First of all, the Colborne Art Gallery has their Juried Art Show running now until Aug 18th.
I was there on the weekend for the Open House and met lots of very talented artists! There were 188 pieces of artwork submitted and only 55 artists were featured. I was lucky enough to be one of them!! The entire show featured only guest artists and the members of the gallery ran the event. A great idea and excellent way of getting new people into this beautiful space. I am considering becoming a member soon.... www.thecolborneartgallery.ca
This weekend The Tate Gallery in Canton is celebrating THE FIRST 10, Saturday July 20th between 1pm - 4pm. Pamela Tate, the gallery owner who is also and artist, is hosting this event as a "thank you" to her many clients, family and friends. I am going for the free cookies and, of course, to see what she has been up to creatively. The show runs July 20th to August 4th. www.pamelatate.com
