The final touches are in place for the opening of my solo exhibition tonight. Touch wood!
I left Maria, the gallery curator, busy unwrapping and hanging paintings at the gallery yesterday. It really is a gorgeous space to have an exhibit in an old heritage building in the heart of St. John's.
On Saturday, I'll be doing a talk at the gallery at 2pm to provide the background information, sketches and photos of boats and areas that inspired the paintings. I have a limited number of draft books that accompany the project that I'll be giving away at the talk. I'll also be making the book available as a free download from my website and an option to purchase a hard copy.
I hope to video the artist talk and have it available online and will try to do a short video of the paintings hung in the gallery for people unable to attend and/or in far flung places.
I did an interview with The Telegram, a local paper, about the exhibition and series which you can read here.

So start your engines, I'd love to see you at the opening tonight and/or talk on Saturday!
