Nonesuch Art on Paper Awards

Fellow collage artist Elizabeth St-Hilaire sent me the info for this exhibition/contest, which is pretty funny since the exhibition is in Canada, and Elizabeth lives in Florida. The Nonesuch Art on Paper Awards looked like an interesting opportunity, so I decided to send a submission. Lo and behold, my collage ‘Reflections’ was accepted.

Reflections

The exhibition, which drew artists from around the globe, opened in Parrsboro, Nova Scotia in August and then traveled to Montréal, Québec, where it closes this Friday. Details below. Sorry to be so late getting this information out; things have been a bit crazy around here.

 Check out this very cool loft space where the Montréal leg of the exhibition is being held. Yes, those are enormous wooden beams at 141 Ann Street in Griffintown.

And it gets better: The Nonesuch Art on Paper Awards got a very nice write up in Montréal’s very hip and prestigious Kolaj Magazine. Check out who gets a mention here .

Getting the Brush Off…for a Good Cause

I’m happy to announce that three of my collages:

“Reflections” 
“Duck Day Afternoon”
“Race Time, Saratoga”

were all recently selected to be part of The Brush Off painting competition at Galerie Avenue Art in Montreal. Avenue Art is a gorgeous art gallery located in leVieux Montreal – which as its name would suggest is the oldest part of the city – right on the Old Port.

The Brush Off is a competition, exhibition, and fundraising event, with a percentage of the sales going towards Art Based Projects for people living with Alzheimer’s.
The opening night event is October 16th, 6:30 – 9:00 pm. Tickets are $25 at the door. The exhibition continues until November 14th. Galerie Avenue Art is located at 731 de la Commune West, on the second floor.
I’m curious to see the other artwork and to meet the other nine artists!
