July 10th morning, I headed over to the Federation Gallery on Granville Island to assist other volunteer artists in preparing the Arts Avenue magazine for delivery to the 2000 members across Canada.
I was delighted to meet Nancy, Wally, Ina and Tony as well as Barbara Cardario who is featured in the Magazine this issue with her article "the Inside View" and Linda Bell whose painting "The Writing is on the Wall" received 2nd place for the Abstract show in March this year. The Arts Avenue is a great magazine with all sorts of information and is available at the Federation Gallery for $5 or is part of the membership.
It was also a chance to explore the exhibition with the summer gallery. You can have a look at some of the great work on facebook as well under "Federation Canadian Artists"!
Just received a share on facebook that artist friends of mine, Hans and Ghyslaine Gray will be showing their work as part of an exhibition for the the North Shore Artists' Guild on July 25th and 26th - The Pipe Shop Show. On July 25th from 12:00 to 9:00 and Sunday July 26th from 12:00 to 5:00. The show will be located in the North Vancouver shipyard east of Lonsdale Quay. There will be 36 artists and well over 400 wonderful paintings on site. So save the date.
My artist friend Carol McQuaid is in Wells right now being inspired to create a new Lithograph of the town of Wells. She also is in the "Animal Farm" show from July 10 to September 5 at the CityScape Community Art Space located at 335 Lonsdale Avenue in North Vancouver.
Lots to enjoy over the summer! Happy Painting
