Adrienne's nomination

One of the things I've been busy working on is a nomination for Adrienne Moore in the category of Arts Education for the inaugural Richmond Arts Awards. Margreth, Tanya and I put our heads together and decided to organize the nomination. We wrote up the main nomination, got letters of support and assembled the package in time for the deadline. We've just received the good news that Adrienne is one of the three finalists in her category - so now we just hope for the final announcement to be what we want!

Finn Slough Art Show

The annual Finn Slough Art Show is on this weekend. This non-juried show is always a lot of fun - lots of artists and photographers and lots of different styles- all on one subject- Finn Slough. This historic area of Richmond makes an interesting subject. Some paintings I have painted in other years are now in homes in such places as Calgary and Victoria - and as far afield as Germany. I've painted a new one for this year - with boats almost obscured by lush growth.
The reception is Friday from 7 to 9 pm in the Art Centre Lecture Hall. Refreshments - and come to see the kid's contributions - a great mermaid and a feather-covered swan!
