Beautiful Books and Art Go So Well Together!

Summer begins tomorrow - it's a great time to get out and about and take in some fabulous art, including Book Art!

The Contemporary Book Arts in Eastern Ontario show runs June 21 to July 20. It would be lovely to see you at the Opening Reception, June 21 from 5 to 7 pm.

I am so thrilled to be a part of this gorgeous book arts show of more than 13 Eastern Ontario artists, including my talented partner, Larry Thompson of Greyweathers Press!

The show is at the Marianne van Silfhout Gallery,
located at St. Lawrence College, Brockville Campus
2288 Parkedale Ave, Brockville, ON
Gallery hours: Tue - Fri, 10 am to 8 pm | Mon & Sat, 10 am to 4 pm
For information: Gallery@sl.on.ca | 613-345-0660 ext. 3636

The From Here to Infinity Gallery is now open. Larry and I are honoured to be part of a select group of artists to launch this wonderful "gallery plus rare-and-used book store"! Books and art together... does it get any better? Larry's lino prints, wood engravings and hand-made letterpress books are on display and for sale, as are my Altered Images.

Altered Images are mysterious and evocative. They “float” inside their deep frames, catching the eye and inviting closer inspection. I create this intriguing digital art by layering photographs, captured with my iPhone, with images of my original mixed media paintings. I work with Photoshop and iPhone apps, losing myself in the process of discovery as I build layer upon layer. Take a closer look at my Altered Images over at my website.

From Here to Infinity Gallery
is located at 213 King St.W., Brockville, ON


This is a good place to remind you that I am teaching Mixed Media Art & Book Workshops in and out of my Studio this Summer. Take a look here and if you find one (or more!) that appeals to you, sign up quickly to make sure you get a spot... there are 8 spots in each of my Studio Workshops. The upcoming out-of-my-studio Wintergreen Muse Journal Workshop is especially wonderful - a retreat weekend in the country while you make your very own book!

If you have any questions about a Workshop, please do send me an email and I will get right back to you. :)
