Kawartha Artist Gallery and Studio is currently hosting a show for photography members. Sadly, the show ends this Thursday. At the opening reception, I had the opportunity to meet some of the new photography members. In a number of instances, we all love to photograph the same type of things. It's so much fun to just 'shoot the breeeze' with other photographers. Every time this happens, I learn something new of a 'tip of the day' if you will. Congratulations to three new amazing photographer that joined the group....Rick Doner, Angela Slater and Michael Eckersly..welcome and all the best!
The quality of the work is really wonderful and it's great fun to 'sit' for a segment of time at the gallery and watch when people come in what they gravitate towards. It reconfirms that you 'shoot' what you like and see and there will be people who will love it. Never underestimate your own talent.
In the past few weeks, I've had the pleasure of meeting some amazing photographers and in the future hope to feature more Ontario artists.
I've spent time re-discovering so many wonderful artists on Etsy and my new 'addiction' is Pinterest. So-o-o-o much fun!
Here is a sampling of just a few of our local photographers work..really beautiful, intriguing pieces!
The past weekend was the Warkworth Maple Syrup Festival and Juried Art Show. I was fortunate enough to have two pieces entered. Unfortunately, neither sold. I was happy, however, for other members of the Spirit of the Hills Assoc. as a number of them sold pieces...yeah! Over the weekend, over 600 people came in to see our show. Wow, that's a fantastic weekend! The businesses also did quite well. I think the amazing weather helped!
Now running crazy to get the last minute details finished for a joint exhibit I'm doing with Anne Cavanagh(see my blog feature). We will be displaying at the Peterborough Regional Health Centre for almost thee months....great exposure...no pun intended!
