Showing at Richmond Library Rotunda

For those of you readers in the Lower Mainland, I thought I'd let you know that I currently have ten pieces hanging up in the  Main Richmond Library in the rotunda. There are very few spaces to show artwork in Richmond and when I had originally applied to show they told me that earliest I could get was April of 2011. Okay....... As it turns out, a space came available this year and I jumped at it.

The consists of ten original monotypes that have been hand-colored with chalk pastels. I chose a set of landscapes and moon images that I have been working on.  The set looks really cohesive and shows quite well on the deeply colored walls. I'm always happy to get the chance to show in a public space because my work needs to be seen in person and up-close to really be appreciated. Something is lost in the scale and the record of my hand when  my pieces are shown online. I guess that can be said about most original artwork.

The show will be on for a very short time so take a peek at it if you get the chance. The show runs April 1-15 and the library is closed on Monday April 5th.

  1. Very nice! Congrats to you! Well deserved...

  2. I've never been in there before, but it looks like a really lovely space. Congrats!

  3. Wow, congrats! I've never been to that library - is that near Richmond Centre? I spend my summers living with my mom near Ironwood, but I will definitely have to visit that branch when I get there! It's amazing how many things are in your own city that you don't even know about!
