february news

February 5, 2009

every february i think of the same things: how i’m always sick on valentine’s day, and my grade 5 teacher, mrs. bateman, who used to make us repeat the word “feb-RU-ary” over & over til we got it right….


… Absorb 2009 is coming up on valentine’s day and i have a piece entered into their juried competition, “In the Red”

— for all the fun, head down to the Pepper Jack Cafe in Hamilton on Sat., Feb. 14.

…near the end of the month, on Feb. 28,  McMaster University in Hamilton is holding their annual Global Citizens Conference and Art Show in the Students Centre.  I will have a selection of Hamilton-inspired paintings on display along with a number of other local artists – go see, it’s free.

… on the same day, Mother Goose Co-operative preschool is holding their big annual fundraiser, Martini Night & Silent Auction.  this year’s theme is “masquerade” and there will be the usual slate of activities such as: live band, wine raffle, 50/50 draw, fine cuisine, live auction, silent auction and MARTINIS!  i will have a painting in the live auction, so if you’re looking to purchase one of my works for less than retail, tonight’s the night.  other  artists donating works include Nancy Benoy, Sandee Ewasiuk, Siobhan Lynch, Tara Lynne Franco, David Irvine, Rod Paget and more..

important details about The Artist Project next week, once i get my booth number…
