Share your experiences.....Excitement building here in anticipation of a friend's terrific solo art show opening at our public art gallery on the 19th -- today's headline images in our local paper "Lee Beaton to hold first solo show" features one of her beautiful works
Incredible gallery -- features a new exhibit or installation every few months, and showcases works from Manitoba and across the country. 200 running feet of wall space and approximately 1700 square feet of floor space.
Note -- most public galleries work 2 to 5 years ahead -- submitting proposal for juried submission, plannning & implementing a body of work to fill a space this size is one fine bit of focus & dedication....
Lovely praise, Carmen..........wonderful venue - we've enjoyed seeing your show there, and now your friend/student....to appear........wishing great success........looking fwd to a few images of Lee's artwork in situ. You're an inspiration, Carmen.........
Teaching -- works both ways -- so many artists have empowered & inspired me in the course of teaching....
Look forward to more joyful shares :)
From today: my husband teaches guitar part-time...one of his students came in in a sad mood -- our weather's gloomy today..drizzle and all that.
In no time flat, apparently -- they were improvising a jazzy, down tempo version of Jingle Bell Rock -- and the smile on my husband's face telling me about this no doubt was a mirror image of what the young man wound up wearing on his visage as an epiphany took hold.
To Rae's delight -- he exclaimed THIS is how I'm playing it at the Christmas concert!
Jeff -- thanks for reading it -- she's a paradigm for what it takes to 'get there' -- pro-active & passionate.
Exciting buildup in progress now -- they'll be hanging her show Monday while the gallery's closed -- opens Tuesday -- think the gallery will be packed to overflow for the official opening on Thursday :)
