchant Stephen K. Stone who occupied it during the American Civil War (it was hit by Confederate cannon fire during the war) and for most of its history.  Stone’s grandson Edward D. Stone, a world-renowned architect, reacquired the house and began restoring it in the early 1970’s.  The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
