Upcoming exhibition - Beginnings
The local art group that was formed earlier this year is holding its first exhibition - Beginnings - in a few weeks. With time fast approaching, the push is on to finalize pieces for the show and do all the last minute things to make sure things go smoothly. I have just one more piece to choose and am torn between a couple, one depending on whether or not I want to frame yet another piece.
This summer exhibition and sale, will be held in the historic Masonic Temple, which was built in 1885 and is now designated a Registered Heritage Structure. It seems I have a penchant for old buildings as my gyotaku workshop was held in the Anna Templeton building, a National Historic site. structure. Our first exhibition introduces ten original pieces of work from each artist. Subjects range from gyotaku fish prints and seascapes to florals and traditional landscapes with mediums encompassing printmaking, mixed media to watercolours and oils.
The exhibition runs from July 24th to August 13th at Masonic Temple, 6 Cathedral Street, St. John's. It is open from 10am - 4pm weekdays and 1 - 4pm on weekends.
The opening reception with all artists present, will be held from 2 - 5 pm Sunday July 24th. Come along, we'd love to see you there!
