Sooke Harbour Art

At Sooke Harbour House last weekend, I was delighted to be surrounded by wonderful art. When I asked where I could see the gallery, I was told “Everywhere!” and so it was. I wandered around the several floors and hallways and found a great collection of local artists to enjoy. Highlights: Jill Winstanley: Lisa Hebden:…

Show Submission

I am submitting to a juried show! (Gulp.) artEAST is calling for entries along the theme “Lines, Letters, and Love” and I think this piece is a good fit. It’s a digital collage that I transferred to canvas. The layers include a wedding photo of my great-grandparents and a scan of my grandparents’ marriage certificate….

Acrylic Transfers

Digital photographs, composition, and manipulation are great fun, but I do miss the hands-on aspect of art. I’m playing with acrylic transfers as a way to combine both worlds. I’ve tried transfers before, as a way to incorporate imagery into collage pieces. But this article posted by Blue Mitchell reminded me that I could use…

Calendars and Cards and Prints, Oh My!

My most recent work is now available at RedBubble, which looks to be a great artist community with some fun format options. RedBubble offers framing, canvas prints, and greeting cards, as well as matted, laminated, or mounted prints. But I think my favorite is the calendar! It’s always updated to the current year. Check them…

Twittering for a Good Cause

Call for Twitter artists: details here. Please join us! An artist I follow on Twitter, David Sandum, had a fabulous idea. He’s asked all his Twitter friends (and their friends, and so on…) to submit postcard art for a global show. He’ll be displaying the works at his local library in Moss, Norway, who will…

Fast + Borrowed = Bad?

Thanks to Escape into Life for the pointer to the essay. I’m new to digital manipulation, but I’m discovering that of course, others aren’t. The question is, does digital work make art too easy? In this essay, Eric William Carroll suggests that borrowed images mashed together quickly make for bad art. …just because the search…

A Show? A Show!

I have been offered my own show at Sightline Institute, and I’m giddy with excitement! First up: getting my 2010 portfolio into display format, as it exists only as bits on my computer until I print it. See the Art and Sustainability blog for more information about the space. Details to follow, but will probably…

Art in San Francisco

My recent trip to SF was ostensibly to meet up with my brother and sister-in-law, but I managed to make it into quite an art trip as well. My thanks to Sue’s patience and flexibility as we explored museums and galleries. Modern Art After an overview of the city’s architecture, wind, and fog via double-decker…
